According to the data monitored by the business community, the average ex factory tax inclusive price of light potassium carbonate in Shanxi was 9162.50 yuan/ton at the beginning of the week, and 9175.00 yuan/ton at the weekend, down 0.14%, and the current price rose 13.98% year on year.
The price of potassium carbonate fell this week. It can be seen from the above figure that the potassium carbonate market has been declining recently, and this week the market continues to decline slightly. Recently, new sources of imported potassium chloride are being supplemented, but the supply of special varieties in some regions is slightly tight. The downstream demand is not good, and the purchase of just needed goods is maintained. The transactions in the potassium carbonate market are light, and the market fluctuates and falls. According to the statistics of the business agency, the quotation range of domestic industrial grade potassium carbonate mainstream factory this week is about 9000-9200 yuan/ton (the quotation is for reference only), which varies according to the procurement situation.
Recently, the domestic market price of imported potassium chloride has fallen, the downstream demand has weakened, and the purchase of just needed potassium chloride is the main demand, and the market turnover is poor. At present, the sales price of 60% domestic potassium crystals in the market is mostly 3400-3800 yuan/ton. The price of 57% of the powder in Qinghai small factories is 3000-3200 yuan/ton, and the price of 62% of Russian white potassium in border trade areas is 3300-3400 yuan/ton. The price of 62% white potassium at the port is mostly 3450-3600 yuan/ton (the price is reduced by 50 yuan/ton). The price of large particles at the port is mostly 3450-3500 yuan/ton (down 50 yuan/ton), and the price of 60% red powder is 3800-3850 yuan/ton.
Recently, new orders for border trade of potassium chloride have not been signed, and the supply of goods may be short, but the downstream demand is general. It is expected that the price of potassium carbonate will decline slightly in the short term, and the long-term market still needs to wait and see.
