The mine supply is still tight, and the domestic mine output has been low. This year, the import performance is not satisfactory. The shortage of domestic raw materials has not been greatly eased, but downstream demand continues to be weak, and procurement is mostly based on demand. Dragging down the spot market trend, today's futures market is booming, and the domestic spot market is boosted by the price rebound.
