Listen: An atypical year for Brazilian steel: Price hikes, slow recovery and presidential elections

The pricing power of domestic mills in Brazil was built on strengthening Chinese steel prices over the past few months, putting Brazilian steel products near discounts against imported material. Historically, sustainable import parity premiums for domestic flats and longs over imported goods were at 5%-10% and 10%-15%, respectively.

Nevertheless, the domestic environment remained on a slow recovery pace, and presidential elections have brought an additional tone of uncertainty, according to S&P Global Platts editors Adriana Carvalho, Priscilla Antunes and Jose Guerra in Sao Paulo.
