Molybdenum Powder Price - May 16, 2022

At the beginning of the week, China’s ferro molybdenum, ammonium molybdate and molybdenum powder prices remain unchanged as the negotiation consistency between buyers and sellers is not very high under the influence of many uncertain factors.

According to Chinatungsten Online, the main factors affecting the popularity of the molybdenum market are: first, the quantity and price of ferro-molybdenum tendered by steel companies. Due to the low price of steel tenders, it is difficult to increase the price of ferro-molybdenum; second, the epidemic situation in Shanghai, Guangzhou and other places has gradually stabilized, the slow recovery of port traffic capacity, coupled with the devaluation of the RMB, is more conducive to the warming of the molybdenum export market.

In terms of news: data from China Iron and Steel Association showed that in early May, the social inventory of 5 major types of steel in 21 cities was 12.45 million tons, down 2.0% from the previous month, up 58.0% from the beginning of the year, and down 2.0% from the same period last year. In terms of regions, South China decreased by 5.3% month-on-month, Northeast China decreased by 11.0%, Northwest China decreased by 2.8%, East China decreased by 0.6%, North China decreased by 0.8%, Southwest China increased by 4.7%, and Central China increased by 0.7%.
