The latest EU customs statistics show that third country imports remained on a rising trend in July and August: finished steel imports rose 32 % year-on-year, compared with a 6 % rise in Q1 and 33 % rise in Q2. This means that over the first 8 months of this year total finished steel imports rose 21 %. While flat product imports grew 15 % year-on-year, long product imports increased by a staggering 49 %. These growth rates of third country imports arriving in the EU contrast sharply with the only very moderate growth of apparent consumption. Eurofer statistics show demand for finished steel products in the 1st half of 2014 rising almost 5.5 % compared with 2013.

The October index was down 7.78 points from 45.87 in September, marking its lowest level since January this year. The CSSI reflects expectations of market participants for the month ahead.
