17 May 2023

(The picture above has nothing to do with the content below.)


In May, many lead smelters restarted production after maintenance in the first half of the month. However, an increasing number of smelters began maintenance in the second half of the month. This led to significant fluctuations in the supply of lead ingots.


According to a survey by SMM, the lead smelters that completed maintenance in May were mainly medium and large enterprises in Yunnan and Hunan. The lead smelters that plan to conduct maintenance in May are located in Henan, Shandong, Guangdong, Inner Mongolia, and Jiangxi. Most of these smelters are large enterprises.


The following table summarizes the lead smelters that have completed or plan to conduct maintenance in May:



The maintenance of lead smelters will have a significant impact on the supply of lead ingots. The market is expected to be volatile in May. Buyers should be prepared for price fluctuations.
