China Manganese Ore Market Movement (2013-1-30)

SMM Insight 05:25:02PM Jan 30, 2013 Source:SMM

SHANGHAI, Jan. 30 (SMM) -- In China’s manganese ore market, inquiries from downstream alloy producers reduced, while traders were still reluctant to move goods. Based on SMM survey result, market expects manganese ore prices rose by USD 0.2/mtu or RMB 1.3-1.5/mtu. However, bidding prices from Shagang Group and Hebei Iron and Steel were flat or slightly down from a month earlier, dampening silicomanganese market. SMM believes that if imported manganese ore prices continue to rise steadily, China’s silicomanganese alloy producers will be forced to halt production.

A batch of manganese ore imported from South Africa arrived at ports, but was largely ordered by silicomanganese alloy producers.
