ISSB: our history
More than 40 years of experience in steel statistics
ISSB is a central part of the steel industry as a leading supplier of global trade data since 1979. We provide high quality data and expert insight into the global metals markets.

The origins of ISSB's data collection: a long history of collaboration with the steel sector
We have lived and breathed statistics on the metals industry since 1979.  Prior to the 1988 privatisation, the ISSB team was a core part of the British Steel Corporation's statistics department. We are now known as ISSB (International Steel Statistics Bureau), and the statistics department has transformed into an independent body that serves the metals, steel, financial and business sectors today.

ISSB builds tailored data reports with decades of steel and metals knowledge for you.

ISSB has continued to grow its offer and wealth of experience, and we now provide huge swathes of critical data to our clients. Our ISSB Trade Enquiry System gives clients the latest import and export tonnes and prices back to 2019, from 130 countries.

The extensive online database offers accurate and up to date statistical information for 130 countries at 6-, 8- and 10-digit tariff code level, 78 for which we have data back to the 1980s. We also offer monthly bespoke reports, and quarterly market updates relevant to the sector, and everything in between.

Whatever your metals import and export data related requirements, ISSB is here to work with you and add value to your business.
