POSCO is a South Korean company that exports steel to Taiwan. Recently, the company has been struggling with low demand and the trucker’s strike. We hope for good news from them in the upcoming months.
Steel export from South Korea is still facing an uphill climb of recovering from September’s Typhoon. With the truck drivers’ strike and the current low sentiment, there hasn’t been any offers for steel plate from POSCO. However, with China Steel Corporation (CSC) opening new list prices in early November, POSCO is hoping to restart from a more transparent outlook. The iron ore price has also been going up, which helps increase the hot-rolled coil price in China and US.
