Steel Building Prices
What affects my pricing?
Steel is a commodity that behaves similarly to other commodities such as oil. It can be difficult to grasp the concept of steel prices rising and falling because consumers are not as aware of steel price fluctuations as they are with other price changes like oil which changes their gas prices.
Steel prices like oil prices are ultimately influenced by supply and demand. Oil prices can increase because of factors that are reported on your local news like wars, pipeline malfunctions and the summer driving season. On the other hand, steel prices can also react to decreased supply and increased demand but its factors are often not as publicized. Some recent impacts on steel supply include the tsunami that hit Japan, manufacturing facility strikes throughout the world and construction season. All of these occurrences increase the need for steel and as a result the global supply goes down which causes a spike in steel prices.
