Brass Mill Imports Lag 2015 Pace

U.S. imports of brass mill products decreased in March compared with the same month in 2015, reports the Copper and Brass Fabricators Council in Washington. March imports totaled 40.1 million pounds, a decline of 17 percent from the same period last year.

As was the case in February, U.S. government export data appears to have included products misidentified as brass mill material in its totals. The CBFC believes approximately 17.5 million pounds of the reported 39.3 million pounds of exports have been misclassified. Excluding those, exports would have declined slightly during the month.

For the year to date, imports of 107.9 million pounds are down 12 percent. The year-to-date export figure remains in dispute.

Brass mill imports from Germany in March totaled 10.8 million pounds, followed by Mexico at 5.0 million pounds, South Korea at 4.8 million pounds, Canada at 3.7 million pounds, and Peru at 2.3 million pounds.

Imports of all sheet, strip, plate and foil products totaled 14.6 million pounds, while exports of those products totaled 8.1 million pounds. Imports of all pipe and tube products totaled 14.1 million pounds, while pipe and tube exports totaled 4.3 million pounds. Imports of all profiles, rods and bars totaled 8.3 million pounds, while exports totaled 24.7 million pounds.
