Time axis of stainless steel development in China

The development and progress of China’s stainless steel industry is relatively late. From the founding of the people’s Republic of China to the reform and opening up, the demand for stainless steel in China is mainly based on the cutting-edge use of industry and national defense. After the reform and opening up, the rapid development of the national economy and the significant improvement of people’s living standards have stimulated the demand for stainless steel. In the 21st century, China’s stainless steel industry has witnessed rapid growth. In 2019, China’s stainless steel output reached 29.4 million tons, an increase of 10.1% compared with 26.706 million tons in 2018. China’s stainless steel output accounted for 56.30% of the world. Today, let’s take a look at the development timeline of stainless steel in China.
