In May, the supply and demand of liquid ammonia was unbalanced, and the price continued to decline

In May, the domestic liquid ammonia market continued the market of last month and continued to fluctuate downward. According to the monitoring of the business association, since May, for example, in Shandong Province, the price of liquid ammonia has dropped by 5%. The continuous downward trend of the price of liquid ammonia is mainly due to the result of the game between high inventory and low demand. Under the pressure of the manufacturers, the factory price has been lowered repeatedly, and the market offers have been lower. The range is 200-400 yuan / ton, and the market offer is 2500-2700 yuan / ton near the end of the month.

 

Benzalkonium chloride

Shandong and Hebei, the main producing areas, showed a significant decline. On the one hand, when the market enters may, under the background of weak demand, the high start-up rate has increased the pressure on the manufacturers’ inventory. According to statistics, the start-up rate of liquid ammonia manufacturers in May is still around 80%. Due to the influence of spring ploughing season in the early stage, the demand for liquid ammonia in China has increased sharply, and the market delivery situation is naturally smooth. Compared with other chemical products, liquid ammonia has stepped out of an independent upward market. However, with the end of the peak season, the market returns to calm, and the downstream procurement shrinks, leading to the gradual accumulation of liquid ammonia in the manufacturers. At present, the amount of ammonia in Shandong, Hebei, Henan and other regions has been too high. Therefore, it is inevitable for the enterprises to reduce the price and inventory, and there are also enterprises to switch to urea to reduce the inventory pressure.

 

Sodium Molybdate

In May, the downstream demand of liquid ammonia also declined significantly, and it is in the off-season of fertilizer at present. Specifically, the operating rate of compound fertilizer enterprises this week is generally below 50%. Since April, the operating rate has dropped again and again, which is basically the same as last year. As a rule, the domestic demand of phosphate fertilizer market ended in April and may, enterprises rely more on the boost of export, and the demand for liquid ammonia is still relatively stable. But this year, affected by the overseas epidemic, the export orders have shrunk, and the inventory of enterprises has been under pressure, and the phosphate fertilizer enterprises have changed to produce compound fertilizer, further weakening the demand for liquid ammonia. In May, the downstream monoammonium phosphate (- 4.03%) and diammonium phosphate (- 1.29%) all decreased in varying degrees (as shown in the figure above).

 

In the future, the business community believes that the current supply pressure is large, and the peak season has passed, the demand is low, and the imbalance between supply and demand leads to the market entering a relatively empty window period. However, with the limited production of the enterprise, the inventory will continue to be destocked, and the contradiction between supply and demand will gradually ease. It is expected that the price will still be under pressure in the short term. In the medium term, with the alleviation of the contradiction between supply and demand, the liquid ammonia market will return to temperature.

ferric sulfate (Poly ferric sulphate)

Data show that the operating rate of Chinese aluminum fluoride producers in April was 57.62%, down 2.11% month on month. In April, the supply of aluminum fluoride from manufacturers fell steadily. It is expected that the operating rate of aluminum fluoride in May will be the same as that in April, and the supply of aluminum fluoride from manufacturers will be stable. Downstream domestic aluminum consumption has entered a stable period of demand, and there is no significant change. Downstream manufacturers’ demand for aluminum fluoride is stable. This week, the upstream fluorite price was running at a low level, and the price of hydrofluoric acid was stable, with a slight impact on the price of aluminum fluoride.

 

Analysts of aluminum fluoride industry in the chemical branch of business society think that: the market prices of fluorite and hydrofluoric acid in the upper reaches have fallen to a low level, the consumption of aluminum in the lower reaches is stable to be increased, and the domestic aluminum fluoride manufacturers are also stable to be increased.

povidone Iodine

The recent performance of power coal price is strong. On the whole, in the context of production reduction, overhaul of Daqin line, sharp drop in port inventory, and increasingly strict import restrictions, daily coal consumption of coastal power plants soared, and power plant inventory. Under the boost of high daily consumption, the power plant continued to maintain de stocking in the near future. From the downstream power plant to May 22, the daily coal consumption of six power plants was 675400 tons / day, with a weekly to environmental ratio of 15500 tons / day. As of May 22, the inventory of Qinhuangdao port was 3.89 million tons, with a decrease of 475000 tons in the weekly to environmental ratio; as of May 22, the total inventory of six major power plants was 1416.00 tons, with a decrease of 5555000 tons in the weekly to environmental ratio. In the near future, the market purchasing enthusiasm has increased significantly, driven by the fast speed of going to the warehouse, the near peak summer replenishment window and the “buy up don’t buy down”. In addition, import restrictions are becoming more stringent. From January to April, the coal import volume is close to 130 million tons. If calculated according to the rumored import quota of 250 million tons in the market at the beginning of the year, the remaining import quota is less than 50%, part of the port import quota has been exhausted, and the import restrictions are stricter.

