China Southern Rare Earth’s offer for terbium oxide soared by 500,000 yuan/mt
SHANGHAI, Nov 25 (SMM)—China Southern Rare Earth Group announced its latest listing prices for medium and heavy rare earth oxides. Prices of gadolinium oxide increased 3,000 yuan/mt to 176,000 yuan/mt, holmium oxide rose 60,000 yuan/mt to 505,000 yuan/mt, while terbium oxide prices soared 500,000 yuan/mt to 5.8 million yuan/mt. Prices of many rare earth products increased last week on tight supply. Both offers and actual traded prices of praseodymium-neodymium oxide and neodymium oxide climbed last week on tight supply and firm demand. Meanwhile, rising raw materials costs and shortage of spot cargoes also boosted prices of metal praseodymium-neodymium and metal neodymium. Prices of terbium oxide, dysprosium oxide and holmium oxide remained firm last week, but trades were moderate as most of the downstream users were cautious about restocking. SMM expects prices of some rare earth products to rise further in the near term due to limited supply of spot cargoes and demand from downstream magnetic materials producers who held certain orders and kept low inventories.
Xi Jinping: To enhance price influence of important commodities to better serve and lead the development of the real economy
SHANGHAI, Nov 13 (SMM)—Chinese President Xi Jinping emphasized on November 12 at the celebration conference of the 30th anniversary of opening and development of Shanghai Pudong that we should start with the opening of Shangahi Pudong, and then further open cities along the Yangtze River, and build Shanghai into one of the international economic, financial and trade centers as soon as possible. The Central Committee of the Communist Party of China has also assigned a series of national strategic tasks to Pudong. Xi stressed that China should create a new height of independent innovation and accelerate creation of world-class industrial clusters in the fields of integrated circuits, biomedicine and artificial intelligence, so as to better play the role of Shanghai free trade pilot area. We should also improve the financial market system, product system, institutional framework and infrastructure system, build an international financial asset trading platform and enhance price influence of important commodities to better serve and lead the development of the real economy.
China Rare Earth Summit: Post-COVID Rebound in China Rare Earth Market 2020
SHANGHAI, Oct 15 (SMM)—The China Rare Earth and Permanent Magnet Industry Market Application Summit 2020—held by SMM—took place today, at which SMM senior analyst Hu Yan delivered a speech on the theme of “Post-COVID Rebound in China Rare Earth Market 2020”, introducing China rare earth concentrate quota, rare earth imports, demand, policies and price review and forecast. China has increased quotas for rare earth concentrate mining and smelting in order to satisfy downstream demand, especially demand from the new energy vehicle (NEV) market. These quotas were mainly for light rare earth products, a move to protect the more precious medium and heavy rare earth resources, she said. For the first seven months of 2020, China’s imports of rare earth metal concentrate from the US jumped 117% from the same period last year, totalling 45,000 mt. China imported nearly 28,000 mt of rare earth metal concentrate from the US in 2018, and 46,000 mt in 2019. Prices of praseodymium-neodymium oxide fell before rising in 2020, bouncing back from the lowest of 260,000 yuan/mt to 350,000 yuan/mt. Tightened supply and improved demand significantly boosted terbium oxide prices to 5 million yuan/mt in 2020, while dysprosium oxide prices fluctuated between 1.7 million-1.95 million yuan/mt. In the fourth quarter, prices of praseodymium-neodymium oxide are likely to extend declines, while prices of terbium oxide and dysprosium are likely to continue to move range-bound.

