BMI View: While Belgium's metals sector appears to be entering a period of relative calm after the
restructuring and downsizing of recent years, the industry is by no means out of the woods. In particular, the country's steel output hinges overwhelmingly on the actions of the ArcelorMittal, which finds itself under pressure from a low-price environment worldwide and a sluggish European economy.
Metals production in Belgium is focused largely around the country's steel industry which, having once been among the largest in Western Europe, has undergone considerable downsizing in recent years.

Steelmaking is dominated by ArcelorMittal, which operates two major production facilities in Belgium, at Liege and Gent. In recent years the group's Belgium operations have been at the centre of its global costcutting strategy with ArcelorMittal closing seven production lines and laying off 1,300 workers at its Liege plant in 2013.
