Produced in a great power's capital from an equal blend of coal and iron (or in a village after suitable development of your industry), steel is essential, along with equal amounts of lumber, for
expanding buildings and for building transport capacity (freight cars).
After some advances in technology, you will find that some ships need steel in their construction.
Any steel not required for the above processes can be turned into arms or hardware in the metalworks. Arms are essential for warfare, but hardware is good only for selling to minor nations.
