Steel slab buyers in Italy seek lower prices amid weak finished steel markets

The market for imported steel slab in Italy was quiet in the week to Friday September 15, with a downtrend in finished steel markets putting pressure on prices, industry sources told Fastmarkets.

Plate producers were the major importers of slab in the country, so the situation in that business was crucial to an understanding of the trend in the slab market.
