IABR - Instituto Aço Brasil prepares annual assessments of apparent consumption of steel products (domestic sales + exports) and distribution per consuming sector.
Due to the lack of data on constructed square footage in Brazil, CBCA has developed, with the support of structure engineers, a methodology to estimate the shares of concrete and steel construction in the country, based on apparent consumption of flat and long steel products destined for civil construction.
This methodology may not be considered accurate nor reflects actual concrete and steel construction totals, though it allows the identification of relative market share results.
The results are as follows:
