Iron ore price leaps into 2021

In December, the steelmaking raw material hit its highest level since September 2011 after gaining nearly 80% during the year.

“Impact from the pandemic (on iron ore) was not as pessimistic as the market expected,” Zhuo Guiqiu, analyst with Jinrui Capital told Reuters:

“The big jump came after Vale lowered its shipments expectations and a robust Chinese steel demand in the fourth quarter.”

China is expected to have forged more than 1 billion tonnes of crude steel in 2020 and imports of iron ore are also running at record levels of more than 1 billion tonnes per annum.
