Molybdenum Concentrate Price - Feb. 23, 2022

Currently, the prices of molybdenum concentrate and ferro molybdenum are around 2,500 yuan/mtu and 170,000 yuan/ton respectively.

From the perspective of supply, first, although the Lantern Festival and the Winter Olympics have ended and the environmental protection policy has been slightly relaxed, it is still difficult to increase the capacity of molybdenum concentrate, mainly due to the low temperature and frequent rainy days, which increase the difficulty factor of molybdenum mining enterprises; second, the stabilization of international molybdenum prices and the large transportation costs lead to limited imports of domestic molybdenum raw materials.

From the demand side, most steel companies and end customers still have a certain amount of molybdenum product inventory, so the enthusiasm for entering the market for inquiries and purchases has been slightly reduced recently. However, in the long run, emerging markets have good development prospects and can significantly increase the amount of molybdenum chemical products.
