QBE publishes Metals Autumn 2022 Update


Authored by QBE Senior Underwriter Ally Connolly

Sector overview

As we head into the final quarter of 2022, we reflect on a year for metal markets that has been unpredictable and volatile. Steel prices have been on a positive trajectory for most of the year, and as a result, stockholders, mills, and traders have benefitted which resulted in strong margin generation during the early parts of the year. As we move through H2, the landscape has somewhat changed and challenges across both upstream and downstream supply chains are now starting to impact the sector, as well as many others.
