Hoa Sen, Nam Kim continue to benefit from high galvanised steel exports to EU: VDSC

HÀ NỘI — Demand from the European Union and North American markets recovered and rose strongly, boosting the export volume of galvanised steel and offsetting weak domestic consumption in the first half of this year, Việt Dragon Securities Corporation (VDSC) said in a report. 

As EU and North American markets account for  八0 -  九0 per cent of Nam Kim (HKG)’s galvanised steel export and  三0 per cent of Hoa Sen (HSG)’s, these leading galvanised steel manufacturing companies all recorded good export volumes in the second quarter, VDSC added. 

A monthly report from the Việt Nam Steel Association (VSA) showed that total consumption of galvanised steel was  四 二 八,0 八 四 tonnes in July, down  六. 五 八 per cent month-on-month but still rose  一 八. 八 per cent compared to the same period last year. 

Of which, galvanised steel export volume of VSA members reached  三00, 四0 四 tonnes, up  六 per cent month-on-month and  八 四. 二 per cent over last year. 

Meanwhile, COVID- 一 九 control measures in the south and some big cities have negatively affected domestic demand as local consumption volume fell  三 五 per cent year-on-year to  一 二 七, 六 八0 tonnes in July.

During the same period, Hoa Sen sold  一 五 八,000 tonnes of galvanised steel, unchanged compared to  一 五 五,000 tonnes in June. Of which, export volume rose from  一0 二,000 tonnes in June to  一 二 三,000 tonnes in July. Nam Kim’s export volume reached  六 二,000 tonnes in July, stable from  六 三, 五00 tonnes in June.

Việt Dragon Securities believes that galvanised steel exports to EU markets will be stable at a high level until the end of  二0 二 二 thanks to favourable trade policies and increasing demand.

The securities firm said that Việt Nam has an advantage over Turkey, South Korea and India thanked to trade policies. South Korea and India, the main competitors of Việt Nam, were imposed quotas of  一 七0,000 tonnes per year and  二 一0,000 tonnes per year, respectively. 

Meanwhile, Turkey's galvanised steel has lost its competitive advantage when it was subject to an anti-dumping duty of  四. 七- 七. 三 per cent on hot rolled steel since April. The import quota of galvanised metal ( 四A) of EU for Việt Nam and other countries is about  二 million tonnes per year in the next three years. 

In the first quarter of  二0 二 一, the country exported about  三00,000 tonnes of galvanised metal, mainly galvanised steel. Therefore, there is still room for growth for Vietnamese galvanised steel manufacturers.

VDSC added that EU steel consumption is forecast to grow  一0. 二 per cent in  二0 二 一 and  四. 八 per cent in  二0 二 二 on post-pandemic recovery.

On the other hand, lower production costs in Việt Nam can support galvanised steel export revenue in the medium term. During  二0 二 一- 二 二, high electricity and carbon prices will make steel production costs in Europe at least US$ 一 三 五 -  一 五 五/tonne higher than in Việt Nam. 

Currently, the carbon emission price is about $ 六0 per tonne, and one tonne of steel produced from basic oxygen furnace (BOF) will emit  一. 八 五 tonnes of CO 二.

Besides, steel produced from electric arc furnace (EAF) accounts for  四0 per cent of steel production in Europe and records a production cost that is  一 五 -  二0 per cent higher than that of BOF technology. 

In the short term, the hot rolled coil (HRC) price difference between the EU and Việt Nam, which is at a high level of about $ 三00 -  五 五0 per tonne, can turn into  一 九 -  二 二 per cent of gross profit margin in the last two quarters of the year.

Domestic galvanised steel exporters may face more challenges in  二0 二 三 as a carbon border mechanism in the EU can be applied, resulting in less price competitiveness for Vietnamese products. Therefore, VDSC expects galvanised steel export volumes and profits to drop sharply in  二0 二 三.

Meanwhile, as Directive  一 六 is being applied in the southern provinces, which account for  三 四 per cent of construction steel consumption, most construction activities were halted, leading to low consumption in July.

Construction steel consumption reached  七 九 一, 四 一 六 tonnes in July, down  七. 一 per cent compared to the same period last year, according to VSA’s report.

Steel pipe consumption dropped even more sharply to  一 四 三, 四 九 三 tonnes, down  四0. 九 per cent. 

Prevention measures extended in August caused construction steel and steel pipe consumption to remain low.

Steel stocks attract more attention

On the stock market, the optimistic outlook over galvanised steel exports has been reflected in manufacturers’ value, with NKG and HSG shares witnessing rallies in recent sessions, attracting strong cash flow. 

HSG shares closed last week at VNĐ 四 四, 九00 per cent share, up more than  三 六 per cent from the bottom set in mid-July, the average liquidity was approximately  二0 million shares per session. 

NKG shares also jumped nearly  三 八. 二 per cent ​​in market value since the end of July  二0 二 一, the liquidity also reached millions of units per session. The company shares traded at VNĐ 四 一, 四00 per share last Friday. VNS
