Bangladesh is one of Asia's key emerging economies and the world's 3rd-fastest growing. Its galloping growth rate requires infra development at an unprecedented scale, underscoring the demand for steel, cement, power, etc. Its steel industry is worth Taka 55,000 crore (USD 62 million) with a per capita steel consumption forecasted to increase from 45 kg in 2017 to 73 kg by 2022. It is globally the 2nd-largest destination for scrapped ships and one of the largest ferrous scrap consumers with imports touching 4 mnt currently. To power economic growth, its coal imports are expected to touch 18 mnt by 2025. Infrastructure development, construction and automotive are the sectors to watch out for. SteelMint's 3rd Steel & Raw Material Conference, Emerging Bangladesh, will explore key issues like the country's steel production and demand outlook, global scrap trade flow changes especially post-the Russia-Ukraine war, the ship recycling scenario, key emerging sectors, price trends and a lot more.

The last couple of years were extremely eventful for the steel industry and its end-users, mainly due to Covid. Lockdowns led to stalling of production globally but subsequently created huge export opportunities for Indian mills to the European Union. China's export tax also offered scope for tapping markets vacated by it. Before the pandemic impact could wear off, the Russia-Ukraine war erupted, changing global trade flows. The sanctions on Russia led to steel and related raw material supply disruptions to the EU, fuelling a steel price rally. India was no exception. However, the high prices singed the user segment, leading to a fall in domestic demand but panic buying from EU end-users provided a safety valve to Indian mills. The sudden steel and iron ore export duty imposition in May set back the market. Prices started declining but still end-users are not buying, unsure when these will bottom out. Considering the geo-political risks, prices are expected to remain volatile for some time while demand is dull. But how will Indian end-users hedge their risks in a volatile market Other than the traditional markets of construction and auto etc, what are the emerging sectors that will expand steel demand in India?Steel Users Federation of India (SUFI) and SteelMint will seek answers to these questions and a lot more in a jointly hosted conference, "The Indian Steel Conference 2022"

Coal is the most important fossil fuel for meeting the country's majorenergy requirements. With the expected economic growth at the rate of 8% per annum, energy requirements will rise at a reasonable level. India is fortunate to have endowed with rich and huge resources of coal. The current updated geological coal resource of the country is to the tune of more than 308 billion tonnesas on 01.04.2016 and out of which measured resource is about 138 billion tonnes. Though India is 3rd largest producer of coal (mainly non-coking coal) in the world but the country is yet to harness the full potential to meet the growing domestic demand of coal. In this backdrop and considering the potential of Indian coal sector in terms of meeting the growing energy requirements and contribution to country's GDP, FIMI is organizing its first Conference onIndian Coal Mining ? Sustainable Growth and Way Forward on 22nd and 23rd June, 2017 at Hotel Taj Bengal, Kolkata.
