This week, China's scrap steel market continued to maintain a rising trend. Because of the recent market slowdown, many plants have been forced to keep raising prices to replenish inventories. The average transaction price was about 80 yuan higher than last week. Scrap deliveries picked up in the second half of the week. In the last two weeks, as scrap steel has become stronger than screw thread steel, EAF plant losses have also increased. Some steel plants in the north have entered the winter break period directly, and the maintenance of steel plants in the southwest has increased. According to statistics, this week, China's 135 steel plants EAF steel capacity utilization rate was 42.03%, 0.89% lower than last week.   Electric furnace steel output was 235,700 tons/day, two consecutive weeks of decline.
