China Manganese Ore Market Movement (2013-1-23)

SMM Insight 03:32:46PM Jan 23, 2013 Source:SMM

SHANGHAI, Jan. 23 (SMM) -- Most manganese alloy producers almost completed stock replenishment. As manganese ore prices have been hovering around high level and since prices for alloy were stale, production costs at alloy producers, especially small and medium producers, increased. Baosteel has raised ex-works steel prices for the fourth consecutive month, suggesting that steel market begins to recovery. However, SMM believes that overcapacity will continue to restrict steel prices.

Tight supply still reported. However, arrivals of goods to port in January will increase from a month earlier.

Due to sousing difficulty, some SMEs planned to halt production.
