The supply of cobalt is at a high level, and the downstream enterprises are purchasing on demand, but the market is still dominated by the wait-and-see. The cobalt price in the international market has fallen, causing the domestic market to follow suit. The high supply and low demand have caused the cobalt price to rise and the risk of decline has increased. However, due to the high price of the international cobalt mine in the previous period, the import cost of cobalt mine is relatively high, and the space for cobalt price decline is limited.
In the market outlook, the international cobalt price fell, causing the domestic cobalt price to follow the trend. However, due to the lack of major changes in the supply and demand of the cobalt market, the overall supply of cobalt was oversupplied, the cobalt price was difficult to maintain, and the domestic cobalt price still had a downside risk. It is expected that the cobalt price in the market will fluctuate and stabilize. Cobalt prices have stabilized after falling slightly.
