China's FeV exports dip 19.8% in March, V2O5 shipments up 62.5%

China exported around 478 tonnes of ferro-vanadium (basis 75% vanadium) in March - a 19.8% fall compared with February and down 34.4% year on year - according to official, but unconfirmed, data seen by Fastmarkets MB.

The decline in ferro-vanadium export volumes in March was partly due to the fact that Chinese ferro-vanadium exporters showed less interest in exporting their material abroad when noticing that the domestic price was more favorable than the price in the international market, Fastmarkets understands.

Fastmarkets MB’s weekly export price assessment for ferro-vanadium, min 78%, fob China, was at $58-62.50 per kg on March 28, while Fastmarkets MB's bi-weekly price assessment for ferro-vanadium, 78% min, delivered duty-paid in Europe, was $52.50-57.50 per kg on March...
