Domestic Pipe

There has been little or no change since September’s report.


Import Pipe

There has been little or no change since September’s report.


Weld Fittings & Flanges

Although there has been some unsubstantiated talk and speculation, there is little or no change since September’s report.


Forged Steel Fittings

There is little or no change since last month’s report. On Oct. 4, 2017, Bonney Forge filed petitions for antidumping and countervailing duties on forged steel fittings from the People’s Republic of China, Italy and Taiwan. Following the petition, one major importer of forged steel fittings announced a 10% price increase effective Dec. 1, 2017. The petition is in the early stages, but could affect both supply and pricing of forged steel fittings by domestic manufacturers and importers.
