WSD Reports and Publications

At the core of the WSD annual subscription service lies our unique and extensive database - which includes steel pricing series for many products and countries; steel demand trends and activity levels in steel-consuming industries; capacity changes for steelmaking, blast furnace, cokemaking, steel scrap substitute and selected finishing mills; effective steelmaking capacity versus nameplate capacity; detailed production costs by process for cokemaking, blast furnaces, steelmaking, casting, hot-rolled band, cold-rolled coil and wire rod; steel company profit, balance sheet and profit forecasts; and a host of other items. This, combined with our unprecedented access to key players in the steel industry the world over - which provides us with ongoing crosschecks on critical developments and our special analytical methods - which seek to permit us to better understand the factors that may cause shifts in the "pricing power" of the steel mills (relative to their competitors, customers and suppliers) positions WSD as the world's leading information service covering the steel industry.

An annual subscription to the WSD Information Service is comprised of four fundamental products:

The "Early Warning System" That Works

WSD's "early warning system" is a series of reports published on a rotational basis. They are based on: a) extensive marketplace feedback; b) our comprehensive monthly database for shipments, imports and exports for flat and long products by country and region; c) our global metallics balances system; and d) our effective steelmaking operating rates by country. We employ special analytical methodologies and are determined to always see the industry with "new eyes." WSD's staff has more than 200 years of aggregated experience in studying the industry. Access to information from contacts globally is unprecedented.
