British steel slips into an era of steep decline – it comes as no surprise

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Despite cries of foul play, it should not come as a surprise to anyone that the UK steel industry has lost its edge – it was actually lost a while ago. The official line – low prices and a global glut brought on by excess Chinese supply and low demand – is true to some extent. But it tells only part of the story.
