  • With the advent of the country’s first non-military government in 54 years, Myanmar is anticipated to strengthen reform and opening-up measures and the economic sanctions against Myanmar will be further lifted. With its growing geopolitical and geo-economic importance, and improved conditions for foreign investment, Myanmar is expected to maintain high economic growth until 2020.
  • Despite its inadequate domestic steel production, Myanmar’s steel consumption is expected to grow high, at about 8% a year. However, due to poor competitiveness in steel production, caused by power shortages, substandard operational skills, and inadequate facility management, Myanmar’s capacity utilization rate is just above 20%. Increasing demand for steel is mostly satisfied by imports. Demand for long products and flat products for construction is projected to lead the market because Myanmar’s economic development will be centered on infrastructure, construction, and light industries in the short-to-mid term.
