On May 6, the fluorite commodity index was 90.64, down 6.44 points from yesterday, 28.90% from 127.49 (2019-01-03), the highest point in the cycle, and 84.19% higher than 49.21, the lowest point on December 18, 2016. (Note: cycle refers to 2011-09-01 to now)
According to statistics, the price trend of domestic fluorite continues to decline. As of 7 days, the average price of domestic fluorite is 2577.78 yuan / ton. In recent years, the operation rate of domestic fluorite plant is relatively high, the mine and flotation plant in the site are gradually resumed, the supply of fluorite in the site is sufficient, and the price of hydrofluoric acid in the downstream is declining in recent years. For the purchase on demand in fluorite market, the situation of fluorite in the site is poor, and the price trend of fluorite market is declining. In the near future, the operation rate of downstream units is relatively low, the spot supply of fluorite in the site is sufficient, and the downstream terminal purchases on demand, resulting in a slight decline in market price. As of July 7, the price of 97 fluorite wet powder in Inner Mongolia was 2400-2600 yuan / ton, that of 97 fluorite wet powder in Fujian was 2500-2700 yuan / ton, that of 97 fluorite wet powder in Henan was 2400-2700 yuan / ton, that of 97 fluorite wet powder in Jiangxi was 2500-2700 yuan / ton, and that of fluorite continued to decline.
The market price trend of hydrofluoric acid in the downstream of fluorite fell. As of the 7th day, the domestic market price of hydrofluoric acid was 9130 yuan / ton. The decline of the market price of hydrofluoric acid had a certain negative impact on the upstream market of fluorite. However, the recent operation of hydrofluoric acid plant was generally, the demand for fluorite was normal, the supply of goods in the site was sufficient, and the price of fluorite continued to decline. In recent years, the sales of the automobile industry has been in a downturn, and the trend of the downstream refrigerant market is poor. The demand for the refrigerant has been declining. The special events abroad are serious. The export of the refrigerant terminal is not smooth, and it is mainly supplied to the domestic market. However, the domestic air conditioning industry starts at a low level, and the demand for after-sales maintenance is weak. Overall, the domestic and foreign demand is not as expected. At present, the refrigerant R22 manufacturer’s load is reduced, the inventory is in a reasonable range, and the price is under pressure due to the drag of demand. However, the situation of market price or not is obvious. The mainstream price of R22 in domestic large enterprises is 15000-17000 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 fluorite market continues to decline.
On the whole, the market of downstream refrigerant industry is weak, the supply of fluorite is sufficient, and the recent price trend of hydrofluoric acid market is falling. Chen Ling, an analyst of business agency, thinks that the market price of fluorite may continue to decline slightly in the short term.
