Sales results

While NAFTA steel demand in 2013 for hot-rolled, cold-rolled and coated products remained flat or declined, Severstal shipments of hot-dipped galvanized products grew by 7.7 per cent, followed by 2.1 per cent growth of hot-rolled strip and plate, and 4.4 per cent growth of cold-rolled sheet. Cold-rolled sheet and hot-dipped galvanised products are predicted to produce more growth in the future as our capacity continues to increase.

In 2013, the automotive market continued to improve significantly. Growth in construction was driven by the residential sector while the non-residential market declined.

Customer growth in both Columbus and Dearborn was due to a combination of market growth and share gain. For Columbus, the energy market (pipe and tube), had the greatest impact, while growth in Dearborn came from increases in automotive.

Sales by product

Dearborn and Columbus are prioritising the growth of the higher value added products in their portfolios. In 2011-2012, we launched two more galvanising lines at Columbus and Dearborn with a total capacity of one million tonnes, bringing our total capacity to two million tonnes. In 2013 we continued to increase our capacity, increasing sales of galvanised and other metallic coated sheet by 8 per cent in one year.

However, the division’s sales revenue remained unchanged in 2013 at US$3,878 million due to lower realized prices.
