In recent years, the Middle East stood out as one of the steel world’s central pillar’s of growth, with consumption rising by an estimated 15% a year, and imports some 30% a year. Speakers at SBB’s Middle East conference this September will analyse to what extent the region will resume this pole position in 2010 and 2011.

Regional steel demand was and will be driven by its construction and infrastructure needs. Oil and gas production may be stagnant at present, but steel demand in Egypt, Iran, Iraq and Algeria continues to grow. Speakers at the SBB conference will highlight how local producers and imports into these and other countries will continue to supply the region. Panel sessions will focus on price developments.

The main themes for the conference are:
- Key infrastructure projects in the region
- Growing steel market protectionism – "Imports battle for market share"
- Finance for new steel projects
- Steel consumption growth – housing construction, vehicles, air-conditioning, pipes
- Iraq reconstruction
- Regional steel price developments
