    In the 40 or so years to the beginning of the 20th century the steel then blossomed from only 13,000 tons in 1860 to 28 million tonnes which is a huge increase which most likely reflects the impetus given to this production by the Industrial Revolution. This Revolution ran from about 1760-1840 and included I believe the bessemer process of steel making as an innovation from this period.
