Fastmarkets today launches two weekly Chinese domestic price assessments for vanadium nitrogen and vanadium pentoxide (V2O5), expanding its current price coverage of the vanadium market.

Following a month-long consultation, Fastmarkets has launched two new price assessments, namely vanadium nitrogen, basis 77%V, 16% N, ex-works China and vanadium pentoxide 98% V2O5 min, ex-works China, to complement its existing price assessments for Chinese ferro-vanadium and V2O5 that both are on an fob basis.
An absence of spot Chinese export activity over the past year has necessitated the need for price assessments in China’s domestic vanadium market to directly track trends in the country and gauge the opportunities for international business, including both imports and exports.
