Cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber market price rises (3.15-3.19)

According to the data monitoring of business news agency, the domestic cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber market rose during the week (3.15-3.19), with the price at 13960.00 yuan / ton at the beginning of the week and 13280.00 yuan / ton at the weekend, up 2.47% overall.

 

This week (3.15-3.19), the domestic cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber market rose, and the ex factory price of cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber increased by 300 yuan / ton. According to the monitoring of business agency, as of March 19, the ex warehouse price of Daqing cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber of PetroChina Northeast sales company was 13800 yuan / ton; Qilu cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber of Sinopec North China sales company was 13700 yuan / ton, and North China warehouse was raising the price; Yanshan cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber was 13620 yuan / ton, and North China warehouse was raising the price.

 

On Monday, a fire broke out in Maoming Petrochemical’s cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber plant, and the plant was shut down. The overall supply side of the market was tight, and the supply price and market price of cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber both went up.

 

Raw material prices have softened slightly this week, and the cost side is weak. According to the monitoring of business news agency, as of March 19, the price of butadiene was 8441 yuan / ton, down slightly by 0.07% compared with 8446 yuan / ton at the beginning of the week.

 

On the demand side, after the Spring Festival, the downstream market started to recover gradually, and the downstream stock increased, but recently there was a conflict with high price rubber, and the stock decreased slightly.

 

Future forecast: business community analysts believe that at present, although the supply side is still tight, the price of raw material butadiene is weak, the international crude oil adjusted sharply on the 18th, the peak of downstream phased procurement has passed, and the overall support for cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber is weak. It is expected that cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber will face a slight decline and adjustment in the short term.

Crude oil price falls, ethylene market price falls

According to the monitoring data of the business news agency, the external price of ethylene has dropped recently. On March 16, the price was US $1196.25/ton, and on March 17, the average price of ethylene was US $1161.25/ton, down 2.93%. The current price has increased by 19.44% month on month, and the current price has increased by 69.59% year on year.

 

In the near future, the overall external ethylene market showed a downward trend. Asian ethylene market prices fell sharply. As of the 17th, CFR Northeast Asia closed at 1198-1204 US dollars / ton, CFR Southeast Asia closed at 1143-1150 US dollars / ton. The price of ethylene market in Europe fluctuated and consolidated. As of the 17th, FD closed at US $1219-1231 / T in northwest Europe and CIF closed at US $1208-1219 / T in northwest Europe. The price of ethylene in the United States is relatively stable. As of the 17th, the price is US $1288-1300 / ton. Recently, the market of ethylene in Europe, America and Asia shows a slight downward trend. Generally speaking, the external market of ethylene is cold and the market tends to go down.

 

International: on March 16, the price of WTI crude oil futures market in the United States closed lower, with the settlement price of the main contract at US $64.80/barrel, down US $0.59. Brent crude oil futures market prices fell slightly, the settlement price of the main contract was 68.39 US dollars / barrel, down 0.49 US dollars. Crude oil futures closed lower, mainly due to the slow recovery of US refineries after extreme weather, and the market expects us crude oil inventories to continue to rise.

 

Recently, the Styrene Market in Shandong continued to fall. Crude oil fell in a weak position, pure benzene price fell slightly, ethylene price was firm, and styrene cost was well supported. Due to the strong price of raw materials, the price of styrene has been greatly reduced, and the profit of styrene has been rapidly compressed to the theoretical cost, so there is limited room for further decline. On the supply side, new units are about to be put into production, of which the 450000 ton unit of Sinochem Quanzhou is planned to produce products from March 15 to 20, other pre maintenance units will also be restarted one after another, and the 600000 + 600000 ton unit of Zhejiang Petrochemical, which was reduced to 50-60% last week, has been in full production at the weekend. Although the increase of styrene export leads to the realization of terminal destocking and the continuous strength of external market, the demand for styrene is weak due to sufficient spot supply, high price and strong wait-and-see sentiment at downstream and terminal. It is expected that styrene will continue to fluctuate weakly in the short term.

