U.S. Production Production for the week of March 19, 2010, registered 1.720 million tons, at a capacity utilization rate of 71.1% (Figure 1). It is anticipated that capacity utilization will peak in the 7585% range on the strength of modest service center and end-user restocking in advance of expected price increases, but should fall back to 70% later in the year. Monthly production for January was 6.881 million tons, at a 71.1% capacity utilization rate (Figure 2).
