According to the data monitored by the business community, at the beginning of the week, the price of the first grade industrial potassium nitrate in Shanxi was 6675.00 yuan/ton, and at the weekend, the price of the first grade industrial potassium nitrate in Shanxi was 6550.00 yuan/ton, down 1.87%, and up 20.18% year on year.
The domestic potassium nitrate market fell slightly this week. It can be seen from the figure above that the potassium nitrate market declined in the past two months, and the market continued to fall this week. The market price of raw potassium chloride is still falling, and new orders for border trade have been signed, among which traders have suffered serious losses. The equipment of the domestic manufacturer is normally started and delivered according to the order. Downstream procurement remained just in demand, market transactions were cold and quiet, and the market for potassium nitrate declined. According to the statistics of the business community, the domestic mainstream potassium nitrate manufacturers quoted 6200-6800 yuan/ton this week (the quotation is for reference only), and the quotation varies according to the procurement situation.
Recently, the domestic market price of imported potassium chloride fell. At present, the market price of 60% salt lake crystal is 3750-3850 yuan/ton (down 50 yuan/ton). The price of 57% of the powder in Qinghai small factories is 3500-3600 yuan/ton (down 100 yuan/ton), and the price of 62% of white potassium in border trade areas is 3850-4950 yuan/ton (down 50-100 yuan/ton). The price of 62% white potassium at the port is 3900-4150 yuan/ton. The price of large particles at the port is mostly 4000-4100 yuan/ton, and the price of 60% red powder is 4000 yuan/ton.
In the near future, the domestic potassium chloride market continues to maintain a sluggish trend, and it is difficult for downstream factories to increase their purchasing strength significantly. It is expected that the price of potassium nitrate will decline mainly in the short term, while the long-term market still needs to wait and see.
