1. Market Highlights

In April, as the pandemic spread in the international market, some foreign molybdenum suppliers halted production to prevent and control COVID-19 and the supply of overseas molybdenum oxide decreased. Besides, large molybdenum mines in China suspended production, so overseas molybdenum oxide suppliers held back from selling and prices for the material increased.Asian Metal Copyright Market Highlights In April, as the pandemic spread in the international market, some foreign molybdenum suppliers halted production to prevent and control COVID-19 and the supply of overseas molybdenum oxide decreased.Asian Metal Copyright In late March, a large Heilongjiang-based mine suspended production due to the leak of tailing ponds and cannot decide when to resume production, which caused the decline of molybdenum concentrate supply in China.Asian Metal Copyright As downstream molybdenum deep-processing industry kept low operating rates with dim demand, consumers only made purchases based on orders and prices for molybdenum powder were relatively stable.Asian Metal Copyright Chinese molybdenum concentrate suppliers were apparent to hold back from selling.Asian Metal Copyright Steel mills invited bids to purchase about 11,000t of ferromolybdenum in China in April.Asian Metal Copyright Prices for molybdenum concentrate moved up in late April.Asian Metal Copyright As the volume was high, the supply of spot ferromolybdenum tightened.Asian Metal Copyright Steel mills invited bids to purchase about 11,000t of ferromolybdenum in China in April.Asian Metal Copyright Steel mills invited bids to purchase about 11,000t of ferromolybdenum in China in April.Asian Metal Copyright As the volume was high, the supply of spot ferromolybdenum tightened.Asian Metal Copyright In late March, a large Heilongjiang-based mine suspended production due to the leak of tailing ponds and cannot decide when to resume production, which caused the decline of molybdenum concentrate supply in China.Asian Metal Copyright At the same time, prices for raw material molybdenum concentrate increased, so ferromolybdenum prices rose accordingly.Asian Metal Copyright As the volume was high, the supply of spot ferromolybdenum tightened.Asian Metal Copyright Supported by the increase of molybdenum concentrate production cost, although downstream molybdenum chemical industry saw weak demand, suppliers of ammonium molybdate, high-purity molybdenum oxide and sodium molybdate raised their selling prices accordingly.Asian Metal Copyright Supported by the increase of molybdenum concentrate production cost, although downstream molybdenum chemical industry saw weak demand, suppliers of ammonium molybdate, high-purity molybdenum oxide and sodium molybdate raised their selling prices accordingly.Asian Metal Copyright As downstream molybdenum deep-processing industry kept low operating rates with dim demand, consumers only made purchases based on orders and prices for molybdenum powder were relatively stable.Asian Metal Copyright Prices for molybdenum concentrate moved up in late April.Asian Metal Copyright Prices for molybdenum bar edged down but prices for molybdenum wire and molybdenum rod maintained stable due to steady demand.
