What is the Iron & Steel Manufacturing Industry?

Companies in this industry manufacture pig iron, steel and ferroalloys. Pig iron is often manufactured in a blast furnace or via newer direct-reduction methods. Steel may be manufactured in basic oxygen furnaces (newly made steel) or in electric arc furnaces (recycled steel). This industry also includes operators that manufacture basic steel shapes, such as bars, plates, rods, sheets, strips and wire or form pipes and tubes from steel they have produced themselves.
