The OECD Secretariat compiles steelmaking capacity data using a wide range of publicly available and commercial data sources. These data sources include government sources, commercial capacity databases, specialised media reports, and company information. The data are reviewed periodically by the OECD Steel Committee.

The data refer to maximum theoretical equipment capacity. This definition does not take into account yield losses, maintenance and other factors affecting the productivity of installed steelmaking equipment. Therefore, these steelmaking capacity figures provided should neither be regarded as effective capacity nor as production. Annual capacity data figures reflect all existing steelmaking capacity at the end of a calendar year.

Steelmaking capacityAbstract

Excess capacity is one of the main challenges facing the global steel sector. The OECD Steelmaking Capacity database contains data on crude steelmaking capacity by economy and provides researchers and policymakers with an important tool for analysing steel capacity developments.
