The segment saw Q2 product sales increase to 66 million tonnes (72.75 million net tons) due to higher demand, restocking by service centers and traders, and import restrictions in the European and American markets. Revenue of $400 million increased 26 percent from the previous quarter and 5 percent year-over-year due to higher sales volume and improved steel product prices.