Rare earth prices to strengthen on demand recovery, supply tightness
SHANGHAI, Feb 24 (SMM) – SMM expects near-term prices of light rare earth to hold steady while prices of medium-to-heavy rare earth will see further upward potential this week, on the back of limited supplies and gradual recovery of logistics and downstream production after weeks of stoppage due to the coronavirus outbreak. Prices of most rare earth products increased in the week ended February 21. A slight pickup in downstream demand pulled up prices of light rare earth last week, with the average prices of praseodymium-neodymium oxide rising to a two-month high of 286,500 yuan/mt on February 19. Prices of neodymium oxide outperformed that of praseodymium-neodymium oxide due to relatively tighter supply. As of Friday February 21, prices of neodymium oxide stood at 294,000-299,000 yuan/mt, compared with prices of praseodymium-neodymium oxide at 284,000-287,000 yuan/mt, SMM assessed.
The continued suspension of mineral imports from Myanmar, coupled with disrupted production in south China amid coronavirus impact weighed on the supply of medium-to-heavy rare earth products. Bullish prospects for prices drove sellers to hike offers of medium-to-heavy rare earth, with quotes of dysprosium oxide climbing to 1.79-1.82 million yuan/mt as of February 21, up 70,000 yuan/mt from a week ago. Trades occurred at prices around 1.8 million yuan/mt last week, SMM learned. Prices of terbium oxide and terbium metal also increased significantly, with traded prices rising to as high as 3.9 million yuan/mt and 5 million yuan/mt last week. Enquires for medium-to-heavy rare earth were brisk.

Car sales in China to fall 18% year on year in January, CAAM expects
SHANGHAI, Feb 13 (SMM) – Sales of automobile in China are expected to decline 18% year on year to 1.94 million mt in January, according to data from the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM). This would be down 27% from December 2019. CAAM data also showed that sales of new energy vehicles are estimated to fall 54.4% from the same month a year earlier to 44,000 units in January. The industry association said the recent epidemic outbreak is likely to wreak havoc on auto sales and production in China in the short term and warned that the outbreak does not account for January’s drop.
There were 17 working days in January due to the Lunar New Year holiday, five days fewer than January 2019, which led to the year-over-year drop in auto sales.

Passenger vehicles accounted for 21.44 million units, shrinking 9.6% year on year. In 2018, automobile sales in China declined 2.8%, marking the first contraction since the 1990s. CAAM data also revealed that sales of new energy vehicles in China slipped for the first time since the government began to vigorously promote clean energy vehicles about a decade ago, due to macroeconomic pressure and a significant cut in subsidies. NEV sales shrank 4% in 2019 to 1.21 million units. The industry ministry said over the weekend that China will not make significant cuts to subsidies for NEVs this year, which reassured carmakers.
CPCA: China NEV sales growth sharply slowed to 5.1% in 2019
SHANGHAI, Jan 10 (SMM) – China’s new energy vehicle sales grew sharply slower in 2019, as Beijing slashed subsidies, trying to wean the sector off government support. The China Passenger Car Association (CPCA) said on Thursday that 1.06 million new energy passenger vehicles were sold in China in 2019 in terms of wholesale volume, up 5.1% from 2018. This marked a substantial deceleration from 2018, when sales jumped 88.5% to 1.01 million units. In December 2019, wholesale sales of NEPVs in China surged 73.5% from November to 135,700 units. On a year-over-year basis, the sales declined 15.1% last month.
China's production of qualified passenger NEVs up 24% in November
SHANGHAI, Dec 30 (SMM) – About 89,000 new energy passenger vehicles produced last month in China obtained qualification certificates, down for the fifth consecutive month on a yearly basis, by 41.63%, but 23.96% higher from a month ago, lifted by outstanding performance of the pure EV market, showed data from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT). Production of pure EVs that obtained qualification certificates rose 29.3% month on month in November, with the output of Bestune’s B30EV400 model soaring 235.44%.

