Steel Market Developments


Steel Market Developments provides up-to-date information on global and regional steel markets. Reviewed and approved by the OECD Steel Committee, they are disseminated approximately twice a year to the public to allow policymakers, industry, media and academia to keep abreast of the main trends and recent developments.

The reports provide an overview of recent supply and demand developments and, when available, forecasts from publicly available sources. Topics of special interest are occasionally covered, including:

  • the financial situation of steelmaking companies
  • developments in steel-related raw material markets
  • steelmaking capacity trends
  • updates on specific regions that are important for the global steel market

These papers are reviewed and approved by the Steel Committee before release. All OECD Steel Market Developments reports produced since 2011 are available below.
