Molybdenum Concentrate Price - June 7, 2023

China’s domestic molybdenum market remains stable mainly due to the fact that current suppliers are not in a hurry to ship goods and buyers basically maintain rigid demand. 

At present, the prices of molybdenum concentrate and ferro molybdenum are firm at around 3,830 yuan/ton Mo and 255,000 yuan/ton respectively. Recently, the steel companies that entered the bidding for ferromolybdenum include Shandong Juneng 20 tons (tender price 250,000 yuan/ton), Dalian Special Steel, Posco (Zhangjiagang) Stainless Steel, Baosteel (Meishan Base), Shouguang Juneng Special Steel, Shougang shares, Fushun Special Steel, etc.
