A special announcement from the editor...

Dear readers,


I am writing to update you on an important and exciting change in February 2018: the launch of Metal Market Magazine.

For more than 100 years, two publications have provided definitive coverage of steel and metal market prices: Metal Bulletin and American Metal Market.

American Metal Market’s and Metal Bulletin’s market news and price developments have long been delivered online and have been subsequently joined by FastMarkets. Meanwhile, long-term trends, analysis and feature-length articles have been published in the print, PDF and – for American Metal Market – e-book formats of Metal Bulletin Magazine and American Metal Market’s magazine.

Metal Bulletin Group’s mission is to provide leading pricing intelligence, including independent industry benchmarks, for the metal and mining industries, so the time has come for our two magazines to complement that important role by uniting as one as Metal Market Magazine.

Bringing together the strengths and heritages of its two predecessors for covering international and US developments, Metal Market Magazine will cover long-term trends and developments in prices, supply, demand, production and technology from its first issue in February.

From scrap and mined raw materials through to finished end-uses, it will provide profiles, analyses, summary data, reviews and forecasts for the complete global supply chain.

Whether your preference is to read the magazine in print or digital format, look out for the first edition in February. In the meantime, enjoy these final editions of Metal Bulletin Magazine and American Metal Market magazine.

We’ll be back in the New Year with our united title!

Yours faithfully,
Richard Barrett
Editor, Metal Market Magazine
