Steel prices ease over 10% coal crisis playing havoc on secondary steelmakers.

Steel sector players are facing some heat owing to high input commodity prices as finished steel products have begun to decline since April after the Russia-Ukraine war broke out.


Prices in the long products segment have declined on an average of 10-15 per cent to Rs 57,000 per tonne in Kolkata market from a high of Rs 65,000 a tonne. Coal which is a key raw material for the secondary steel producers has turned out to be the major pain point, officials said. - economictimes
