Chinese Tungsten Prices Experienced Minor Adjustments in Early September 2023

Analysis of latest tungsten market from Chinatungsten Online

Chinese tungsten prices have seen minor adjustments in the week ended on Friday, September 8, 2023 with a stable yet slightly weaker trend. This is primarily due to the relatively subdued atmosphere on the demand side. 

Additionally, the momentum from a new round of guide prices from major tungsten enterprises is limited. Consequently, the tungsten market sentiment remains unstable, with negotiators showing some flexibility, but with limited room for support on the raw material side.

As of September 8, 2023, tungsten concentrate price was quoted at $17,285.7/ton; APT price was quoted at $292.2/mtu; tungsten powder price was quoted at $39.1/kg; 70% ferro tungsten price was quoted at $25,000.0/ton; cobalt powder price was quoted at $34.7/kg.
