Main factor of Ukrainian steel output growth is re-launch of production at DMK in the end of July (this mill has been idle for the last months). Also we note y-o-y growth of production in August by almost 10% at Zaporizhstal (due to repairs work at one of the blast furnaces in H1 2017 the mill reduced steel output at 5%).

As for total January-August 2017 output, it made close to 13.8M tons, which is by 16% lower y-o-y (disregarding production of enterprises situated at non-controlled by Ukrainian government territory of Donbass Ukrainian output declined by less than 10%).

Steel pipes production dynamics remains rather good in August pipes output has been slightly below local highs of previous two months, but by 21% higher y-o-y (up to 88k tons).
