Indian demand remains a bright spot in major steel markets as domestic consumption is seen growing at a "high single digit" rate over the next 12-15 months, a senior executive at Moody's Investors Service said on Monday. India, the world's second-largest crude steel producer, posted 11.4% growth in finished steel consumption during April-October to 65.5 million tonnes. "India remains the bright spot because the underlying steel demand still remains quite solid," Kaustubh Chaubal, a senior vice president at Moody's, told Reuters in an interview.
