The United States
Steel supply increased in the US due to a growth in domestic production and more imports from Section 232-exempt countries, Irepas noted.
The United States produced 87.9 million tonnes of crude steel in 2019, 1.50% more than 86.6 million tonnes produced in 2018 according to World Steel Association. This was up from 81.6 million tonnes in 2017
The US imposed Section 232 duties in March 23, 2018
, comprising 25% import taxes for all steel imports into the country and 10% for aluminum imports.
Steel shipments from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico and South Korea to the US are exempt from the duties
