In March 2020, the national output of electrolytic nickel was 15600 tons, an increase of 16.03% over the previous month and 21.59% over the same period last year. According to a preliminary survey by SMM, production rose in March, on the one hand, because the natural days of the month were longer than in February, and on the other hand, the domestic return to work environment was also more stable and orderly than last month, and most of the smelters currently in production were producing more than last month. Among them, Jilin smelter has returned to the capacity release rate of the same period last year and began to produce electrolytic nickel normally, Gansu and Xinjiang smelters are currently in good production and normal scheduling. Due to the continued decline in nickel prices in March, Shandong and Tianjin smelters still maintain low-load production for the time being due to cost reasons. It is reported that although the two enterprises use imported intermediate products as raw materials, due to the preparation of raw materials in the early stage, the scheduling will not be affected in the short term. The electrolytic nickel production line at the Guangxi smelter is still suspended and is expected to resume in the fourth quarter.

In April, domestic electrolytic nickel production is expected to be 15500 tons, down 0.96 percent from the previous month. The number of natural days in April decreased, and the discharge output of each smelter decreased to a certain extent. However, if nickel prices continue to decline and the foreign epidemic continues to worsen, or increase cost pressure on manufacturers using overseas ores and intermediates as raw materials.
