Why should Israel Import Steel?

1. Availability - The local steel industry has low capacity and customers require abundant steel in an efficient manner. It is highly in demand by the various industries of Israel. Due to the immense increase in the demand of steel, it is necessary for the country to import it in order to fulfil the country’s needs.

2. Steel Cost – Due to the domestic incapacity and high costs of production, steel is more expensive to buy locally than it is in the world market. Israel spent about $1.73 billion on iron and steel since the country itself is unable to meet the steel requirement of various industries.

3. Steel Quality – While a majority of international steel suppliers have good company reputations and quality, some small local producers can have diverse steel quality. Local steel suppliers do not have good reputations and are generally not trusted much due to the low quality of their products. Local steel production of Israel is insufficient too. Therefore, in order to get superior quality products that meet their exceptional standards, internationally renowned suppliers are the best option.
