TURKEY LONG STEEL EXPORTS: Costlier scrap pushes prices up but demand still poor

Turkish rebar and wire rod export prices rose over the past week in line with climbing imported scrap costs, despite sluggish demand for the material, sources said on Thursday August 13.

Fastmarkets’ weekly price assessment for steel reinforcing bar (rebar) export, fob main port Turkey was $430-440 per tonne on Thursday, up from the last week’s $425-435 per tonne fob on an actual weight basis.
