The decline in imports at a lower level than exports was mainly due to the extraordinary increases in flats and semis imports from Russia, China, South Korea, Indonesia, Japan, Belgium and Taiwan.

The ratio of exports to imports, which was 84.42% in the first month of 2022, decreased to 55.37% in 2023.

The largest share in our scrap imports, which decreased by 46% in the first month of 2023, was from the EU, which decreased by 25.7 percent compared to the same period of the previous year. While there was a decrease in scrap imports from EU, UK, CIS and North Africa regions, an increase was observed in scrap imports from the Middle East and Gulf region.

State-supported and dumped imports from the Far East and Gulf countries resulted in a 17.6% decline in production and a 42.2% decline in exports in January. In order to prevent the further deepening of the decline in production and exports, which destroys the sector, it is vital to continue the process of reviewing energy prices in parallel with the world markets and to prevent state-sponsored dumped imports.
