Downstream effects of steel tariffs: IBISWorld

Published March 22, 2018 by Mark Bodnar

I see that IBISWorld has published an analysis of the possible effects of a US steel & aluminum tariff on Canadian industries and consumers:  Trump Tariff to Hit Consumers, Canadian Steel and Construction.

As I'm sure you could guess, such tariffs are expected to touch on many industries.  Here are direct links to IBISWorld reports on some of the industries mentioned in their analysis.

Note: Where provided, click on the flags to get to the US or Canadian versions of each industry report.
