At present, the consumer side of bismuth ingots, downstream buyers of wait-and-see sentiment is still quite heavy, according to market participants, because the downstream inventory is still relatively sufficient, so the current inquiry mentality is only to try the water, to see if there are low price resources to reach the heart price, but the actual desire to buy is general. According to market participants, in order to ensure shipment volume, some businesses still choose to meet the purchase psychological price of downstream users as much as possible while negotiating amicably, which has also led to a continuous downward shift in the center of gravity of the market price. It is expected that the market price will likely appear a new low next week.
