Egypt Metals Report Q4 2013

BMI View: We forecast modest growth in the Egyptian steel sector over the coming years, in line with our
outlook for the wider economy. We examine the influence of the weak Egyptian pound on the sector and
whether depreciation is sufficient to compete in an over-supplied regional market. We expect the worsening
political situation to weigh on growth.
We remain positive on the effects of Egypt's transition towards a democratic government, as investors will
begin to look more favourably towards the country as a potential market to work with. We have seen these
positive effects on the country are already beginning to show. For 2013, BMI forecasts steady Egyptian
steel production growth on the back of greater investment in expanding production capacity and more
stability in the country following the 2012 presidential elections, as well as greater investment pouring in
from Gulf countries looking diversify their regional portfolios.
