European Steel in Figures 2021

European Steel in Figures 2021 is EUROFER's statistical handbook, laying out in an easy-to-use format the key statistics and data about the performance and footprint of one of Europe's most important strategic sectors.

European Steel in Figures 2021

European Steel in Figures 2020 is the European Steel Association’s (EUROFER) statistical guide. It shows a sector that has experienced a challenging year in 2020, with employment levels having fallen and demand collapsing, largely as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. In 2020, imports fell further, continuing the trend seen in 2019 but again, largely due to the drop in domestic demand brought on by the pandemic. 

This new European Steel in Figures 2021 guide updates the trade map, showing imports and exports from the EU in an easy-to-understand way, breaking down previously hard to read figures. Additionally, the sustainability section of the guide has been updated with the latest 2020 data, now including refreshed information on slag production by the steel industry and its use by other downstream sectors.

All these statistics help give an overview of the European steel industry today. Awareness of the employment, production, demand and trade challenges that face the sector ensure a greater understanding of our strategically important sector. With this in mind, I hope you enjoy using European Steel in Figures 2021.
