Steel Production by Country

Steel, an alloy of iron and carbon, is what we use as a building block of modern society. Steel is used everywhere, in the construction of buildings, ships, aircraft, tanks, automobiles, bridges, and many more. Steel is easy to use, is 98% recyclable, and has been used by humans since we learned how to smith. 

The earliest use of steel was by medieval smiths in the 13th century A.D. when they discovered iron weapons would become harder, stronger, and more durable when carbon was introduced during the smithing process. The first use of steel was as a weapon of war, as armor, swords, guns, and spears spread throughout Europe and the world. However, like with many other things, the Chinese had been using steel for far longer, but it was European and western innovations that made it useful for more than simply weaponry. Nowadays, steel beams are used to reinforce skyscrapers and other constructions, and are combined with metals like chromium, nickel, and tungsten in the production of ships, airplanes, and electrical components. 

Despite the entire world relying on steel, there are only 64 countries that produce it, making it a highly sought-after commodity. China is currently the world’s largest producer of steel, producing over 100 million tonnes of steel per year. The steel production process can be quite damaging to the environment, however, as a lot of carbon is used. As a result, steel production accounts for 7% of the atmospheric increase in carbon worldwide.