China NEV production dropped 41% YoY in November
SHANGHAI, Dec 17 (SMM) – China produced 95,000 new energy vehicles last month, up 11.8% from a month ago but down 41% from a year ago, showed SMM calculations based on data from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) released Monday. NEV production in January to November amounted to 1.05 million units, up 3.6% from the same period last year. NBS data also showed China’s overall production of automobiles stood at 2.61 million units, up 3.7% from the corresponding month of 2018, marking the first increase since July 2018. Auto production, however, is still on track for a second straight year of contraction. For the first 11 months of 2019, production of automobiles totalled 22.86 million units, down 9.6% year on year.
Myanmar has banned rare earth exports to China
SHANGHAI, Dec 16 (SMM) – Myanmar has closed the border to China to suspend rare earth ore exports to the top rare earth processor, in view of the environmental damage and conflicts caused by Chinese miners’ unregulated operations, SMM learned. The border will remain closed until mining operations are rectified, which grows concerns about supply of ion-type rare earth ores, feedstock for medium-to-heavy rare earth products. This is set to boost prices of medium-to-heavy rare earth products significantly in the new year, when demand recovers from year-end cash flow pressure. SMM assessed terbium oxide at 3,495 yuan/kg as of December 16, up 70 yuan/kg from the end of November. The price of dysprosium oxide rose 100 yuan/mt during the same period to 1,730 yuan/kg. Myanmar’s latest move came after China in late September reopened the Tengchong Yunnan/Myanmar port, which has been the main boarder crossing point for rare earth ores and concentrates to end a four-month closure. The previous ban on imports of rare earth ores to China through the Tengchong Yunnan/Myanmar port, starting from the middle of May after a six-month winding-down period agreed in late 2018, led to a jump in prices of medium-to-heavy rare earth products.
In June, prices of terbium oxide peaked 4,225 yuan/mt, up about 45% from lows seen at the start of the year, while prices of dysprosium oxide climbed more than 70% to a high of 2,000 yuan/kg. China set its annual rare-earth mining quota in November, indicating an increase for light rare earths but no change to the quota for ion-type ores.

Exclusive: Ratio of recycled metals from EV batteries to reach 70% by 2025
SHANGHAI, Nov 4 (SMM) – Metals recycled from electric vehicle batteries (EV batteries) will reach 70% of the amount of metals required by such batteries in 2025, said Hong Xiaoshu, sales director, Shanghai Utop Chemical Technology. "This is a significant increase from 8% in 2018, when EV batteries were first recycled in the market", Hong added, citing the anticipation of strong EV market growth. In an exclusive interview with SMM, Hong believed that recycled metals such as nickel, cobalt, lithium and manganese from EV batteries will be a source of industrial metals of great potential, as the global auto market are switching to electrical substitutes. Currently, there are around 3.5 million new energy vehicles in China, with EVs taking the lion’s share, accounting for 1.5% of the Chinese auto market. Utop Chemical, established in 2015, engages in the R&D, production and sales of solvent, lubricant and hi-tech industrial materials, which plays a part in metals recycling, as solvent extraction is an important step in the nonferrous metals recycling process.

2019 China Rare Earth Forum: Tighter supply, demand recovery to bolster rare earth prices in Sep-Dec
SHENZHEN, Sep 23 (SMM) – Prices of rare-earth products are likely to climb in the remainder of this year, in anticipation of stockpiling for strategic reserves by Beijing as well as tighter supplies and demand improvement, said Li Ziyan, senior rare earth analyst at SMM. The price growth is expected to be steady, Li told delegates at the 2019 forum on the development of China’s rare earth and permanent magnet industry held by SMM in Shenzhen on Monday September 23, as market participants will be more rational after sharp price gains in the first half of 2019. A fall in ore supply from Myanmar following a ban on imports that took effect in May will help lift prices of medium and heavy rare earths, as mixed rare earth carbonate is the feedstock for producing medium and heavy rare-earth oxides. Customs data showed that mixed rare earth carbonate accounted for 73.77% of China’s rare earth imports in June-July, compared with a ratio of 92.32% in January-May. For light rare-earth oxides, supply will tighten as a slew of smelting and separation plants have been required to suspend after excessive production in the first half of the year. Li also said that the role as a strategic resource, Chinese government’s crackdown on the black market and protracted trade conflict with Washington will remain supportive of rare earth prices. SMM assessed prices of praseodymium-neodymium oxide at 322,500 yuan/mt as of Monday September 23, and prices of neodymium oxide at 324,500 yuan/mt. Prices of dysprosium oxide stood at 1.89 million yuan/mt as of September 23, with those of terbium oxide at 3.9 million yuan/mt, showed SMM assessments.
