KPMG Metals


As the sector looks to reduce costs, we believe the need to invest in updated technologies and higher growth regions is paramount. This could reduce substitution risk and offset slower growth patterns in more mature markets. However, many attempts at budgeting are being hampered by unpredictable spikes in demand and volatile spot prices in finished goods.

For these and other reasons, we expect to see further sector consolidation in order to keep the industry competitive. This will result in improved bargaining power, investor interest and production discipline.

There are many uncertainties in todays metals sector, all along the value chain. But there are also opportunities. KPMG works with businesses right across the metals sector, from steel producers to aluminium processors. Our industry experts will provide the insight and support you need, from strategic planning to advice on applying IFRS, so you remain fully compliant and well placed to exploit avenues for growth.
