The American Iron and Steel Institute, the primary source of statistical information on the North American steel industry, announced the release of its 2010 Annual Statistical Report. The 126-page book, the most comprehensive reference of its kind for the American steel industry, provides statistical data for the United States steel industry plus a variety of selected statistical data on the Canadian, Mexican and world steel industries. The report is the longest running statistical publication series in all of manufacturing, dating back to 1868. The ASR has been published without interruption since 1914.
The ASR has proven to be an indispensable reference tool for the industry, media, academia, steel analysts and others who are interested in tracking steel industry trends. The most popular charts, in terms of inquiries received by the Institute, include
Selected Statistical Highlights on shipments, apparent supply, imports, employment and raw steel data over a 10-year period; Selected Financial Highlights on income and cash flow data; shipments by products and markets over a 10-year period; raw steel production (state distribution and capability utilization); and imports and exports data.
The report is preceded by an executive summary that highlights recent and historical trends in the North American Steel Industry. The summary is comprised of 10 pages of charts and graphs on steel production, shipments, imports, demand and operating efficiency. Recent steel market trends in the U.S. and NAFTA region are illustrated.
