As most buyers have accumulated stocks during late September, while usage was slow due to subdued feed demands, biotin prices softened during October.
 
Some producers were releasing stocks at prices as low as RMB150-160/kg. In the general market, transacted prices by major producers were at RMB155-170/kg.
 
Biotin prices are unlikely to strengthen as animal feed demand stays weak.
