China Aluminum Inventories Grow for Three Consecutive Weeks, SMM Reports

SHANGHAI, Nov. 21 (SMM) – Aluminum stocks in China’s five major markets have been growing for three weeks in a row, SMM statistics showed.


The growth is partly due to release of restarted and new capacity and partly because downstream producers postponed purchases against high aluminum prices, SMM explained. Recent big gains in aluminum prices attracted inflows of imported aluminum ingots into domestic market, another reason behind the inventory increase, SMM added.
