“Spring casts the hope for happiness all over the earth and hence all creatures in nature become full of life.” In March every year, chrome and nickel industry insiders gather together under the same roof. FerroAlloyNet International Chrome & Nickel Products Summit has become the industry recognized Spring Grand Meeting. Since 2011, FerroAlloyNet International Chrome & Nickel Products Summit has been held 16 times. And we have grown into a unique and distinguished brand event. FerroAlloyNet will hold 16th International Chrome and Nickel Products Summit on March 7-8, 2019 in Zhuhai, Guangdong, China. We sincerely invite you to attend this conference!
In 2018, China’s economy has changed steadily but may be annoying sometimes. Sino-US trade frictions continue, and global economic growth is expected to weaken. Since the introduction of nickel ore quotas in Indonesia, the expectation of loose supply of nickel ore has continued. It has changed the concerns of nickel supply in the domestic market due to the changed foreign policy. At the same time, with the increase of environmental pressure in the domestic market, the production capacity of ferronickel and stainless steel has gradually shifted to the Indonesian market. Indonesia's investment environment for ferronickel and stainless steel is maturing, production is increasing, and the market's pattern is constantly changing. 2019 will be a challenging year and a year to seek opportunities in the challenge!
In 2018, domestic chrome ore people are struggling, and the spot price of chrome ore is generally in a downward trend. The domestic chrome ore stocks in the domestic port have been “more than 3 million tons” for the first time in the first half of the year. More and more large-scale factories have purchased mining independently, and the trading space of traders has been squeezed. The ferrochrome market has been in a weak consolidation. Although the volatility has narrowed, and the market is relatively stable, it still lacks many speculative opportunities for dealers. Can the price of chrome ore in 2019 increase through this situation? And what will be the ferrochrome market trend?
“Gather in Zhuhai and break the stalemate.” This time, we move the conference venue to Zhuhai, Guangdong, China. And we will continue the glory of previous 15 summits. We will invite upstream and downstream enterprises in chrome and nickel industry from over 30 countries to attend this event, including mine owners, minerals traders, alloy manufacturers & traders, end users, equipments factories, logistics companies, futures companies, research institutes, steel mills, industry associations, etc. We are looking forward to meeting you at this meeting to create business opportunities.
