In addition, in September 2019, China exported 4861 tons of forged manganese and manganese products, an increase of 2330 tons over August.
The export volume of electrolytic manganese in September 2019 is as follows: 10090 tons to South Korea, 9333 tons to the Netherlands, 5662 tons to the Russian Federation, 3725 tons to Japan, 3213 tons to India and 1970 tons to Brazil.

According to SMM, compared with the previous exports of electrolytic manganese in July and August, the increase in manganese exports in September was expected by most domestic industry, mainly due to the corresponding reduction in the demand for domestic electrolytic manganese and manganese products during the summer recess of overseas steel mills in July and August, while most overseas steel mills resumed production and increased demand release in September. According to the overall spot price of electrolytic manganese, the average price in September was 11300 yuan / ton. The average price of the month-on-month was 100 yuan / ton higher than that in August.
