*** Significant decline in global steel production in 2020
Compared to February 2020, most regions reported a decline in crude steel production, led by North America (8.9% decrease), the European Union (7.1% decrease) and Africa (6.4% decrease). By early 2020, the steel industry had not yet been hit hard by the Corona crisis and had not welcomed it. For this reason, the data in this section has been lower than last year’s comparison.
*** Evaluate the steel production performance of China and South Korea
As for China, there are always surprises in the industrial market. China – the world’s largest steel producer – produced about 83 million tonnes in February 2021, up 10.9% from February 2020. Total crude steel production in South Korea grew by 1.2 percent year-on-year to about 5.5 million tons in February. This growth, along with the growth of Chinese steel production, can be assessed.
*** Strategic relationship between Japan and India steel industry
Production in India was 9.1 million tonnes, down 3.1%, while Japan fell 5.6% to 7.5 million tonnes. Indian steel and Japanese steel have a significant convergence with each other. This is because in 2020, significant trade agreements were signed in the steel sector of China and Japan, which led to the convergence of markets and steel industries.
