We will publish the Future Capabilities of the UK Steel sector study as soon as it has been finalised.

The study, which involved the sector at all stages, was intended to support the UK steel sector identify future opportunities, in terms of domestic steel demand, within the UK market over the next 15 years. It should also help shape the steel sector’s proposal for a sector deal, under the Government’s Industrial Strategy. As well as generating policy considerations for the Government, including potentially around procurement practices, it will identify challenges which need to be addressed by the sector itself in order to capture these future opportunities.
