The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) is announcing the release of its 2017 Annual Statistical Report (ASR), which provides comprehensive data on the U.S. steel industry and select data on the North American steel industry as a whole.

“In 2017, total steel imports increased 15 percent, while finished steel imports rose 12 percent and garnered a 27 percent share of apparent steel supply,” AISI reported. “U.S. steel shipments were at 90.9 million net tons (NT), up five percent from the previous year, but were 2 percent lower than the most recent five-year average of 93 million net tons. The report also notes that U.S. raw steel production was 90 million net tons in 2017, a 4-percent increase from 2016. The construction and automotive industries continued to be the leading end-use markets for shipments of U.S. steel products.”

The AISI report provides statistical data for the U.S. steel industry and a variety of selected statistical data on the Canadian, Mexican and world steel industries. It also features extensive charts and graphs, including selected statistical highlights on shipments, apparent supply, imports, employment, and raw steel data over a 10-year period; selected financial highlights; shipments by products and markets over a 10-year period; raw steel production (including selected state-level production data) and capability utilization; and detailed imports and exports data.

A copy of the 2017 Annual Statistical Report can be purchased by visiting the Platts Steel Data and Analysis website or by calling (800) PLATTS-8.
