As world economy keeps recovering after financial crisis, the demand for steel products increases gradually. The output of Chinese crude steel hits 628 million tons in 2010, up by 10.7% compared with that of 2009. As the downstream industry of steel, ferroalloys have benefited from the output increase of steel. In the first half of 2010, ferroalloys industry moves steadily, with stable production and firm price. In the second half of 2010, Chinese government strengthens the policy of energy saving and emission reduction, and ferroalloys enterprises have to halt their production due to the lack of power, therefore ferroalloys prices begin soaring after a short-term downturn in July and August. However, the demand from downstream industries keeps sluggish, resulting in ferroalloys prices beginning moving down since October, and ferroalloys market generally kept slow by the end of 2010. Entering into 2011, there are many uncertain factors that affect ferroalloys industry:
Molybdenum: as a major producer of molybdenum, China plays an important role in the world. Will China change the policies on export and exploration next year and what impact will China bring to the whole molybdenum market? Will the supply of the material tighten in next 5 years?
Vanadium: What are new techniques to reduce production costs in vanadium industry? What's the solution for vanadium smelters in difficulties? What are opportunities and challenges for vanadium products during the updating of steel products?
Ferrotitanium: Chinese ferrotitanium market is still sluggish and the volume for tenders from steel mills is less than it was in the past few years. So how can the market become strong in 2011? International ferrotitanium price is still dominated by that of Russian materials, then, how can other countries develop ferrotitanium business under the heavy pressure this year?
Ferrotungsten: Domestic high-speed steel industry improved in the end of 2010, but the supply of ferrotungsten is superfluous to the demand. Raw material price keeps increasing and the weak export market results in the high export duty. Can Chinese ferrotungsten producers find a way to survive and how to deal with these problems in 2011?
