Mining companies accelerated ROM production in order to have more iron ore concentrates available to satisfy the quick uptick in demand, market sources said on Thursday.
Chinese industry continued to recover in May, recording year-on-year growth of 4.4%, according to the latest release of China’s National Bureau of Statistics published on June 15. The May result was faster than the 3.9% for April – the first month of positive growth after several negative months when the COVID-19 outbreak was raging, Mysteel Global notes.
China’s pig iron output rose to a historical high of 77.32 million tonnes in May, up 2.4% on year and 7.4% on month, according to the latest data from the country’s National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) released on June 15. The previous high was 72.19 million tonnes recorded in May 2019, Mysteel Global notes.
The declines in China’s total fixed asset investment (FAI) and the funding in the property market slowed further by May, with the former down 6.3% on year over January-May as against the 10.3% on-year fall in the first four months, and the latter dipping 0.3% as against the 3.3% fall by April, according to the latest data from China’s National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) on June 15.

China’s sales of excavators for both domestic and overseas customers for May had rose on year for the third successive month, up 68% on year, as end-users had been booking in anticipation of more construction projects in the coming months, according to the latest statistics from the China Construction Machinery Association (CCMA) on June 9.
China imported about 22 million tonnes of coal for all purposes in May, reversing down 28.7% on month or 19.7% less on year, according to data from the country’s General Administration of Customs (GACC) on June 7, which was mainly due to lower thermal coal purchases, according to market sources.
For January-May, China’s foreign trade value declined more deeply by 8% on year than the 7.5% on-year fall for the first four months, as the foreign trade for May alone reversed down on month by 1.2% or down more sharply by 9.3% on year, according to the latest statistics in terms of the U.S. dollar from the country’s General Administration of Customs on June 7.
