With the adjustment of magnesium ingot market in recent years, the main production areas of magnesium ingots in China have gradually transferred from Shanxi Province to Shaanxi Province. at present, the Fugu and Shenmu areas of Shaanxi Province have exceeded Shanxi Wenxi area to become the largest magnesium ingot production base in China. In 2019, the total production of magnesium ingots in this area accounts for more than 60% of the total amount of magnesium ingots in China, which has great influence on the magnesium ingot market in China. Magnesium powder (20-80 mesh) and magnesium alloy (AZ91D, AM50, AM60) are the main downstream products in magnesium ingot market. After SMM research, in order to serve the magnesium industry chain related enterprises, to provide them with a true reflection of the spot market prices, and continue to improve and deepen the magnesium industry chain research, will be officially issued on May 6, 2020 "Fugu, Shenmu", "magnesium powder (2080 mesh)", "magnesium alloy AZ91D", "magnesium alloy AM50", "magnesium alloy AM60" spot quotation.

Shanghai Nonferrous Network (hereinafter referred to as SMM) is a completely independent third-party service organization, does not participate in any substantive transactions, but as a market observer or organizer to maintain close communication with the buyer or seller of the transaction, and provide relevant services for the market.

2.1 significance of quotation of SMM magnesium ingots (Fugu, Shenmu), magnesium powder (2080 mesh), magnesium alloy AZ91D, magnesium alloy AM50 and magnesium alloy AM60

With the adjustment of magnesium ingot market in recent years, the main production areas of magnesium ingots in China have gradually transferred from Shanxi Province to Shaanxi Province. At present, the Fugu and Shenmu areas of Shaanxi Province have exceeded Shanxi Wenxi area to become the largest magnesium ingot production base in China. In 2019, the total production of magnesium ingots in this area accounts for more than 60% of the total amount of magnesium ingots in China, which has great influence on the magnesium ingot market in China. Magnesium powder (20-80 mesh) and magnesium alloy (AZ91D, AM50, AM60) are the main downstream products in magnesium ingot market. After SMM research, in order to serve the magnesium industry chain related enterprises, to provide them with a true reflection of the spot market prices, and continue to improve and deepen the magnesium industry chain research, will be officially issued on May 6, 2020 "Fugu, Shenmu", "magnesium powder (2080 mesh)", "magnesium alloy AZ91D", "magnesium alloy AM50", "magnesium alloy AM60" spot quotation.

2.2 definition of price

The quotation of magnesium ingots (Fugu, Shenmu), magnesium powder (20-80 mesh), magnesium alloy AZ91D, magnesium alloy AM50 and magnesium alloy AM60 is the evaluation price produced and issued by SMM according to this methodology and can be used by both parties as a reference for spot trade settlement of magnesium ingots. This price reflects the self-raised price range of magnesium ingots (Fugu, Shenmu), 20-80 mesh magnesium powder, magnesium alloy AZ91D, magnesium alloy AM50 and magnesium alloy AM60 before the release time of the price of magnesium ingot (Fugu, Shenmu). At that time, SMM price members can query the historical price synchronously.

2.3 method of generating price

SMM obtains quotes for magnesium ingots (Fugu, Shenmu), magnesium powder (20-80 mesh), magnesium alloy AZ91D, magnesium alloy AM50 and magnesium alloy AM60 by means of standard.
