China’s steel is one of the most sought after in the world and China is the world’s leading producer. The metals industry is very important to consider if you want to import Chinese steel.
Steel is a mixture of iron and a small percentage of carbon, no more than 1.075%, which results in improved physical and chemical properties. In the market there are many types of steels and alloys to obtain different characteristics and properties such as mechanical resistance, wear, hardness, toughness, weldability and other properties so that the material can be adapted to the different industries in the market to manufacture pipes, profiles, tools, household appliances, structures, industrial parts, industrial supplies and automotive parts.
Like all metals, steels has different finishes, treatments and finishes depending on the use and where it is used, such as stainless steel, corten steel, galvanized steel, rebar and others. In terms of shape, the market offers flat products such as steel sheets and coils or steel coils, as well as long products such as flat bars, bars and rods, perforated bars, wires, angles and profiles, round pipes, pipes with ISO measurements, square pipes and rectangular pipes.
The standardization and normalization of steels is defined by the AISI (American Iron and Steels Institute), ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials), DIN (Deutsches Institut fur Normung) and ISO (International Organization for Standardization), BSI (British Standards Institution), NTP (Norma Técnica Peruana), JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard), SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) and UNE (Una Norma Española) standards. The different grades in Europe that can be marketed and manufactured are: S235JR, S235J0, S235J2, S275JR, S275J0, S275J2, S355JR, S355J0, S355J2, S355K2, S275N, S275NL, S355N, S355NL, S420N, S420NL, S460N, S460NL, S275M, S355M, S420M, S460M, S275ML, S355ML, S420ML, S460ML, S460ML, S460Q, S460QL, S460QL1
We all know that this metal is consumed for industrial manufacturing, machining, construction and manufacturing and has a multitude of applications and uses, so factories around the world contact us to import. The demand and consumption of your country depends on the economic growth, the degree of industrialization and the manufacturing capacity of the country, therefore developed and semi-developed countries have higher steel consumption than developing countries.
Many sectors and industries depend on Chinese steel and any variation in its production or international demand translates into a variation in the price of steel in China, so it can affect the entire metal industry, parts manufacturing, mechanics, machinery, industrial facilities, manufacturing, metal structures, construction and related sectors. The metal industry has suffered serious uncertainties caused by trade wars between countries and global protectionist measures cause steel tariffs to rise or fall, depending on the economic climate between the different world powers, which causes an increase or decrease in steel purchases in China by importers and manufacturers.
If you are interested in buying in China from companies and importing from China, contact us, we can help you.
The world steel production in 2019 was 1,864 million tons of crude steel worldwide and the main producing countries in the world are:
- China. China’s production is 1,053 million tons.
- India. India’s production is approximately 10% with 99 million tons. (t.)
- Japan. Japan’s production is 83 million tons.
- Russia. Russia’s production is 73 million tons.
- USA. USA production is 72 million t..
- South Korea with a production of 67 million t.
- Turkey with a production of 35 million t.
- Germany with a production of 35 million tons.
- Brazil with a production of 31 million tons.
- Iran with a production of 29 million tons.
In recent years, the world steel sector has had relevant changes in the pattern of foreign trade and in the import of steel from China and India.
Due to import from China and India, customs and regulatory bodies of countries and governments are requesting permits, licenses and other paperwork depending on each importing country. Therefore, if an importer, wholesaler, distributor, trader, factory or manufacturer wants to import steel, you have to know what are the necessary requirements and documents needed to import steel for your country, that is, you have to know how the import procedure works to import steel products without problems.
China steel production
China’s crude steel production is 1,053 million tons, making China the world’s largest metals producer with more than 50% of the world’s production. According to various reports, steel exports have increased for the third consecutive month in November 2020 due to a rebound in demand in foreign countries and steel prices. At present, China’s steel industry has excess metals and iron production capacity and is closing and merging steel plants in Hebei province to adapt to new technologies and the country’s new growth plan.
China steel exports
Exports of rolled steels and by-products processed and manufactured with this raw material are mainly destined for the following markets:
- United States USA and Canada
- In Europe, Chinese exports are destined for Germany, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Italy, France, Belgium, Poland and Spain, in order of import volume.
- In the case of Latin America, the main importing countries by import volume are Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, Dominican Republic, Guatemala and Costa Rica. Steel imports from China in these countries are mainly rolled products such as long steel, flat and seamless pipes and other derivatives.
- In the case of Africa, the main importing countries are Nigeria, Egypt, South Africa, Algeria, Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania and Morocco.
Stainless steel, corten, galvanized, rebar
Stainless, corten, galvanized and rebar, among others, have a multitude of applications, from the manufacture of structures, industrial plants, industrial parts, industrial supplies, reinforcement or rebar for reinforced concrete in the construction of buildings, manufacturing and decorative elements. Rebars or corrugated iron are rolled steel designed to form the rebars of the structural elements of reinforced concrete buildings.
Rolled steels are the products obtained after working large cast ingots, which during the rolling process are heated to allow deformation and adequate stretching to obtain the profile with the appropriate measures and dimensions to obtain the commercial sections that buyers and importers in China need to purchase for their manufacture.
In each market, rolled steels have different dimensions and characteristics, but the main ones are:
- structural angles L
- T profiles
- round bars
- flat bars
- rebar or corrugated iron: 6-50 mm diameter bars and coils.
- H beams (H beams are those beams whose section is H-shaped and have different variants such as IPN sections, HE section and IPE section)
- square bars
- hexagonal bars.
- pipes and tubes
China steel price
The China steel price is constantly varying depending on the type of alloy, domestic demand, importers and buyers, the production of Chinese steel companies and metals stocks, so please contact us and ask for prices. We manage the whole supply chain to import from China to your country.
China steel tariffs
Every importer, manufacturer or company knows that each country has its own tariffs, taxes and fees that must be paid in customs for each product that is imported from the country from which the import is made. In addition, due to trade wars between countries, you have to see if there are anti-dumping laws for the types of steels you want to import into your country.
In the case of steel products, it is necessary to take into account the type of steel, the finishes and finishes, coatings and other aspects that in international trade are not a restriction, but rather rules and criteria for importing steel products in general and that must be complied with import documents depending on the requirements and customs requirements in each country.
