E.E: What can you tell us about the market trends?

FERRATO DAVIDE: In response to COVID-19 many events have revolutionized the market and in the beginning of January 2021 the price of the raw material has increased a lot, and so this fact impacts negatively on the orders: many purchasers can’t afford to bear such a great cost. So, if the contract is in the short term, the buyers are forced to place the order immediately also because they are also afraid that the cost of the raw material could increase may be in spring.

Other buyers, if the contract is in long term, prefer to wait to place the order, expecting that in the meantime the price will drop.

E.E: What estimation do you have for 2021?

FERRATO DAVIDE: It depends on the various sectors we can work, surely there will be a recovery of the market, but it depends on various factors, for example the cost of the raw material and also European funds for infrastructure.

It’s difficult making predictions from today to tomorrow about orders, planning, prices, but we are definitely positive because we are sure that the market will recover.
