Rolling away: Consolidation and increasing prices will limit industry revenue growth

The Steel Rolling and Drawing industry in Canada has rapidly expanded over the past five years due to strong export sales to the United States and the compounding effects of falling steel prices and a depreciating Canadian dollar. Integrated steel mills generally have a competitive advantage due to their ability to source steel internally, thus eliminating the need to rely on outside suppliers for steel rods or sheets. As primary steel producers continue to consolidate operations, they ultimately cut standalone rolling and drawing mills out of the market by selling rolled and drawn steel products directly to customers. The industry is expected to stagnate over the next five years, with growth stifled primarily by rebounding steel prices and an anticipated appreciation of the more.
