On July 30th, the Stainless Steel Branch of China Special Steel Enterprise Association released the statistics of China's stainless steel crude steel production in the first half of 2018. In the first half of 2018, the national stainless steel crude steel output was 13.639 million tons, an increase of 1,593,900 tons, an increase of 13.23%.

Among them, the output of chromium-nickel (300 series) stainless steel was 6,016,700 tons, an increase of 89,800 tons, an increase of 1.49%, and the share decreased by 5.18 percentage points to 44.77%; chromium-manganese (200 series) stainless steel (including The output of some products that did not meet international standards) was 4,765,700 tons, an increase of 1,102,200 tons, an increase of 30.37%, and the share increased by 4.59 percentage points to 34.94%; the output of chromium (400 series) stainless steel was 2,707,200 tons, an increase over the same period of last year. 376,600 tons, an increase of 16.06%, and its share increased by 0.48 percentage points to 19.85%. In addition, the output of duplex stainless steel in the first half of the year was 59,964 tons, an increase of 19,402 tons, an increase of 47.83%.



Since the General Administration of Customs has not released the import and export data for the second quarter of this year, it is estimated that the apparent consumption of stainless steel crude steel in the first half of the year was 11.2 million tons, an increase of 2,224,800 tons or 24.79%. According to analysis, the main reason for the significant changes in product mix and apparent consumption is the significant increase in imports.
