Global Steel Production Up 7% In January

Global production of raw steel totaled 136.5 million metric tons during January 2017, a 1.75% rise from the previous month's total and a 7.0% increase over the January 2016 total. The figures are based on some noteworthy estimates, according to the World Steel Association, including estimated output of 67.2 million metric tons from China, which represents an increase of 2.7% over the January 2016 result.

China produces about half of the world's raw steel, but that industry is undergoing a dramatic, centralized effort to retire outdated and excess capacity and consolidate the number of holding companies.

Global Steel Production Up 7% In January

The World Steel Assn. tracks monthly raw-steel output and capacity utilization rates for 67 countries — now, including Vietnamese production for the first time. Raw (or crude) steel is the output of basic oxygen furnaces and electric arc furnaces that is cast into semi-finished products, such as slabs, blooms, or billets. World Steel reports tonnage and capacity utilization data for carbon and carbon alloy steel in 66 countries; data for production of stainless and specialty alloy steels are not included.
