About WSD

World Steel Dynamics is a "Strategic Information Service" providing critical and new perspectives on possible and probable steel industry developments. WSD regularly analyzes and publishes reports on steel prices, steelmakers' costs, steel supply/demand and steel finances. WSD also undertakes customized steel research assignments, specialized in-depth studies, private consulting studies and investment banking assessments.

WSD's steel experience, steel database and availability of steel statistics are unmatched. In performing steel forecasts, WSD seeks to understand, among other things, how the "pricing power" of steel companies the world over will be impacted by changes in the steel industry's structure. WSD has a demonstrated history of almost always being ahead of the pricing curve. The WSD international client list includes major integrated and non-integrated steel companies, steel users, equipment and raw material suppliers, financial institutions, money managers, government agencies, metal traders, steel service centers and trade associations.

WSD also offers management consulting at the steel buyer/seller interface. On a confidential and "hands-on" basis, WSD advises clients on the approaches that may prove useful to improving their steel buying and selling performance, while at the same time reducing risk.

We encourage potential subscribers to visit us at our offices in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey (5 minutes from the George Washington Bridge) to see first-hand our products and to have discussions with our research staff.
