1. The output of lithium increased year-on-year, while the output of nickel and cobalt decreased slightly. According to data from Beijing Antaike Information Co., Ltd., the output of lithium carbonate and lithium hydroxide in my country was 60,000 tons and 47,000 tons respectively in the first quarter, up 23.2% and 29.5% year-on-year; refined cobalt (including electrolytic cobalt, cobalt powder, cobalt salt) etc., in terms of metal content), primary nickel (nickel products produced from primary materials, including electrolytic nickel, nickel-containing pig iron, nickel salt, etc., in terms of metal content), the output was 30,000 tons and 172,000 tons respectively, down 2.2% and 1.8% year-on-year. %.

According to the data of the General Administration of Customs, in the first quarter, cobalt concentrate and cobalt hydrometallurgical intermediate products were imported 7,440 tons and 84,000 tons respectively, an increase of 277.8% and 23.4% year-on-year, electrolytic nickel was imported 55,800 tons, an increase of 74.9% year-on-year, and lithium carbonate imports 27,500 tons, a year-on-year increase of 44%. The import of nickel concentrate was 4.5 million tons, down 5.3% year-on-year, and the import of electrolytic cobalt was 837 tons, down 49.1% year-on-year.
