Global magnesium ingot prices rise again, industry faces supply and demand challenges


According to the latest report, global magnesium ingot prices have risen again in the past few months, posing new challenges to the magnesium alloy industry. Magnesium ingots are around 20,800-21,000 yuan/ton. This rising trend has attracted widespread attention in the market, and all parties have begun to think about the reasons behind this phenomenon and its possible impacts.



According to market data, magnesium ingot prices have risen by about 15% to 20% since the end of last year, mainly due to the dual impact of tight supply chains and increased demand. On the one hand, some major magnesium producers globally face production challenges such as insufficient supply of raw materials, rising energy costs, and labor issues. On the other hand, the increasing demand for magnesium alloys from industries such as automobiles and aerospace has driven the growth of market demand.


Industry experts say this price increase trend in the global magnesium ingot market may have a profound impact on the magnesium alloy industry. First of all, the high price of magnesium ingots will directly affect the manufacturing cost of magnesium alloys, which may increase the price of final products, thereby affecting the stability and competitiveness of the related industrial chains. Secondly, tight supply chains may cause some companies to face the risk of production stagnation or even suspension of production, further exacerbating the contradiction between supply and demand in the market.


In response to this situation, the industry calls on all parties to strengthen cooperation and jointly respond to supply and demand challenges. On the one hand, magnesium production companies need to increase investment, improve production efficiency, and ensure the stability and sustainability of the supply chain. On the other hand, companies using magnesium alloys also need to actively explore alternatives, reduce their dependence on magnesium ingots, and strengthen communication and coordination with suppliers to deal with possible supply chain problems.


Overall, the rise in global magnesium ingot prices once again highlights the close relationship between supply and demand, and also reminds relevant industries to adjust their strategies in a timely manner and adapt to market changes in order to maintain competitive advantages and sustainable development.
