Mining companies would rather store the raw materials at warehouses than sell to the market at current prices. It is difficult to source tungsten concentrates in the market. Offer from tungsten ore rise to $11,764.7/t. APT plants also are stuck in an awkward situation. They can neither purchase cheap concentrates nor sell APT at higher prices. Thus, they prefer to store their products in warehouses, expecting the market to move up in late May or June when the Covid-19 pandemic in overseas markets might be brought under control.
