China’s Domestic Molybdenum Price - January 17, 2022

molybdenum crucible image At the beginning of the week, China’s domestic molybdenum price continued to be stable and strong in the last week. Under the influence of the shortage of spot supply of molybdenum concentrate and the generally high enthusiasm of steel companies to bid for ferromolybdenum, most intermediate smelters have a strong sense of reluctance to sell and keep prices high. The ferro molybdenum price is about 164,000 yuan/ton.

According to Chinatungsten Online, the main reason for the difficulty in increasing the spot supply of molybdenum concentrate is that the Spring Festival and the Winter Olympics are approaching, and environmental protection efforts have been strengthened. During the Spring Festival, normal production and operation, so purchase in advance.
