FerroAlloyNet 25th International Chrome & Nickel & Stainless Steel & New Energy Forum











FerroAlloyNet 25th International Chrome & Nickel & Stainless Steel & New Energy Forum will be held in Kunming, Yunnan Province, China on March 20-22, 2024. We sincerely invite you to attend!

Looking back to 2023, the domestic and international prices of chrome ore have maintained at a high level, which not only gives strong cost support to ferrochrome, but also provides guarantee for the stability of its price. Even the price of ferrochrome was basically guided by the price of chrome ore in 2023. The supply of high carbon ferrochrome has repeatedly reached record highs. Under the premise that the output and supply of overseas chrome ore has not increased massively, the relationship between domestic supply and demand has changed, and the port inventory remained low, so that the trend of ore prices has become an important guide of ferrochrome prices. At the same time, in order to seek a more stable mode of operation, chrome ore traders cooperated more closely with factories. Financing, mat endowment, shareholding and other ways have become common practice. On the other hand, due to the continuous downturn in the stainless steel market, the ferrochrome factory is under pressure on both sides. In order to reduce losses, steel mills reduced production and some suspended in the fourth quarter, resulting in a decline in the demand for raw materials and a continuous downward adjustment in ferrochrome prices, and causing the southern and northern ferrochrome factories to be unable to make ends meet. Factories in the south expanded the suspension of production, and the stalemate of the industrial chain intensified.

In 2023, the proportion of imported nickel ore grades has failed to keep a balance, with a significant year-on-year increase in the import volume of low grade nickel ore and a year-on-year decrease in the import volume of medium grade nickel ore. The domestic market supply and demand have quietly changed; Indonesian nickel ore prices have also fluctuated and become the focus of market attention once again. In 2024, the nickel ore market may face intensified challenges. On the one hand, China's market demand is expected to shrink, making imported nickel ore trading more difficult. On the other hand, Indonesian policy risks are still uncertain, and the market will face unknown challenges. Indonesia's nickel pig iron production capacity continues to increase, resulting in an oversupply of high grade nickel pig iron and a sharp drop in prices. The cost of domestically produced nickel pig iron remains high and continues to face a downturn in selling price. Although domestic factories have reduced production, the results have been minimal. In 2024, Indonesia's new nickel pig iron production capacity will continue to be put into operation, and the oversupply situation of nickel pig iron is difficult to change.

In 2023, the "defense war" of stainless steel prices continues to take place, with the highest drop of over 3,000 Yuan/ton for 300 series stainless steel products this year. Global economic growth is weak, and domestic stainless steel consumption has declined instead of being driven. In addition, layers of trade barriers in overseas markets have led to unsatisfactory stainless steel exports. In the context of increasing production of stainless steel, demand has not effectively followed up, and overcapacity has emerged. Steel mills have cancelled price limits and reduced prices to sell, leading to fierce competition within the industry and continuous price breaks.

In the context of the "Carbon peak and carbon neutrality" strategy, the development trend of the new energy industry is inevitable. Nickel, as one of the important ternary materials in the new energy industry, has become more entangled with traditional stainless steel raw materials after opening up the exchange channels between nickel pig iron and nickel matte, and increasing the production volume of electrolytic nickel by MHP. In 2024, some salt lake production capacity and African lithium mine production capacity will be released, and the average cost of lithium carbonate in the market will be reduced, and the supply of raw materials will increase. It is estimated that lithium salt prices will further return to rationality in 2024.

Looking forward to gathering together in the city of Kunming, Yunnan province, China! We will invite more than 600 representatives from the upstream and downstream industries of chrome, nickel, stainless steel and new energy to the event. We sincerely invite you to attend FerroAlloyNet 25th International Chrome & Nickel & Stainless Steel & New Energy Forum on March 20-22, 2024!
