China June aluminium production increase, daily output hit a record high

2020-08-10

China's primary aluminum output rose to a six-month high in June and hit a record daily as domestic prices continued their bright rise and new smelters expanded production to cash in.

China produced 3.02 million tons of primary aluminum, or electrolytic aluminum, in June, up 0.8% from a year earlier, according to data released Thursday by the National Bureau of Statistics.

Output in June, measured based on official data, was the highest in a single month since December, up 1.4 percent from May.

China's primary aluminum output in the january-June period was 17.89 million tons, up 1.7 percent from a year earlier, the NBS data showed.

China's average daily output of primary aluminum in June was estimated at 100,667 tons, a record high and up from about 96,000 tons in May.

Shanghai aluminium is trading at rmb14,085 a tonne, up 6.1% in June, extending a strong rally in April and May. The lifting of the anti-epidemic lockdown led to a rebound in Chinese consumption in April and May.

Antaike, a research firm, reported last week that China added about 680,000 tonnes of aluminium smelting capacity in the first six months of this year.

China produced 5.08 million tons of 10 non-ferrous metals in June, up 3.1 percent from a year earlier, according to the National Bureau of Statistics.

China's output of 10 non-ferrous metals in the january-June period was 29.28 million tons, up 2.9 percent from a year earlier, the bureau said.
