China topped the list of crude steel producers in the sixth month of 2021, with an output of 93.9 million tons, while Iran stood at 10th place.

India, Japan, the United States, Russia, South Korea, Germany, Turkey and Brazil with 9.4 million tons, 8.1 million tons, 7.1 million tons, 6.4 million tons, six million tons, 3.4 million, 3.3 million tons and 3.1 million tons, respectively, were listed in second to ninth places, the report said.

Iran produced over 29 million tons of crude steel in 2020, according to figures released by WSA in January.

Based on the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Vision Plan, the country’s total steel production capacity is to hit 55 million tons a year by 2025, with export figures expected to reach 10-15 million tons.
