Raw steel production in August 2015

Raw steel production in Germany increased by 11 % in August 2015 year on year, for the third time running. This high increase is due to a base effect from August 2014. The latest production figures indicate a further basic moderate upward tendency. Over the entire year, raw steel production exceeds the year on year figure by 0.5 %. The increase in the production of hot-rolled steel products continues to be clearly above this.