 

Ethylene analysts of business society chemical branch think: at present, in terms of crude oil, the uncertainty of crude oil demand has hit the market enthusiasm, crude oil is on a downward trend, and it is difficult to support the ethylene market in terms of cost. Therefore, data analysts of business society expect that the external price of ethylene will mainly fall next.

Rising trend unchanged, PVC market continues to be red

1、 Price trend

According to the data monitored by the business society (the average price of SG5 manufactured by calcium carbide method), on March 15, the mainstream average price of PVC in China was 8725 yuan / ton, up 1.31% over the previous trading day, 18.71% over the same period of last year, and 39.88% over the same period of last year.

 

2、 Market analysis

 

Last week, the PVC market was relatively volatile, with mixed ups and downs. The whole week showed a slight upward trend. Due to the rising futures prices and the strong support of the cost side, the rising sentiment of PVC market continued to this week. On Monday, there was a large-scale rise. The price increase in most regions was about 200-350 yuan / ton, and the price exceeded 9000 yuan / ton. Some enterprises also stayed on the sidelines. Recently, the futures price has been in a strong shock, which has driven the focus of the spot market upward. Under the mentality of buying up but not buying down, the downstream has increased the heat of inquiry. However, it still takes time for high price PVC to transmit to the downstream. At present, the downstream start-up load is not high, and only just need to purchase, but the social inventory has decreased year-on-year, which shows that the demand support is still in progress, and the market transaction has gradually improved; the PVC export orders are good, and the external market is strong, which is good for PVC upward; under the policy of double control of energy consumption in Inner Mongolia, the raw calcium carbide has increased by more than 30%, and there is no sign of callback, so the cost support is strong; moreover, the cost support is strong Some PVC enterprises have maintenance plans, and the market supply side is favorable, which supports the upward movement of PVC. On the whole, PVC is positive, the rising wind is not easy to change, and the market is strong.

 

In terms of spot price, the price has increased in a large area, and the mainstream quotation range of pvc5 calcium carbide in China is around 8500-9100 yuan / ton. The main stream of pvc5 calcium carbide in East China is RMB 9000-9150 yuan / ton, the main stream of pvc5 calcium carbide in North China is RMB 8900-9000 yuan / ton, the main stream of pvc5 calcium carbide in South China is RMB 9000-9050 yuan / ton, the main stream of pvc5 calcium carbide in Central China is RMB 8850-9000 yuan / ton, and the price of PVC calcium carbide in Southwest China is RMB 8900-9000 yuan / ton.

 

In terms of futures, futures fluctuated at a high level, reaching a new high in nearly 10 years, driving the spot trend. On the 15th, v2105 contract opened at 8840, with the highest price of 9190 and the lowest price of 8770, closing at 9150, up 390, or 4.45%. The turnover was 930000, an increase of 380000. The position was 402000, an increase of 65538.

 

15 March 2005

Changzhou PVC calcium carbide process: 9000-9200 yuan / ton

Guangzhou ﹣ PVC ﹣ calcium carbide method ﹣ 8930-9050 yuan / ton

Hebei PVC calcium carbide process: 8950-8980 yuan / ton

Hangzhou ﹣ PVC ﹣ calcium carbide method ﹣ 8960-9150 yuan / ton

For upstream crude oil, on March 12, the price of WTI crude oil futures market in the United States fell slightly, with the settlement price of the main contract at US $65.61/barrel, down US $0.41. Brent crude oil futures market prices fell slightly, the settlement price of the main contract was 69.22 US dollars / barrel, down 0.41 US dollars. Oil prices fell slightly due to profit taking by bulls, but the current price is still relatively strong and volatile. On the one hand, the expectation of economic recovery is enhanced, and on the other hand, OPEC + production reduction policy supports oil prices.

 

On March 15, the reference price of ethylene was 1194.50, up 8.12% from March 1 (1104.75). Next, the world’s gasoline prices will rise sharply, so foreign analysts are optimistic about the current situation of ethylene prices.

