Nordic hot rolled flat consumption recovers slowly

A gradual recovery in consumption is reported, in Denmark, supporting a modest price increase for hot rolled coil, in October. In Sweden, the trend in demand varies by sector, with sales to manufacturers of pumping equipment and forklift trucks falling very little during this year’s difficulties. Order tonnages from makers of trucks and agricultural machinery are recovering. In Norway, purchase volumes are stable but, in Finland, distributors’ sales were down by 10 percent in September, compared with the same month in 2019.
