Indian Ferro Chrome Prices Resurges Amid Improved Chinese Market Conditions

Indian Ferro Chrome prices increased amid improved global market conditions. In China, there is decrease in VAT rates – from 16% to 13% which would have been effective from 1st Apr’19, but the notification is still awaited.

Therefore, the buyers are showing reluctance in buying any stock further as the prices in the domestic market would reduce once the VAT is down at 13%. However, in South Africa, power tariffs are going up and the supply is going down. With the depiction of supply tightness in the global market in the upcoming period Indian producers have raised their offers in the market.

Domestic prices for Ferro Chrome in India is assessed to be in the range of INR 74,000/MT to INR 75,000/MT. Export prices for CNF South Korea (10-50mm, HC 60%) is 86 cents/lb, for CNF Japan(10-50mm, HC 60%) is 87 cents/lb and for CNF China(10-150mm, HC 60%) is around 84-84 cents/lb.

On the future outlook, global buyers are likely to follow the Chinese market and global Ferro Chrome prices are expected to go up in line with Chinese Prices. Indian producers are also trying to push up the prices on higher Chrome Ore prices in India and tighter Ferro Chrome supply expected in the coming days from South Africa.
