According to statistics from the China Iron and Steel Association, stainless steel stocks of key stainless steel enterprises at the end of June were 14.9026 million tons, an increase of 1.7% from the end of the previous ten-year period and an increase of 2.8% from the same period of last month.

Pressure on the supply side will continue to increase during the latter period. From the perspective of demand, the traditional off-season has come.
