World Magnesium Forum 2012

March 28-30, 2012 Xi'an, China
In 2013, magnesium industry saw shutdown, reorganization and adjustment. Fugu Magnesium Industry Group operating cooperatively companies led to an ascending price against the market, and helped the company to obtaine the discourse power and pricing right gradually. However, can Chinese magnesium industry turn around successfully in this situation? And can the cancellation of the export duty help to largen the application of magnesium metal in downstream markets?
End-users started to build trader relations directly with domestic producers as demand from international market continued to decline with business margins , which issued challenges to intermediate traders. In addition, Customs policies of downgrading exchange rates and raising ocean freight added fuel to the fames to magnesium traders with the result that some participants had envisaged a dead line while others had turned to other fields.
Unprecedented pressures see both challenges and opportunities. Hence, magnesium manufacturers familiar with market disciplines and trend will make the best use of capital, information and new supply mode ahead of time in order to gain an advantage over the future reform.

How to stand up to repeated shuffles despite of severe competition?
It is necessary for Chinese magnesium industry to avoid dependence on primary products and pay more attention to developing potential domestic market through cooperation and innovation, new magnesium alloy product development and deep-processing industrialization upgrade, in order to make full preparations for entering international market with high value-added products.
Duty on magnesium ingot and alloy has been cancelled since January 1st, 2013, how did the cancellation act on the application and development of magnesium metal in overseas markets?
On January 1, 2013, Chinese abolished 10% export tariffs on magnesium and alloy being implemented from 2008. The abolition of tariffs will reduce price range between magnesium and aluminum products which will be conducive to expand the application of magnesium all over the world.
