WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) today announced the release of its 2014 Annual Statistical Report (ASR). The 2014 ASR shows that U.S. steel production, shipments and imports all increased in 2014 over 2013. Both total and finished steel imports increased to near record levels as imports garnered a record 28 percent share of apparent steel supply. U.S. steel shipments were at 98 million net tons, a three percent increase from the previous year and a six percent increase from the most recent five-year average of 93 million net tons. The report also notes that U. S. raw steel production was 97 million net tons in 2014, a one percent increase over 2013. Construction and automotive continue to be the largest markets for steel.

The AISI report is the most comprehensive reference of its kind for the American steel industry, providing statistical data for the U.S. steel industry and a variety of selected statistical data on the Canadian, Mexican and world steel industries. It features extensive charts and graphs, including: 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 also includes an executive summary that highlights recent and historical trends in the North American steel industry.

Thomas J. Gibson, president and CEO of AISI, said “The AISI Annual Statistical Report is the gold-standard on data for industry partners, media and analysts seeking comprehensive statistical information about the steel industry. With over 16 pages of charts and graphs in the executive summary alone, it serves as an essential reference for anyone following steel data and trends. We are proud to have compiled this comprehensive set of critical information, and encourage those interested in the best set of industry information to purchase the report.”
