At the beginning of the week, many molybdenum product prices were in a stalemate due to the lower than expected steel bidding price. However, due to the tight supply of molybdenum concentrates near the weekend, the molybdenum price rose sharply, which also caused the industry to worry about the market outlook.

In the molybdenum concentrate market, under the combined influence of the high willingness of downstream users to inquire and purchase and the low stock of raw materials, holders are more aware of price increases. The current price of molybdenum concentrate has exceeded 2,300 yuan/mtu. 

In the ferromolybdenum market, product prices have risen passively. In order to avoid the risk of inversion, the quotations of intermediate smelting companies have been adjusted upwards in line with the increase in the price of molybdenum concentrates. However, some steel companies postpone their procurement plans, resulting in slower growth in orders; in the molybdenum chemicals and its products market, the fundamentals of supply and demand are general. Although the supplier's quotations have been raised due to the strong bullish sentiment in the upstream market, since many end customers have certain inventory, the transaction remains to be seen.

News: From January to September 2021, global stainless steel crude steel production increased by approximately 16.9% year-on-year to 42.98 million tons. From a regional perspective, Europe increased by about 17.9% to 5.413 million tons, the United States increased by about 16.1% to 1.83 million tons, and China increased by about 8.8% to 23.831 million tons.
