molybdenum crucible image China molybdenum market is relatively calm on February 8, 2022 after the holiday of Chinese Lunar New Year because many upstream and downstream enterprises in the industrial chain have not yet fully resumed normal operation.

From the perspective of supply, in addition to the fact that some molybdenum production enterprises have not resumed work in time just after the Spring Festival holiday, which is the reason why the current supply of molybdenum raw materials is difficult to increase.
