CRU's Bulk Ferroalloys Monitor, published 01 September, reports that the jump in manganese ore and Chinese alloy prices seen end-July subsided, but August prices remain higher m/m. Research Manager Paul Butterworth writes: 'continued buoyant steel production and constrained alloy supply should stabilise Chinese alloy prices. Ore prices are also likely to remain somewhat elevated in the near-term but, ultimately, will fall on expected stronger supply.'
The monthly Bulk Ferroalloys Monitor provides detailed analysis of the crude steel, silicon metal, ferrosilicon and manganese ferroalloy industries.
In addition to exploring the latest market trends, the monitor also provides up-to-date supply/demand balances. European, US and Asian ferroalloy prices are also included along with the latest statistics and trends from the global steel markets. Plus a round up of industry news.
Data tables included:
- Production of crude steel
- Production of stainless steel (ingots and continuously cast products)
- Bulk ferroalloy prices in Europe, US and Asia (Silicon metal, Ferrosilicon, Silico-manganese, High-carbon ferromanganese, Medium-carbon ferromanganese, Manganese ore)
- Market indicators
- Major exporters of bulk ferroalloys
- Silicon metal supply demand balance
- Ferrosilicon supply demand balance
- Manganese ferroalloy supply demand balance