 

On March 15, the reference price of calcium carbide was 4716.67, up 32.24% compared with that on March 1 (3566.67). On March 15, the ex factory quotation of calcium carbide in Northwest China rose, up 383.34 yuan / ton, or 8.85% compared with that on March 12. The price of raw material blue carbon was high and the cost of calcium carbide was well supported. The downstream PVC market has risen slightly recently, with higher prices compared with the same period last year. The downstream customers have a good enthusiasm for purchasing calcium carbide, and the market demand exceeds supply. The main reason for the rise of calcium carbide in Inner Mongolia is the double control of energy consumption, power limitation and furnace shutdown.

 

3、 Future forecast

 

PVC analysts of business news agency believe that at present, the PVC futures are relatively strong and volatile, and have been surging up for many times, driving the focus of the spot market to move up. Under the mentality of buying up but not buying down, the downstream has increased the heat of inquiry, and the market trading atmosphere has improved. In addition, the price of raw material calcium carbide has risen sharply, the external offer is strong, and the maintenance is good. Under the superposition of many factors, the PVC market has been pushed up again, and the price may continue to rise in the short term.

Light rare earth market “cooling down”

According to the monitoring of business society, the price index of domestic rare earth market fell slightly. The price of praseodymium and neodymium rare earth in China fell, while that of dysprosium and terbium remained at a high level. The price of domestic rare earth market fell slightly. According to the rare earth plate index of business society, the rare earth index was 562 points on March 14, which was the same as yesterday, down 43.80% from the highest point of 1000 points (2011-12-06), Compared with the lowest point of 271 on September 13, 2015, it has increased by 107.38%. (Note: period refers to 2011-12-01 to now).

 

It can be clearly seen from the rare earth index chart that the domestic rare earth prices have slightly rebounded. Recently, some prices in the rare earth market have gone down, and the rare earth market has cooled down. In terms of products:

 

It can be clearly seen from the product price trend chart that the domestic prices of praseodymium and neodymium oxide, praseodymium and neodymium alloy, neodymium oxide and neodymium metal all have dropped. As of March 15, the price of praseodymium and neodymium oxide in domestic rare earth is 572500 yuan / ton; the price of praseodymium and neodymium alloy is 712500 yuan / ton; the price of neodymium oxide is 680000 yuan / ton; the price of neodymium metal is 812500 yuan / ton; the price of praseodymium oxide is 492500 yuan / ton The price of praseodymium was 650000 yuan / ton, and the domestic market of light rare earth rose and fell.

 

In the near future, the demand for permanent magnets is acceptable, but in the early stage, the manufacturers are actively preparing goods, the inventory in the field is increased, the downstream procurement is not active in the near future, and the market price of light rare earths declines slightly. New energy vehicles have been booming from 2020 to 2021, driving the development of many industries. The market of upstream rare earth permanent magnet materials is rising. According to the insiders, the rare earth gap is likely to continue throughout 2021. The main rare earth raw materials of high performance NdFeB are light rare earth praseodymium neodymium oxide, heavy rare earth dysprosium oxide and terbium oxide, which are used in new energy vehicles, wind power, energy-saving frequency conversion air conditioning, traditional vehicles and other fields. According to statistics, new energy vehicles continue to break the historical record of single month sales. According to the data released by China Automobile Industry Association, in January, the production and sales of new energy vehicles were 194000 and 179000 respectively, up 285.8% and 238.5% year on year respectively. The downstream demand remained at a high level, and the domestic market price of light rare earths had a limited decline. In addition, in the near future, large rare earth manufacturers have obvious intention to support the price, and the market price of light rare earth is relatively strong. Recently, the domestic market price of heavy rare earths has maintained a high level.

 

