Chinese Iron Ore Imports by Source

Iron Ore

Of the 75.5 Mt of iron ore China imported in October over 84% was sourced from Australia and Brazil, although both countries recorded year-on-year falls of approximately 1 Mt to 48.5 Mt and 15.3 Mt, respectively, according to China Customs. In contrast, there were small annual increases in cargoes from South Africa and Canada to 3.3 Mt and 1.0 Mt, respectively. October iron ore imports from West Africa rose slightly from September's near three-year low, of 0.7 Mt, but were still down 0.8 Mt year-on-year at 0.9 Mt.
