China CRC, HDG export prices steady despite dip in demand

Export prices for Chinese cold-rolled coil and hot-dipped galvanized coil were mostly unchanged in the week to Tuesday July 23, with production cuts imposed on steelmakers in China limiting the impact of declining demand.

Prices are likely to stagnate at current levels for now in the absence of any new developments, a trader in Tianjin said.
