Global – The World Steel Association (WSA) has published its 2016 Steel Statistical Yearbook which presents a cross-section of steel industry statistics for the years 2006 to 2015, including trade of scrap.

Its content also includes: crude steel production by country and process; steel production by product; steel trade by product; apparent steel use and apparent steel use per capita by country; and also production and trade of pig iron, directly reduced iron and iron ore.
