Downstream no es exactamente distribución (es decir, pasar del fabricante hasta el cliente final en etapas sucesivas), sino que agrega etapas sucesivas de elaboración.

producción y distribución


Explanation:
Watch out!

There is more to it than just marketing:

Downstream
The oil industry term used to refer to all petroleum activities from the processing of refining crude oil into petroleum products to the distribution, marketing, and shipping of the products. The opposite of downstream is upstream .

Upstream
The processes of exploring for oil; developing oil fields; and producing oil from the oil fields. The opposite of upstream is downstream.

www.mbendi.co.za/mbendigl.htm.

Downstream (upstream)

In a sequence of processes which comprise the production of a good or service, a ‘DOWNSTREAM’ process or workstation is ONE THAT IS LATER IN THE SEQUENCE; whereas ‘UPSTREAM’ indicates an EARLIER PROCESS IN THE SEQUENCE. In an automobile plant, if part of the sequence of processes is Frame assembly, Paint, and Trim… then Trim is downstream from Paint, and Frame is upstream from it.

www.interdynamics.com/glossary.htm

Upstream/Downstream
The term upstream refers to all hydrocarbon exploration and production activities. The term downstream includes all activities inherent to the oil sector that are downstream of exploration and production activities.

www.eni.it/english/notizie/mediateca/glossario_eni.html

Has two operating sectors: upstream and downstream. Upstream sector explores for, develops, produces and markets crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids. Downstream sector refines crude oil and distributes and markets petroleum products.

....which are DOWNSTREAM STEEL PRODUCERS OF PRODUCTS such as cold rolled strip, pipe and tube, and coated sheet.

Hope this helps.

productos de acero terminados


Explanation:
Downstream steel refers to steel products that are ready to be used by an end user outside of the steel industry: stuff like wire, reinforcing bar, steel roofing sheets, coated products, etc.

On the other hand, something like steel slab (planchón)or billet (palanquilla) is produced only so that it can be transformed into one of the other products. These are known as productos semiterminados (at least in Mexico)

"transformados de acero"

TwoToTango explanation is quite good.
I am not adding new value with mine.
Good job, TwoToTango!

Just only the word "transformados" is also used in the industry language to refer to products processed from the basic raw material. In the case of steel, this would be laminated or milled products, such as plate, bar, wire, etc. The downstream side refers to the stocking and distribution of these items that will be further elaborated into final consumer products.

"Transformados" is the typical word, and is a good alternative to "elaborados". Both words relate to the added value or work effected as a result of a process.
