Steel production in Ukraine increased in January-July 2021

According to statistics from the association of Ukrainian metallurgists “Ukrmetallurgprom”, Ukraine produced about 12.7 million tons of crude steel in the first seven months of 2021, which is 7.4% more than in the same period last year. Overall steel production increased 6.6% year-on-year to about 11.4 million tonnes.

During this period, pig iron production amounted to about 12.7 million tons, which is 7.7% more than a year earlier. Pig iron production was supported by strong demand from China. When the US and Europe return to the market, pig iron production may grow even more.
