It should be noted that the International Iron and Steel Institute (IISI) reports and analyzes its rankings in terms of steel volumes. There are many arguments suggesting that a better ranking should be based on steel revenues - probably based in US dollarsFact|date=July 2008. This can either be obtained by studying the company financials, or by estimating the average selling price per tonne of steel shipped (based on product mix) multiplied by the shipped tonnes in that year.

Integer Research Ltd., a London based company, claims to produce a ranking based on steel revenuesFact|date=July 2008. It is not clear how this compares to a ranking based on steel volumes, but is likely to represent the value added elements in the steel making process.
