SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) reported that steel import permit applications for the month of November this year totalled 2.113 million net tons. The figures, based on Steel Import Monitoring and Analysis (SIMA) by the U.S Commerce Department, suggest 9.6% dip from permit tons of 2.336 million net tons recorded in the prior month.

The import permit tonnage for finished steel totalled 1.891 million net tons in November this year, significantly down by 3.9%, compared to final imports total of 1.968 million net tons in October. The finished steel import market share was estimated at 23% during the month and at 24% during the year-to-date period, said AISI.