It can be seen from the trend chart that the domestic price of dysprosium series remained at a high level. As of the 15th, the price of dysprosium oxide was 2.905 million yuan / ton; the price of dysprosium ferroalloy was 2.855 million yuan / ton, the price of dysprosium metal was 3.55 million yuan / ton; the domestic price of terbium series fluctuated at a high level, the domestic price of terbium oxide was 9.85 million yuan / ton, and the price of terbium metal was 12.35 million yuan / ton. The reasons for the high price of domestic heavy rare earth market include that Myanmar still forbids exports, and the global supply of rare earth is relatively concentrated. Myanmar is one of the production areas next only to China and the United States. Myanmar has a great influence on the domestic heavy rare earth market products. The import source has decreased significantly. The sharp contradiction between supply and demand in the domestic heavy rare earth market has led to a sharp rise in the price of heavy rare earth. In February 2021, the opinions of the State Council on supporting the revitalization and development of old revolutionary base areas in the new era proposed to promote the construction of “China’s rare earth Valley” and study the policies for the purchase and storage of medium and heavy rare earth and tungsten resources, Medium and heavy rare earths account for a large proportion of annual output in the purchase and storage plan, which is expected to have a greater impact on the supply and demand and price of medium and heavy rare earths. In addition, the downstream demand has been rising recently, the application of new energy has been growing rapidly, and the demand for permanent magnet has increased significantly, which has brought the greatest positive support to the heavy rare earth market. The price of heavy rare earth market has remained high. Due to the tight supply of terbium Market and the imbalance between supply and demand, the price trend of terbium market is temporarily stable.

 

In terms of domestic policies, the first batch of rare earth mining, smelting and separation total amount control indicators increased significantly in 2021, which was related to the strong downstream demand. The Ministry of natural resources issued the total amount control indicators of rare earth mining in 2021, and the total amount control indicators of the first batch of rare earth mining (rare earth oxide REO, the same below) in 2021 were 84000 tons, of which the ion type (mainly medium and heavy rare earth) rare earth mining index was 1 Standard 11490 tons, rock type (light) rare earth ore index 72510 tons. The first batch of tungsten concentrate (tungsten trioxide content 65%, the same below) has a total mining control index of 63000 tons, of which the main mining index is 46890 tons and the comprehensive utilization index is 16110 tons. In 2021, the total amount of rare earth and tungsten mining will continue to be controlled. The state policy is favorable, and the market price of rare earth will continue to rise.

 

With the continuous volume of new energy vehicles, wind power and variable frequency air conditioning in the downstream of rare earth, the demand is expected to further increase, the global rare earth supply gap is expected to continue to expand, the domestic demand for rare earth is expected to maintain a high level, and the domestic rare earth supply starts to work normally. However, in the near future, the downstream purchasing enthusiasm has declined, and business analyst Chen Ling expects that the market price of rare earth in the later period may maintain a shock in the short term It’s a trend.

Potassium nitrate prices rose this week (3.08-3.12)

According to the data monitored by the business agency, at the beginning of the week, the quotation of domestic first-class industrial potassium nitrate was 4175.00 yuan / ton, and at the end of the week, the quotation of domestic first-class industrial potassium nitrate was 4200.00 yuan / ton, up 0.60%. The current price was up 0.60% month on month, and the current price was down 3.45% year on year.

 

This week, the domestic potassium nitrate market rose, and the trading atmosphere of potassium nitrate Market improved compared with the previous period. The manufacturers had a positive attitude, and the shipment was smooth, leading the rise of potassium nitrate Market. According to the statistics of the business society, this week, the domestic mainstream manufacturers of potassium nitrate quoted 4000-4500 yuan / ton (the quotation is for reference only), and the quotation was different according to the different procurement situation.

 

Recently, the quotation of potassium chloride mainstream manufacturers Rose: on March 8, the potassium chloride equipment of Qinghai Salt Lake Potash Fertilizer Co., Ltd. operated normally. The ex factory quotation is about 2100 yuan / ton, and the quotation rises by 50 yuan / ton. The actual transaction price is mainly through negotiation. On March 12, Anhui Badou Chemical Co., Ltd. quoted a price of about 2400 yuan / ton for potassium chloride distribution, which rose by 140 yuan / ton. The actual transaction price was mainly through negotiation. The price of potassium chloride at the port continued to rise, and the quotation of traders kept rising. Strong cost support, good support potassium nitrate market rise.

 

In the near future, the potash market is short of marketable goods, the new arrival of port goods is not sufficient, and the price continues to rise. Under the support of cost, it is expected that the potassium nitrate Market will rise mainly in the short term, and the long-term market still needs to wait and see. (the above prices are provided by the main manufacturers of potassium nitrate all over the country and sorted out and analyzed by the potassium carbonate analysts of the business society. They are for reference only. For more price details, please contact the relevant manufacturers for consultation).

