Global Aluminum Trade

AIM Feature:

ITA released its new Global Scrap Monitor (GSM) continuing ITA’s expansion upon its various datasets tracking global steel and aluminum supply chains. Interest in the trade of steel and aluminum scrap, as well as growing understanding of the critical nature of these supply chains, has prompted ITA to release the GSM to track aggregate trade flows of these materials. GSM provides interactive charts in a readily accessible format on three standard aggregate product categories, Aluminum Scrap, Pig Iron/ Direct Reduced Iron, and Steel Scrap based on 6-digit international harmonized tariff schedule classifications.
