Benchmark Mineral Intelligence, the lithium-ion supply chain’s leading Price Reporting Agency (PRA), is pleased to announce that it has launched an upgraded flake graphite price index on the back of the addition of new domestic Chinese prices which were launched in February 2020.
Prices now included in the graphite price index are:
-100 mesh, 90-93% C, FOB China
-100 mesh, 94-95% C, FOB China
+100 mesh, 90-93% C, FOB China
+100 mesh, 94-95% C, FOB China
+80 mesh, 94-95% C, FOB China
+50 mesh, 94-95% C, FOB China
-100 mesh, 90-93% C, DDP China
-100 mesh, 94-95% C, DDP China
Incorporating these new prices into the flake graphite index will provide a deeper insight into the global supply chain, particularly for feedstock material being traded into the battery supply chain.
The new DDP China pricing tracks the price of material being traded within the Chinese domestic market – the world’s leading market for flake graphite – adding to our FOB price assessments which provide a global reference.
Coinciding with the upgrade of the graphite Index, Benchmark has also updated the base month to January 2015. This was to ensure the index was more reflective of the market and current products traded.
