Global structural steel usage will continue to grow on an annualized rate of 5.5% through 2025. Fueling the growth are developed countries - including the United States, United Kingdom and Germany – that will continue to build residential and non-residential structures, such as schools, offices and hospitals.

Rising global demand for stainless products will continue in 2018, with the coming year expected to be brighter than most. During the past 35 years, the stainless growth rate has been more than double the compounded annual growth rate of carbon steel, with even larger gains made than in aluminum. Click to learn more.
The U.S. Treasury Department and U.S. Mint’s sudden suspension of the mutilated coin redemption program dealt a body blow to the global coin recycling sector, sowing uncertainty across the ranks and freezing millions of dollars’ worth of recycled coins throughout a complex supply chain. Join AMM nonferrous scrap reporter Brad MacAulay as he travels the world to capture the real story, brings attention and clarity to a largely overlooked market, and—in a unique twist—creates a framework to redeem the lost dynamism of the coin recycling industry.
Take a look at this infographic for more information on how stainless steel has been used in the past and the advantages of using it today and beyond.
Despite some mixed views, 2016 so far has been a better year for domestic steel than 2015, judging by where several leading indicators-including production, prices, shipments and trade issues-have moved or may be moving the sector.
Stainless steel is used in a wide variety of applications, is potentially 100 percent recyclable and has grown faster than most other materials, as this infographic featuring these and other aspects of the metal shows.
Steel job shops and fabricators have long understood the benefits of working with pickled and oiled sheets in gauges thinner than 1/2 inch. But the introduction of 3/4-inch pickled and oiled (P&O) sheets four years ago, and 1-inch pickled and oiled sheets in 2014 is introducing steel service center customers to the benefits of working with the thicker
gauge P&O sheets.
To harvest the more dependable wind resources at higher altitudes, and for greater energy output and efficiency, wind tower hub heights of 100 meters (328 feet) and higher are becoming the new standard, up from 80 meters (262.5 feet) only 15 years ago. Unlike traditional steels unable to scale to the taller hub height, low carbon structural steel containing Niobium offers a solution. Discover how steel can maintain its advantage over alternative wind tower materials by downloading this white paper from CBMM North America, Inc.
Since the enactment of Section 232 in March, there has been a flurry of activity and uncertainty regarding steel prices. Now is the time to reevaluate your price risk management strategies to protect your margins and earnings. This white paper explains four price risk management strategies along with the steps to take in order to determine which strategy is best for your company.
Economies, national securities, and cultures rely on safe, trustworthy infrastructures, which are being threatened by seismic, fire, and extreme-weather events. As a result, the global demand for better structural materials has intensified.
Find out in this industry white paper from CBMM North America, Inc.: How niobium enables steelmakers to benefit from this growing opportunity, how low-cost, niobium-containing steel provides structural materials with improved energy absorption, fracture toughness, and fatigue properties and why low carbon, Nb-microalloyed steel lowers overall production costs.
