Manganese alloy demand from the downstream sector is decreasing according to the data released. In January-October, 2021, the real monthly consumption of silicomanganese (including standard silicomanganese, high-silicon silicomanganese and other non-standard silicomanganese) in China totalled 9,021,900 mt, while China’s silicomanganese output in the same period recorded 8,988,000 mt. The demand in October dropped from last from, while the output picked up from September.
As far as SMM understands, the power rationing in major producing areas has been relaxing since mid-October, and the output picked up faster than expected. However, the production restrictions toward downstream steel mills did not improve, leading to...
