Buyers and sellers have a strong game mentality, and the overall price will remain strong in the short term. In terms of production, at present, the total daily supply of domestic electrolytic manganese manufacturers is basically maintained at about 4000 tons. Although individual manufacturers in the manganese triangle area carry out short-term maintenance, there is a slight surplus in spot supply in the market.
