US 232 case for steel

The recommendation report to the president has been published but no action or announcement yet from the administration on their actions. The report recommends significant actions to restrain imports of steel mill products to allow domestic manufacturers to have adequate capacity utilization to remain viable.

For steel and iron castings, there are no recommendations of action. If the administration acts on the recommendations it will likely have little effect on steel castings. It will likely lead to higher prices on scrap and other supplies. It also may lead customers to prefer domestic supplies supporting US plants.
