According to data compiled by SteelRadar from the Turkish Statistical Institute ( TUIK), September imports of hot rolled coil (HRC) increased by 12.5% yoy and decreased by 3.5% compared to August to 392,650 tons.

The lowest HRC imports were recorded in April with 391,023 tons, while the highest was 698,455 tons in May. September imports were recorded as the lowest level in the last 5 months.

Considering the total import figure for January-September 2022-2023, the total import figure, which was 3,810,178 tons in 2022, increased by 8.46% to 4,132,449 tons in the 9-month period of 2023.
