2021年已经看起来不同了

Are you happy to finally have 2020 behind us? ​

Last year was crazy for the steel pail industry, with COVID-19 negatively affecting our customer demand, although not as bad as others, such as the automotive industry.

One industry, in particular, that was hit hard was raw steel manufacturing, 因为许多工厂的产能被削减,产量大幅减少. 这导致了ope下载网址所说的钢铁桶行业的“组合拳”, 由于强劲的需求加上有限的钢材供应导致每个主要的钢桶制造商延长他们的交货期; us included. ​

幸运的是,与2020年相比,2021年对钢桶来说已经是不同的一年. Here’s how! ​


RAW STEEL PRODUCTION CONTINUES TO INCREASE​

听到粗钢产量继续反弹至新冠疫情前水平总是件好事. ​

According to Steel Market Update, “U.S. raw steel production inched up 1.3 percent in November to 6,947,000 net tons”. This is great news, 因为这使得2020年11月成为自2020年3月以来粗钢产量最好的月份, 那是在Covid-19真正开始影响一切之前. ​

Raw steel production then was 7,710,000 tons, 所以ope下载网址离回到正常生产水平只有10%的距离. 

SCRAP DEMAND IS ON THE RISE – AND SO ARE PRICES​​

What happens when people can’t get new steel? ​

They turn to what the industry refers to as “scrap”. ​

These recycled steel metal “scraps” can be remade into high-quality goods; generally through a process using an electric arc furnace. With it being so hard to get new rolls of steel, 许多制造商转而使用废料来制造产品.

This huge demand spike 已经把废金属工业变成了一个主要的利润驱动因素 a first since 2019.

STEEL MILL CAPACITY IS SLOWLY INCREASING

钢铁厂总是在改变公司所有权或他们的操作程序,以努力增加生产和产能. ​

2019冠状病毒病导致许多钢铁厂暂时停产,自2020年夏季以来,恢复正常水平的进程缓慢. ​

幸运的是,ope下载网址看到大大小小的工厂正在接近正常的生产水平; some are even near 90% capacity again.

OVERALL STEEL PRICES ARE UP​

需求旺盛而供应不足最终会导致价格上涨,钢铁也不例外. ​​
