India’s imported scrap markets have been supported by healthy demand for finished steel in the country, which prevented there being steeper losses in the scrap price, sources have told Metal Bulletin. Prices for the lower-quality HMS 1 and 2 scrap (80:20) grade narrowed downward by $5 per tonne week-on-week on February 2. HMS 1 import prices were heard at $354 per tonne CFR from South Africa and at $350 per tonne CFR from the Middle East, sources said. According to the HMS 1 and 2 scrap suppliers, with HMS 1 prices inching downward, there is no reason to pay a premium to buy shredded material.
