The Puls Biznesu business daily reported that the expansion is chiefly due to growing investment by steel mills combined with the introduction of anti-dumping duties on products from some countries. According to the Polish newspaper, Poland’s steel sheet exports increased by a hefty 43.2% in the first three quarters of 2017.
According to data cited by the newspaper, from January to September last year, Polish steel mills shipped 1.6 million tonnes of flat products abroad, up from 1.1 million tonnes in the same period of 2016.
The daily quotes Iwona Dyba?, head of the Polish Association of Steel Distributors as saying that the increase in Polish steel exports comes on the back of an improvement in the global economy and efforts to protect the European steel market with anti-dumping duties.
Such duties have been imposed on products from countries including China, Russia, Brazil and Ukraine, according to Dyba?.
