Secondary Lead Smelters Halve Output on High Temperature, SMM Reports

Lead smelters in face of falling prices mainly supplied goods for term-contracts, and few spot transactions were heard. Traders were also inactive in making offers with insufficient inventories. Downstream battery producers mainly purchased secondary refined lead from spot market, in addition to resources from term contracts.
