2 the national production of nickel pig iron decreased by 4.46% to 40200 nickel tons, down 12.25% from the same period last year, and the output decreased month by month since November 19 (53100 nickel tons). In terms of grade, the output of high nickel and iron in March was 33800 nickel tons, which was 5.47% lower than that of the previous month, while that of low nickel iron in March was 6400 nickel tons, an increase of 1.3% over the previous month. In March, the output of nickel pig iron continued to decline, and the reduction was in the part of high nickel pig iron. The main reasons are as follows: 1. The market price of high nickel pig iron has basically fallen below the cost line of all domestic iron plants, the production pressure is high, and some iron plants have chosen to reduce the output. 2. Affected by the epidemic situation, many mining areas in the Philippines have been blocked, and the shipment of nickel mines in April is more pessimistic. The stock of nickel mines in most domestic manufacturers has been reduced to 1-2 months, and the stock of raw materials is tight. At present, some manufacturers have stopped production because of nickel ore depletion. Some manufacturers have also chosen the current low price of nickel iron to overhaul or reduce production to cope with the impact of nickel mine shortage; 3. The proportion of nickel raw materials in stainless steel plant is due to the continuous decline in the price of pure nickel and stainless steel, the price of waste stainless steel has been partially adjusted, and the demand for high nickel pig iron has been reduced. In March, the production of 200 series stainless steel resumed, and the output of low nickel and iron in the integrated steel plant increased, which was basically the same as that in February. The dynamic balance of increase and decrease in the part of low nickel pig iron was suspended in March due to the depletion of nickel mine, but the production of 200 series stainless steel resumed.

In April, national nickel pig iron production is expected to continue to decline month-on-month, by 5.11% to 38200 nickel tons. Among them, the output of high nickel pig iron decreased by 6.91% to 31500 nickel tons. The ring ratio of low nickel pig iron increased by 4.39% to 6700 nickel tons. With the further consumption of nickel mine inventory in April, the market is still pessimistic about the price expectation of high nickel pig iron in April, and the willingness to reduce production is further strengthened. the increase in low nickel pig iron production is mainly due to the resumption of production in large 200 series integrated stainless steel plants.
