Consumo de Aço no Brasil: um modelo baseado na técnica da intensidade do uso


  • Fernando Nascimento de Oliveira
  • Luiz Paulo Vervloet Sollero


This paper studies steel consumption in Brazil, based on the model of intensity of use, that is, steel consumption per monetary unit of the economy, bringing information that is intended to help understanding the future behavior of steel consumption in the country. Our empirical results indicate that increase in the intensity of use of steel was the main cause of increased steel consumption in the last decade, but should not reach internationally high levels on the foreseeable future
