The Steel and Metals Industry is characterized by high fixed costs and incredibly challenging foreign competition and globalized demand. With significant commodity cost fluctuations, being able to pass through cost changes in the form of pricing is critical, but with highly educated customers, metals consulting firms and companies in this industry have recognized that this is often challenging.
Continuous process manufacturing makes the boom and bust nature of this industry very difficult to manage. In strong markets, businesses are caught with an undersupply of product, while in weak markets, inventories rise rapidly and capacity remains underutilized. As markets continue to consolidate, sustaining traction on pricing will become even more difficult.
