The Outlook revision is associated with the uncertainty of the state of the economy in the short term, the balance of supply and demand and prices for steel products and raw materials, as well as the possible rise of protectionism and disruptions in supply chains for global steel markets. The forecast revision reflects expectations S&P Russia's GDP downward by 0.9% instead of rising by 1.8%. According to the Agency, the adjustment of expectations in conjunction with measures to counter the spread of COVID-19 will have a negative impact on demand for steel.
