American Metal Market


American Metal Market is a renowned online provider of industry news and metal pricing information for the U.S. steel, nonferrous, and scrap markets. It was first published in 1882 as a weekly news and price paper, and it holds the distinction of being the longest continuously published newspaper in the industry. It transitioned from a traditional hard-copy newspaper to a strictly electronic format in April 2002, and it continues to thrive in this form today.

The publication is valued for its impartial coverage of the mining and manufacturing sectors. It has been described as being "as vital to the metal-buyer as the ticker is to Wall Street". This recognition stems from its ability to provide critical insights and up-to-date information that helps its readers navigate the intricacies of the metal markets.

In addition to its daily electronic publication, American Metal Market offers live news on its website, a series of weekly newsletters covering niche markets, and it hosts numerous industry conferences and events each year that delve into the state of various metal markets. The breadth and depth of its content have made it an indispensable resource for professionals involved in the U.S. steel, nonferrous, and scrap markets.

American Metal Market is a subsidiary of Astorg, a private equity company, and it is a sister publication to London-based Metal Bulletin. Both American Metal Market and Metal Bulletin were part of a Euromoney subsidiary known as Fastmarkets. After Euromoney was sold to a pair of private equity companies in July 2022, Fastmarkets was placed under the management of Astorg.

Throughout its history, American Metal Market has seen several changes. It absorbed Metalworking News in 1972, after which the Monday issue was called American Metal Market. Metalworking News Edition from 1972 to 1984, and AMM from 1984 to 1986. In 1987, Metalworking News again became a separate publication with its own numbering. American Metal Market eventually merged with Metal Bulletin Magazine to form Metal Market Magazine.

The publication covers a wide range of topics related to the metal trade, iron industry and trade, and steel industry and trade in the United States. It's a trusted cross-commodity price reporting agency in the agriculture, forest products, metals and mining, and new generation energy markets. By offering its customers insights for trading and planning, American Metal Market plays a significant role in shaping the metal markets of today and tomorrow.{{Categories}}