The LPG market is actively pushing up, and the price is back to the era of 4000 yuan!

In March, the LPG market changed its downward trend and returned to the upward trend. Shandong’s civil gas market rose significantly. According to the data monitoring of business society, the average price of LPG in Shandong market was 3700.00 yuan / ton on March 4 and 4026.67 yuan / ton on March 10, with an increase of 8.83% in the past seven days, up 8.34% compared with March 1.

 

As of March 10, the mainstream prices of LPG in various regions of China are as follows:

Specification ﹣ mode of transportation ﹣ region ﹣ mainstream quotation

Civil gas and automobile transportation in North China: RMB 3860-3900 / T

Civil gas and automobile transportation in East China: RMB 3650-3900 / T

Civil gas and automobile transportation in South China 4398-4500 yuan / ton

Civil gas and automobile transportation in Shandong Province: RMB 4000-4350 / T

It can be seen from the data of the business community that the LPG market has risen mainly in the past seven days, with a relatively obvious range. At present, the average price of Shandong’s civil gas market has risen to more than 4000 yuan / ton. On March 5, the international crude oil rose sharply, and the news was favorable to the market mentality. As the civil gas market continued to weaken in late February, and the price was relatively low, the manufacturers’ mentality was firm and most of them actively pushed up. Manufacturers generally smooth shipment, downstream market enthusiasm has improved, price behavior is the main factor. On March 8, the international crude oil continued to rise, which once again brought good news to the market. The civil gas market continued to rise, with the increase range of 50-100 yuan / ton in Shandong. However, as prices continue to rise, the lower reaches are in conflict with high prices, and Duowei holds to enter the market on demand, the atmosphere has become weaker than in the earlier stage. At present, the market supply in Shandong is stable, and only a few enterprises are shut down.

 

In the past seven days, the LPG futures market was mainly volatile, which brought Limited benefits to the spot market. On March 10, the opening price of LPG futures contract 2104 was 3913, the highest price was 3975, the lowest price was 3878, the closing price was 3934, the former settlement price was 3884, the settlement price was 3927, up 50, or 1.29%, the trading volume was 78641, the position was 23556, and the daily increase was – 2057. (quotation unit: yuan / ton)

 

Due to the rising market, the international crude oil support is more obvious. From March 8 to 9, the international crude oil continued to weaken, and the market lacked positive support. On March 10, it has stabilized in a large area, and only a few manufacturers made up for it. But there are also individual manufacturers, the current rate is not large. Generally speaking, the market supply is stable, but the demand follow-up is insufficient, the terminal is weak as a whole, the downstream market has been significantly weakened compared with the earlier stage, the manufacturers’ shipment is blocked, and the inventory is gradually accumulated. It is expected that Shandong’s civil gas market will consolidate horizontally in the short term and the trend will be weak.

Tight supply, antimony ingot prices continue to rise (March 1 to March 5)

From March 1 to March 5, 2021, the market price of antimony ingot in East China rose slightly, at 59750 yuan / ton at the beginning of the week and 68750 yuan / ton at the end of the week, with an increase of 15.06%

 

The antimony commodity index on March 8 was 97.10, up 1.39 points from yesterday, down 5.10% from 102.32 points (2012-10-16), the highest point in the cycle, and up 106.68% from 46.98 points, the lowest point on December 24, 2015. (Note: period refers to the period from September 8, 2012 to now).

 

The price of antimony concentrate has been rising all the way this week. The recovery of domestic antimony mining is slow, and there is no clear news of resumption of work in the near future. Recently, domestic smelting mainly relies on imported ore sources. Affected by foreign public health events, the situation of imported antimony ore is not optimistic. There are only sporadic small batch imports in the past half a year, which is a drop in the bucket to alleviate the shortage of domestic ore supply. On March 8, the quotation of European Strategic small metal was 10250 US dollars / ton, while on March 4, the quotation of European Strategic small metal was only 9750 US dollars / ton, which was increased by 500 US dollars / ton for three consecutive days. The rise of international antimony ingot price further affected the domestic spot market price. The domestic antimony ingot market price was increased for five consecutive days, with a cumulative increase of 900 yuan / ton.