 

Macro: in April 2020, the BCI of the business community was -0.02, with an average increase of 0.38%, reflecting the contraction of the manufacturing economy compared with the previous month and the stable operation of the economy.

 

According to the analyst of business agency: the main data of industrial production above Designated Size from January to April 2020 from the National Bureau of statistics, in April, the national raw coal output was 322.12 million tons, an increase of 6.0% year on year. From January to April, the national raw coal output was 1152.44 million tons, up 1.3% year on year. In April, the output of raw coal was 322 million tons. Although the month on month ratio dropped, the year-on-year growth was still 6%. After structural adjustment on the supply side, with the release of high-quality production capacity, the domestic coal supply capacity steadily increased. Generally speaking, the price of power coal will keep rising in the short term, but in the long term, the price of power coal will return to rationality.

The main commodities rising were chloroform (17.86%); the main commodities falling were fluorite (- 6.83%), hydrofluoric acid (- 6.00%), cryolite (- 2.94%). This week, fluorine chemical products declined to different degrees. The specific product analysis is as follows:

 

Bacillus thuringiensis

According to the price trend chart of fluorite, the price trend of fluorite continues to decline. According to statistics, as of May 9, the average price of domestic fluorite is 2577.78 yuan / ton, and the price trend of domestic fluorite continues to decline. According to statistics, the price of 97 fluorite wet powder in Inner Mongolia is 2400-2700 yuan / ton, that of 97 fluorite wet powder in Fujian is 2500-2900 yuan / ton, and that of 97 fluorite wet powder in Henan is 2500-28 yuan / ton The price of 97 fluorite wet powder in Jiangxi is 2500-2900 yuan / ton.

 

In recent years, the price trend of fluorite in China has continued to decline. First, with the gradual warming of the temperature, domestic fluorite enterprises have started to work gradually, the operating rate of fluorite has increased, and the domestic mines and flotation units have started to work more, which has increased the spot supply of fluorite in the field, sufficient supply of goods in the field, and the price of fluorite in China has fallen. The manufacturers of fluorite in the North started construction step by step, the supply of fluorite in China increased, and the price trend of fluorite in the site declined. Secondly, in the near future, the price of hydrofluoric acid and the market of refrigerants in the downstream are weak, which has a certain negative impact on the domestic fluorite market, and the price of fluorite in China has dropped. Recently, the price of hydrofluoric acid Market and refrigerant industry has declined, and it is expected that fluorite prices will continue to decline in the later period.

 

The average price of domestic hydrofluoric acid market is 9080 yuan / ton as of the 9th day. Recently, the domestic hydrofluoric acid market continues to decline. The mainstream of hydrofluoric acid negotiation in Fujian Province is 7800-9000 yuan / ton, that in Shandong Province is 8000-9000 yuan / ton, that in Jiangxi Province is 7800-9500 yuan / ton, and that in Inner Mongolia is 7600-9000 yuan / ton. The supply of hydrofluoric acid market is sufficient, Market prices continued to fall.

 

In the near future, the operation rate of hydrofluoric acid in China is about 60%. The enterprises report that the spot supply of hydrofluoric acid in the site is sufficient at present, but the downstream market is not good, and the demand for hydrofluoric acid market is weak. In the near future, due to the price drop in the downstream market, and the price of fluorite in the upstream, the domestic market price of hydrofluoric acid continues to decline. In the near future, most of the manufacturers report that the loss of hydrofluoric acid is serious, Domestic hydrofluoric acid market price continued to fall due to negative influence. The demand for downstream refrigerants is not good, and the market price of hydrofluoric acid declines greatly. It is expected that the market price of hydrofluoric acid will be slightly lower in the later stage.

In the near future, the price of refrigerant products keeps falling. As of the 9th, the price of domestic R22 products is 14833.33 yuan / ton, and the price of R134a is 21666.67 yuan / ton. In the near future, the sales of the automobile industry is in a downturn, and the market trend of the downstream refrigerant of the terminal is poor. The demand for refrigerant keeps falling, and foreign special events are serious. The export of refrigerant terminals is not smooth, and they are mainly supplied to the domestic market. However, the domestic air conditioning industry has started construction Low level, weak after-sales demand for maintenance, overall, domestic and foreign demand are less than expected. At present, the refrigerant R22 manufacturer’s load is reduced, the inventory is in a reasonable range, and the price pressure is reduced due to the drag of demand. However, the situation of market price or not is obvious. The price mainstream of domestic large enterprises is 14000-17000 yuan / ton. The price trend of R134a market in China is declining, and the unit operation rate of production enterprises remains low. At present, the downstream operation is not high, and the demand for R134a is cold. In the near future, the procurement of downstream industry is not active, and the price drops slightly. The downstream demand is poor, and the price of refrigerant products continues to decline.

 

The product price of fluorine chemical industry keeps falling, the downstream demand of terminal is not getting better, the export market is not good, and the domestic market starts to maintain a low level. It is expected that the sales of fluorine chemical industry in the later stage will still be low, and the market will still be slightly lower.
