What’s Nickel Price Outlook after 5% Drop? SMM Reports

China’s NPI output dropped in April as big losses from high costs led to production cuts or suspension at domestic high-grade NPI producers, especially those in Inner Mongolia and Shandong. Production conditions at domestic low-grade NPI producers were mixed. 

Production cuts or suspension at some high-grade NPI producers are continuing as losses remain. Weak demand have triggered production reduction at both some low-grade NPI and stainless steel integrated mills and low-grade NPI plants.
