As an important industry to supply raw materials, Chinese steel industry remains high growth momentum in GDP duringg this period. In the global steel industry, the rising of Chinese steel industry is thought to be a threat to other countries in the world, especially for the counter part of Korea and Japan. But research on the competence of Sino-South Korean steel industry is not widely and so far there is no concrete study for the whole industry. Therefore, this study uses trade statistics of steel industry of UN COMTRADE to deduce the influence on Chinese steel industry from China’s view based on the analysis on the change of characteristics and the competitiveness of China and South Korea.
