Steel use by end market
Markets for our steel range from construction to automotive to mining and energy to a variety of industrial and commercial uses. Because a high percentage of the steel we make is sold through steel service centers or distributors, and because these intermediaries do not report to us the details of their sales to customers, we cannot say with certainty where all our steel is used. The chart below represents our best intelligence about the markets we serve, our customers and the industries they operate in, and the requirements for specific products we make for our customers’ applications.
