Asian Metal-World Tungsten Forum 2010

In the end of 2008, financial crisis exploded worldwide. Demand for tungsten products dropped sharply along with falling prices and this culminated into a very difficult year for most market participants in the tungsten industry in 2009.
From November 2009, the raw material market started to warm up first; the rising price of tungsten concentrate and APT pushed the downstream market in the upward trend. In the beginning of 2010, tungsten market had a good start as international buyers started purchasing after a year-long de-stocking. However, has the difficult time really passed?
Asian Metal-World Tungsten Forum 2010 was to be held in Nanchang to discuss about the tungsten market. Here are the topics to be discussed in the summit: Chinese Tungsten Market Review and Outlook; Japanese tungsten demand and supply analysis; Analysis of tungsten export in 2009; Outlook for tungsten market; Marco Economic Analysis.

China’s restrict control of tungsten export dry up the global tungsten supply

In recent years, China has imposed export restriction on tungsten and largely purchased this kind of metal, stimulating the demand for tungsten and motivating efforts to search for tungsten ore. However, the entire process takes two or three years. In a word, new major supply source will not have appeared by 2013.

Considering the short supply of tungsten in the world market, on which those industries strongly depending such as scientific industries, their choices are very limited. It’s unrealistic for most companies to purchase a mining company as what Warren Buffett has done. Thus, cooperating with companies supplying tungsten except Chinese suppliers has become the only possibility. It’s the only way in the foreseeable future for there are so many industries relying on this kind of irreplaceable metal.

Three companies benefit from the rebound of the tungsten market

The panicky drop in the international price of gold and the lower price of copper, aluminum and other commodities has stressed the market. However, the price of the minor metal, tungsten, not affected by these drops, continued its upward trend. The quotation of tungsten of Pan-Asian Non-ferrous Metal Exchange has set a new high.

The rising price of tungsten has provided a good environment for companies. Xiamen Tungsten stated in its first-quarter performance forecast that the domestic and foreign demand has dramatically increased since March, 2013, gradually rising the sale price and the profitability.

There are three domestic listed companies covering the industrial chain of tungsten, they are Xiamen Tungsten, Hunan Non-ferrous Metals and Zhangyuan Tungsten.

Expansion of Tungsten Carbide Recycling Facility in U.S.

American National Carbide (ANC), a Texas based tungsten carbide supplier and machine tool manufacturer, has completed the expansion of its carbide scrap recycling facility.

The company said that following the upgrade, the facility now has capacity to process over 1,000,000 pounds (454 tons) of scrap carbide per year - making it one of the largest recyclers of scrap carbide in the world.

According to ANC, the new state-of-the-art equipment and major advancements in carbide recycling technology are the culmination of a two-year, multi-million dollar project.

The proprietary recycling process developed by ANC produces is claimed to produce no emissions or waste products and be capable of converting 100% of the scrap carbide back into usable raw material without any loss of integrity or quality in the material.

“This expansion was a key part of our push for sustainability with respect to tungsten carbide,” explained D. Greg Stroud, president of American National Carbide.

“By minimizing the presence of tungsten carbide in the waste stream and increasing recycling of this material, we are helping to offset any future effects of its consumption,” he added.

The tungsten market is in good times

Tungsten export market participants stated that although foreign demand doesn’t increase significantly, the export price of tungsten products remains strong, because of the rising of Chinese domestic prices.

A major tungsten exporter is optimistic about the tungsten market, “Tender cases in European market are increasing. Foreign consumers turn to directly purchase from Chinese suppliers when failing to purchase sufficient goods in Rotterdam.”

The quotation of Chinese domestic APT reaches to between 197,000 and 198,000 yuan, meanwhile, most exporters raise the export quotation to between 400 to 405 dollars per ton. The tight supply of tungsten concentrates leads to their rising tendency. Consequently, the export price of APT will rise recently.

China raise export quotas of tungsten to relieve the stress of American suppliers

The export quotas of four kinds of tungsten products in China are totaling 11,955 tons in the first half of 2010, increasing nearly 10 percent compared to those in 2009.

In spite of the significant increase in quotas, the price of tungsten remains high. A Western supplier said, “The pricing power is at the disposal of Chinese sellers. I think the price will raise further.” He thought the high price of tungsten was the reason for China to increase export quotas. “The price of tungsten kept at 200 dollars per ton last year. They won’t increase quotas as such if the price is not so high. They are well-prepared.”

Another factor affecting American buyers is the returning of DLA Supply Team. DLA has stopped participating in the market since May, 2010, worsening the tungsten supply situation. But it is predicted to resume sales of tungsten products as early as in February. DLA is prudent in its sale plans, “Selling inventory of goods can’t fundamentally meet goods demand. Strategic goods have been more and more important.”

2013 China Tungsten & Cemented Carbide Conference Will Be Held In Chengdu

Recent price setback of tungsten concentrate in 2012 has adversely affected the profitability and development of the entire tungsten industry. With the lower demand for cemented carbide, steel and other products, tungsten raw material prices have been squeezed, worsening the marking environment of enterprises. Thus, it is urgent that the tungsten industry should find a new way to develop actively yet prudently.

Given this, Ruidow Metal Net will invite people of various circles to meet in Chengdu on May 26th, 2013 to discuss the major problems and further development of this industry.
