European Steel in Figures 2022
Downloads and links
European Steel in Figures 2022 is the fourteenth edition of the European Steel Association’s (EUROFER) statistical guide, which covers data up to 2021.
It is the first edition that takes fully into account the departure of the United Kingdom from the EU and its internal market. From now on, all aggregated data for the EU refer exclusively to EU27, and historical datasets have been adapted accordingly.
The numbers presented in the 2022 edition identify the main trends of the past year through data, and reflect both the new reality post Brexit and the consequences of the pandemic. In particular, they show the strong rebound experienced in the aftermath of restrictive COVID measures and the progressive slowdown of the recovery due to increasing supply chain disruptions, soaring energy prices and shortages of raw materials occurred in the second half of 2021.
We hope that our statistics will be of use for those working within and with the steel industry. We also hope that they can help guiding policymakers both at EU and national level in making the right choices when it comes to political decisions impacting the industry, such as climate, energy and trade policies.
We wish you a fruitful utilisation of European Steel in Figures 2022.

Brussels, 16 March 2023 – A successful EU industrial policy requires a value chain-based approach, with steel as an integral part of the Net-Zero Industry Act. To ensure that the EU remains competitive in the greatest transformation of the industry towards climate-neutrality, it is essential to adopt disruptive thinking and innovative measures to create a more attractive green investment environment whilst securing the EU’s strategic autonomy. The European Steel Association (EUROFER) details its comprehensive vision in a new policy paper covering all industrial policy fields relevant for a green, decarbonised and prospering European manufacturing industry, including energy and climate, environment and circularity, investment, trade, internal market and skills.
New global reality requires disruptive thinking and innovative measures
Brussels, 14 March 2023 – The revision of the Electricity Market Design (EMD) risks becoming another missed opportunity to secure cost-competitive fossil-free electricity and to introduce solutions providing swift relief to energy-intensive sectors exposed to global competition. It remains unclear how industrial energy consumers will be able to access the large quantities of renewable and low-carbon electricity needed for their decarbonisation in the coming years, says the European Steel Association following the publication of the European Commission’s reform proposal on the EMD.
