The paper discusses the present and future development of world crude steel production and consequent iron ore demand. As western steel production continues to suffer uncertain development, the author predicts that developing countries such as China and North Korea will experience significant growth rates. This increase in steel production will bring about an increased demand for seaborne iron ore. The author questions whether, by 1990, the import requirements for seaborne iron ore can be met. The discussion includes tables and charts illustrating production and demand forecasts.
