• Chinese Ignition Battery demand shoots up on high-temperature weather

    CHINA July 14 2017 1:41 PM

    SHANGHAI (Scrap Register): Ignition battery replacement demand in China grew sharply recently due to high-temperature weather.

    According to SMM, Inventories at ignition battery distributors were around one month, with few exceeding one month, but those decreased to around 15 days for now.

    Some battery types even reported supply shortage. Distributors thus planned to build stocks.

    However, orders at battery producers saw no significant improvement as falling lead prices raised distributors’ purchase caution, despite of improving end-user demand.

    SMM expects, orders at battery producers will increase from mid and late July in anticipation of stock-building demand from distributors.
