Although the price of FeV in Europe has been falling, according to the low price of FeV in the European market of 84,600 Yuan/ton, the price of imported FeV is close to 100,000 Yuan/ton with tax. Therefore, unless the foreign manufacturers actively give discount, there is no profit in importing FeV from the European bulk market. At present, the exclusive domestic agent of Russian ferrovanadium, Shanghai Mica International Trade Co., has offered about 94,000 Yuan/ton, and has a good sales in China.
