A comparison on the steel production with regards to its actual demand and data regarding the employment pattern in the industry in 2010 are depicted in the given line graphs.
In general, when the actual steel production was higher than its requirement, the volume of workers dropped considerably during the year.
It is clear from the first chart that the steel production was significantly higher than the actual demand in January. When the demand was about 2000 million tonnes, the production was almost its double. The production rose by 1000 million in February, but slipped back to 4000 million tonnes in the very next month, and remained unchanged till July. During this period, the actual steel demand stood between 2000 and 3000 million tonnes, despite a lower demand in May (1500 million tonnes). After this, till November, both production and demand declined, and the disparity between these two remained at around 1500 million tonnes. There was almost no demand for steel in November, but it went over the total steel produced in December (over 2000 million tonnes).
Turning to the employee statistics, the figures were seen generally declining. Between January and February, this was around 5000000 to 5500000, whereas by December, it fell to 0.1 million, despite some fluctuations in between.
