Japan steel industry sees crude steel output roughly flat next FY

TOKYO, Dec 19 (Reuters) - Japan’s crude steel output is likely to remain roughly flat in the year starting in April 2020 compared with this fiscal year, when output is expected to fall, the Japan Iron and Steel Federation said on Thursday.

Domestic steel demand for construction and manufacturing will likely drop next year but export demand is expected to pick up, it said.
