Tube and wire Düsseldorf April Düsseldorf

As already noted in the market observation in January and February, the nickel price is rising slowly but steadily. This is also reflected in the increase in the alloy surcharge for April 2024. Nevertheless, it is not clear why this makes sense, as a rise in prices does not appear to be justified to the same extent given the subdued market situation and volumes. We will be happy to exchange ideas with our suppliers at Tube and wire and will also have the best market information available for you afterwards. Our grinding centre is currently processing round tube bends with a diameter of Ø306mm. After processing, the tubes and elbows will have uniform Ra values < 1.2my.

March surcharge stainless steel

As expected, the March 2024 alloy surcharge is moving slightly upwards, but this does not correspond to the current demand and economic situation. The price movement could be seen as a silver lining on the horizon, but this will not yet mean a major price surge.
