Stainless Steel Surcharges, September 2014

Stainless steel surcharges for September delivery have been announced by EU mills. Prices have remained relatively firm through the summer period. The figures show a slight fall for 316 stainless but slight increases for Ferritic stainless steel like 430 and 409. Currently many mills are closed for summer so demand for raw material is lower, prices are expected to remain firm for the time being.

The Indonesian Nickel export ban remains firm and a close eye is being kept on developments in Russia which could affect Nickel supply. Post summer if demand increases prices could increase again.
