Browse 126 market data Tables and 60 Figures spread through 185 Pages and in-depth TOC on "Duplex Stainless Steel Market" http://www.marketsandmarkets.com/Market-Reports/duplex-stainless-steel-market-32316483.html Early buyers will receive 10% customization on this report. The growing demand for duplex stainless steel from various end-use industries, including the growing construction and oil & gas industries, and rising cost of raw materials used to manufacture stainless are among the factors driving the growth of the duplex stainless steel market, globally. Based on product form, the tubes segment is estimated to lead the Duplex Stainless Steel Market during the forecast period. Based on product form, the tubes segment dominated the Duplex Stainless Steel Market in 2016. This dominance can be attributed to the rising demand for tubes, mainly from the oil & gas and chemical & petrochemical industry. Duplex stainless steel is extensively used in these industries because of its high resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion, stress corrosion cracking in chloride bearing environments, sulfide stress corrosion, very high mechanical strength, and high energy absorption, low coefficient of thermal expansion, and good workability and weldability. Duplex stainless steel based tubes are mainly used in offshore oil & gas exploration and production, heat exchangers in chemical industry, and in hydraulic and instrumentation applications in marine industry. Duplex stainless steel is widely used in the oil & gas industry. Based on end-use industry, the oil & gas industry segment dominated the Duplex Stainless Steel Market in 2016. Over the past few decades, corrosive conditions in the oil & gas industry have steadily grown in severity. The offshore oil industry continually pushes oil exploration to greater depths, which leads to higher pressure conditions and harsher environments. To adapt to these difficult environments, and to safeguard against the high cost of component failure, it has become critical to ensure that the right alloys are used. As the depth for exploration increases, piping becomes heavier. The superior mechanical strength of duplex stainless steel helps create lighter pipes. Duplex stainless steel is used in process piping systems, separators, scrubbers, pumps, manifolds, Christmas tree components, and flowlines and pipelines transporting corrosive oils and gas. Asia-Pacific is the largest market for duplex stainless steel Asia-Pacific is the most promising market for duplex stainless steels and is projected to remain the same in the coming years as well. Continuously increasing production of the manufacturing sector to cater domestic requirements for high-quality products and rising number of export activities in the region are the factors leading to an increased demand for duplex stainless steel in the region. Moreover, increasing population and growing number of end-use industries in the Asia-Pacific region have also led to innovations and developments in the field of duplex stainless steel, thereby fueling the growth of the Asia-Pacific duplex stainless steel market.

PHILADELPHIA, July 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carpenter Technology Corporation (NYSE:CRS) (the “Company”) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2017. The Company reported net income of $25.5 million or $0.54 earnings per share for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017. Excluding special items, adjusted earnings per diluted share was $0.58 for the quarter. “Our strong fourth quarter results reflect the continued execution of our strategy to be an irreplaceable solutions provider coupled with the continued success from the rollout of the Carpenter Operating Model and commercial organization realignment,” said Tony Thene, Carpenter’s President and CEO. “While conditions continue to strengthen in many of our end-use markets, we are gaining momentum as a complete solutions provider for our diverse customer base. In the Aerospace and Defense end-use market, we continue to see increasing demand for our products across our diversified sub-markets, especially engines, where we are seeing continued healthy order flows related to the next generation engines. We are experiencing similar momentum across other markets, such as the oil & gas sub-market, where our Amega West business continues to benefit from our investments in new products over the last several years. In addition, we see stronger demand in both the Aerospace and Medical end-use markets for our titanium solutions. The improved productivity levels achieved through the Carpenter Operating Model at our Dynamet facilities have allowed us to capture this incremental demand while also shortening our lead times and strengthening our customer relationships.” “Overall, fiscal year 2017 was a successful one as we continued to build upon our foundation for long-term sustainable growth through our progress in becoming a complete solutions provider, as well as our expansion in core growth areas including titanium powder and additive manufacturing. We enter fiscal year 2018 with notable operating momentum as we focus on leveraging our solutions-based commercial approach and realigned sales team to drive backlog growth, broaden applications for our products and deepen customer relationships across our end-use markets. Overall, we remain well positioned to build on our progress in the year ahead, as we seek to expand market share, drive additional efficiency gains and grow the intrinsic value of our organization to the benefit of our shareholders.” Net sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017 were $507.7 million compared with $457.7 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016, an increase of $50.0 million (or 10.9 percent), on flat volume. Net sales excluding surcharge were $438.9 million, an increase of $33.2 million (or 8.2 percent) from the same period a year ago. Operating income was $44.6 million compared to $29.2 million in the prior year period. Operating income—excluding pension earnings, interest and deferrals (EID) and special items—was $53.4 million, compared to $36.1 million in the prior year period. These results primarily reflect higher sales and improving mix compared to the same quarter a year ago as well as the continued positive impact of the Carpenter Operating Model. During the fourth quarter, the Company divested Specialty Steel Supply Inc. (SSS), a distribution business based in Texas. The divestiture was completed in two separate transactions with cash proceeds totaling $12.0 million. The results for the current fourth quarter include a pre-tax charge of $3.2 million recorded in connection with the divestiture. Cash provided from operating activities in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017 was $93.8 million, compared to $119.7 million in the same quarter last year. The decrease in operating cash flow was primarily related to higher working capital levels, mostly accounts receivable, driven by improving sequential sales in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017. Free cash flow in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017 was $64.4 million, compared to free cash flow of $83.2 million in the same quarter last year. Capital expenditures were $35.4 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017 compared to $29.1 million in the same quarter last year. For the full fiscal year 2017, capital expenditures were $98.5 million. Total liquidity, including cash and available revolver balance, was $460.2 million at the end of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. This consisted of $66.3 million of cash and $393.9 million of available borrowings under the Company’s credit facility. Carpenter will host a conference call and webcast presentation today, July 27th at 10:00 a.m. ET, to discuss the financial results and operations for the fourth quarter and full year fiscal 2017.

The service cost component of net pension expense, which represents the estimated cost of future pension liabilities earned associated with active employees, is included in the operating results of the business segments. The residual net pension expense, or pension earnings, interest and deferrals (pension EID), is comprised of the expected return on plan assets, interest costs on the projected benefit obligations of the plans, and amortization of actuarial gains and losses and prior service costs and is included under the heading "Pension earnings, interest and deferrals". Management believes that removing the impacts of raw material surcharge from operating margin provides a more consistent basis for comparing results of operations from period to period, thereby permitting management to evaluate performance and investors to make decisions based on the ongoing operations of the Company. In addition, management believes that excluding the impact of pension earnings, interest and deferrals, which may be volatile due to changes in the financial markets, is helpful in analyzing the true operating performance of the Company. Management also believes that removing the impact of the loss on divestiture of business, excess inventory write-down, restructuring and asset impairment charges, goodwill impairment and other special items is helpful in analyzing the operating performance of the Company, as these costs are not indicative of ongoing operating performance. Management believes that earnings per share adjusted to exclude the impact of the loss on divestiture of business, excess inventory write-down, restructuring and asset impairment charges, goodwill impairment and other special items is helpful in analyzing the operating performance of the Company, as these costs are not indicative of ongoing operating performance. Management uses its results excluding these amounts to evaluate its operating performance and to discuss its business with investment institutions, the Company's board of directors and others. Management believes that the free cash flow measure provides useful information to investors regarding our financial condition because it is a measure of cash generated which management evaluates for alternative uses. Management uses its results to evaluate its operating performance and to discuss its business with investment institutions, the Company's board of directors and others.
