FerroAlloyNet 26th International Chrome & Nickel & Stainless Steel & New Energy Forum











FerroAlloyNet 26th International Chrome & Nickel & Stainless Steel & New Energy Forum will be held in Qingdao, Shandong Province, China on September 11-13, 2024. We sincerely invite you to attend!

In recent years, China's ferrochrome production capacity has flourished and its proportion in global production capacity has been increasing year by year. The focus of production capacity has shifted from south to north, with obvious characteristics of large-scale and centralized production. The significant increase in ferrochrome production capacity has led to an explosive growth in demand for chrome ore. In addition, Indonesia's new ferrochrome production capacity has been put into operation, diverting some chrome ore resources and providing new support for ore prices, making the discourse power of ferrochrome factories, which were already completely dependent on imported chrome ore, even more fragile.

In 2024, the price of ferrochrome has always been at a high level affected by costs, and due to the continuous breakthrough of chrome ore consumption, the effective construction of port chrome ore inventory cannot be achieved. In addition, the initiative of ore prices is tightly grasped by sellers, and profits mainly flow upstream. Ferrochrome factories have entered a "thin profit" era completely.

In the first half of 2024, as domestic high grade nickel pig iron factories gradually shut down, the proportion of imported nickel ore grades tilted, with the import volume of medium grade nickel ore sharply decreasing, and the proportion of imported low grade nickel ore increased to about 70%. On the Indonesian side, due to insufficient approval of nickel ore quotas and the impact of rainy weather, domestic trade supply has continued to be tight. Indonesian factories had to increase the import volume of Philippine nickel ore, and the supply and demand in domestic and foreign markets have quietly changed. The upcoming inauguration of Indonesia's new president in October 2024 has brought new opportunities as policy risks intensify. Indonesia's nickel ore supply is tight, and the rising premium drives up the cost of nickel pig iron, which in turn drives up the price of high grade nickel pig iron. However, the demand in stainless steel terminals is average, with limited price increase, which suppresses the upward space of high grade nickel pig iron prices. The Indonesian nickel pig iron project continues to be put into operation, and the overall supply of high grade nickel pig iron is at a high level. Under large quantity supply conditions, can domestic and Indonesian pending projects still be put into operation as scheduled?

The stainless steel market in 2024 is complex and volatile. Under the influence of various factors such as global economic situation, supply and demand relationship, policy regulation, and fluctuations in raw material prices, the stainless steel market presents significant fluctuations and uncertainties. With the release of new production capacity, stainless steel output reached a new high in the second quarter. However, due to policy and unexpected factors, the increase in raw material prices is more significant, squeezing the profit margins of steel mills. The demand in traditional stainless steel consumption is not good, and new areas also need to be further developed. Therefore, the inventory and profitability of steel mills will directly affect the direction of raw material prices.

Under the background of the "carbon neutrality and carbon peaking" strategy, the new energy industry is rapidly developing and growing. Although the market demand in the first half of 2024 was slightly higher than expected, the overall demand is still at a low level, with weak adjustments in lithium prices. Under the realistic conditions of improving the quality of lithium carbonate in salt lakes and reducing costs and increasing efficiency in domestic lithium carbonate factories using hard lithium ore raw materials in 2024, the average cost of the lithium carbonate market continues to decrease. It is estimated that the lower limit of lithium salt prices will further expand in the second half of 2024.

Looking forward to gathering together in the city of Qingdao, Shandong 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 26th International Chrome & Nickel & Stainless Steel & New Energy Forum on September 11-13, 2024!