 

As of March 8, the average price of 2 ﹥ low bismuth antimony ingot was 68500 yuan / ton, 1 ﹥ antimony ingot was 70000 yuan / ton, 0 ﹥ antimony ingot was 71000 yuan / ton, and the average price of 2 ﹥ high bismuth antimony ingot was 64000 yuan / ton, which was about 1000-1200 yuan / ton higher than that at the beginning of the month. The market price of antimony trioxide continued to rise along with the trend of antimony ingot. As of August 8, the average price of antimony trioxide was 99.5% at 64000 yuan / ton and 99.8% at 65000 yuan / ton, which was about 1000-1200 yuan / ton higher than that at the beginning of the month.

 

According to the price monitoring of the business community, in the list of commodity prices in the 09th week of 2021 (3.1-3.5), there were 13 kinds of commodities in the non-ferrous sector that rose month on month, among which 5 kinds of commodities rose by more than 5%, accounting for 22.7% of the total number of commodities monitored in the sector; the top 3 commodities were antimony (15.06%), praseodymium oxide (10.06%) and dysprosium metal (5.88%). There were 8 kinds of commodities with a month on month decrease, and 4 kinds of commodities with a decrease of more than 5%, accounting for 18.2% of the number of commodities monitored in the sector; the top 3 products with a decrease were nickel (- 12.39%), cobalt (- 8.66%) and silver (- 6.31%). The average rise and fall this week was 0.53%. Most of the nonferrous metal market rose

 

At present, it is difficult to ease the tight supply at the ore end. It is difficult to increase the quantity of domestic and overseas imports in the short term. The smelter can only continuously increase the ex factory price to achieve the purpose of reluctant to sell. Therefore, the price of antimony ingot still has room to rise in the future.

Favorable environment, downstream support, butadiene market price rebounded in February

The domestic butadiene market rebounded sharply in February, especially after the lunar new year. According to the sample data monitored by the business community, the domestic butadiene market price was 6056 yuan / ton at the beginning of the month, and 8235 yuan / ton at the end of the month, with an increase of 35.98% within the month and a year-on-year increase of 32.23%.

 

In February, domestic bulk commodities went through a cycle of sharp rise. With the favorable environment, the international crude oil price continued to rise, saving the butadiene market which started at a low level in January 2021. The butadiene market has changed from the downturn in January to a strong upward trend. Supported by the rising atmosphere in the downstream rubber industry, the butadiene market is expected to be bullish in the short term, the supplier’s price is constantly rising, and the holding companies are obviously waiting for the market to rise, jointly driving the market higher.

 

In terms of enterprises, Sinopec East China butadiene supply price has increased by 2400 yuan / ton month on month, with 8500 yuan / ton since February 26; Yantai Wanhua 50000 ton / year butadiene extraction unit is in normal operation, and the goods are exported normally, with the price at 8750 yuan / ton as of February 25; Shenhua Ningmei 64000 ton / year butadiene unit is in stable operation, and some goods are exported, with the price at 8510 yuan / ton as of February 26 Fushun Petrochemical’s 160000 T / a butadiene plant is planned to be shut down for maintenance in mid and early April; Jilin Petrochemical’s 190000 T / a butadiene plant is planned to be shut down for maintenance in early June; Zhenhai Petrochemical’s 165000 T / a butadiene plant is planned to be shut down for maintenance around April 5, lasting about 15 days.

 

External price: as of March 5, the external price of butadiene in Asia rose: FOB Korea closed at 1035-1045 US dollars / ton, up 80 US dollars / ton; CFR China closed at 1075-1085 US dollars / ton, up 80 US dollars / ton. The external price of butadiene in Europe rose: FOB Rotterdam closed at 895-905 US dollars / ton, up 120 US dollars / ton; FD northwest Europe closed at 725-735 euro / ton, up 60 euro / ton.

 

At present, the high support of production enterprises is expected to be strong in the short term. In March, with the restart of Yangzi Petrochemical’s butadiene plant and the delay of Zhenhai Refinery’s unit maintenance, the reduction of market supply may not be as expected. Business community butadiene analysts expect short-term domestic butadiene market consolidation.
