Continuing our look back at the best of 2020, today we’ll take one last review of the top steel posts of the year here on MetalMiner.
As with metals as a whole, steel prices experienced a rocky 2020.
The coronavirus pandemic slammed metals demand overall, including steel demand. The automotive industry idled production at the end of Q1 and into Q2, severely denting demand.
However, eventually automakers restarted lines and demand returned. As the year has progressed, steel prices have continued to rise and show no signs of slowing down in the near term. The U.S. HRC price, for example, is up a whopping 28.61% over the last month.
With that, let’s take a look back at the most-viewed steel stories of the year.
