World Crude Steel Production

Volume of crude steel production in China increased to 683 million metric tonnes in 2011, which was almost half of all crude steel produced in the world. The other largest producers (Japan, United States, India, Russia and South Korea) taken together, in 2011 produced 403 million metric tonnes of crude steel, which is equal to 21% of world production. During 2000-2011 production of crude still in China grew more than 6 times. Annual growth during last eleven years was about 18%.

Per capita steel use in China reached 445 kg of crude steel equivalent per capita in 2010, which is equal to the level of developed countries. It means that in mid-term run crude steel production in China will likely decelerate.
