In Q1 2017, the revenue of the ferrous metal smelting and pressing sector increased by 23.2% y/y to RMB 1.7bn. Steel prices remained high in the beginning of 2017, although slightly lower than those in the end of 2016, when they hit the highest level in two and a half years, growing about 60% over 2015. The increasing spending on infrastructure construction and the government’s determination to curb the overcapacity within the sector were the major factors behind the rising prices. The total profit of the ferrous metal smelting and pressing sector in the first three months of 2017 amounted to RMB 65.7mn, compared to just RMB 15.3mn in the same period of 2016. Most of China's steel mills reported good profits in the end of 2016, which stimulated them to increase output.
