FACTBOX-Capacity of world's largest iron ore producers

 April 19 (Reuters) - Will the supply deficit pushing iron ore spot market prices to record highs above $175 a tonne .IO62-CNI=SI this year turn to glut in a few years?
 Current demand for 1.3 billion tonnes of iron ore produced annually suggests a deficit, according to official Australian government forecasts. But that deficit could vanish if iron ore output matches growth forecasts of 50 percent more ore by 2015.
 At the same time steel output is widely forecast to grow by only a third, to about 1.7 billion tonnes.
 The following is a list of the top 20 iron ore producers worldwide. World’s Largest Iron Ore Producers: 2010 COMPANY
