This year, China's steel market showed abnormal activity. Dissolving excess production capacity of 304 stainless steel in the early measures to implement, and flood disasters caused by heavy rains in some areas, 304 stainless steel domestic production has dropped, contradiction between supply and demand in the market a short-term improvement, falling steel prices from turning up.

With steel prices up, contributed to the enthusiasm of the 304 stainless steel production, follow the is more profits than in previous years. According to first half of 304 stainless steel enterprises to realize a sales income of 1.29 trillion yuan, down 11.93%; profit 12.587 billion yuan, up 4.27 times; amount of loss-making companies fell 22.8%.

For now, resolve excess capacity still arduous task in the second half. The first half of the 304 stainless steel industry profitability, is the country promoting effect of reflected stainless steel overcapacity, enable enterprises to resolve the overcapacity of necessity and urgency had a fuller understanding, by dissolving excess capacity to promote confidence in the transition out of 304 stainless steel industry to achieve tangible results more determined.
