Abstract

The aim of this article is to present the directions of steel consumption in Poland, and to show the impact of economic conditions on this distribution. The study covered the period from 2006 to 2016. The following methods have been used in paper: descriptive, tabular, graphic and Pearson's linear correlation coefficient. The findings of the study indicate that only the consumption of long steel products was strongly linked to the economic situation, measured by the value of GDP, volume of demand and value of import. In the case of other product groups, such as flat steel products, cold-rolled steel pipes and profiles, there was no significant correlation with the market situation. Interestingly, no significant relationship was found between apparent consumption of finished steel products and industrial production. This means that steel, as a rule, was not a key element in these economy sectors, and their production was affected, to a greater extent, by other raw materials. Summarizing, the relationships between individual types of steel products and the economic situation should to be analyzed separately.
