Tungsten market recovered fast in 2010 after a weak year of 2009. Chinese domestic tungsten concentrate price rose by more than 60% in the whole year and up by over 20% in November, pushing prices of all downstream products higher. In the second half of the year, China reduced the export quota for rare earth, drawing focus on the scarce strategic metals, such as rare earth, tungsten, antimony and others. Will tungsten market continue the upward trend in 2011?

Demand of tungsten products in both Chinese domestic and overseas market was strong in 2010 that many manufacturers needed to run with full production capacity to meet customers’ demand. Meanwhile, prices of raw materials skyrocketed, resulting in the manufacturers cautiously accepting orders. In 2011, most foreign consumers have built certain level of stocks, so demand may not be as much as that in the previous year. Will Chinese tungsten mines produce according to quotas? Can Chinese consumption give enough support to the price? Supply and demand are always the most important factors in free market.

Tungsten market in China corrected itself in the beginning of December 2010 for short time and started rising again in the beginning of 2011. Market participants are confident in future tungsten market. How to keep the upwards market trend after economic recovery? How can manufacturers help each other to develop?

The export quota in 2011 includes foreign invested company for the first time, and the quota volume in total is not changed much compared to the previous year, but for each products varies. Export duty in 2011 remains the same with potential reduction of export tax rebate and increasing of export duty. We need to analyze the Chinese government policy in this strategic metal and be prepared of any change.
