Imports History

On a monthly basis Steel Market Update analyzes import data into the United States and segregates the various types of steels. We capture import statistics on total steel products, semi-finished steel , OCTG, hot-rolled steel, cold-rolled steel, galvanized steel, and other metallic coated (Galvalume & aluminized) steel. Our trade figures are represented in net tons (short tons) which are equal to 2,000 pounds. This data is available for our Executive and Premium members.

Our monthly steel import data is available from June 2009 to current. This data is sourced from the US Department of Commerce, with detailed datasets available here on the US International Trade Administration website.
