On August 18, the fluorite commodity index was 108.55, unchanged from yesterday, down 14.86% from the cyclical peak of 127.49 points (2019-01-03), and up 120.59% from the lowest point of 49.21 on December 18, 2016. (Note: Period refers to 2011-09-01 to date)
According to statistics, the domestic fluorite price trend slightly declined, the average domestic fluorite price was 3075 yuan/ton on the 19th day. Recently, the domestic fluorite plant started normally, the mine and flotation plant in the field started normally, the fluorite supply in the field was sufficient, and the hydrofluoric acid price in the downstream was lower recently. For the fluorite market, the price trend of fluorite market was on demand. Slide downward. Recent downstream installation start-up situation is general, fluorite spot supply is normal, terminal downstream receipt is poor, resulting in a decline in market prices. As of 19 th, the price of 97 fluorite wet powder in Inner Mongolia was 2800-3000 yuan/ton, the mainstream of 97 fluorite wet powder in Fujian was 2900-3200 yuan/ton, the price of 97 fluorite wet powder in Henan was 2900-3200 yuan/ton, the price of 97 fluorite wet powder in Jiangxi was 2900-3200 yuan/ton, and the price trend of fluorite fell back.
The market price of hydrofluoric acid in the downstream of fluorite maintained a low trend. The domestic market price of hydrofluoric acid was 11 430 yuan/ton as of the 19th day. The decline of the market price of hydrofluoric acid has a negative impact on the upstream fluorite market. However, the recent start-up of hydrofluoric acid plant is general, the demand for fluorite has weakened, and the price of fluorite has slightly decreased. Recent downstream refrigerant market trading market is general, domestic refrigerant R22 market shocks down, from the market supply point of view, the production enterprise device is stable, but the pressure of goods is too high, inventory expansion appears to a certain extent, the enterprise aims to make profits to deliver goods. The downstream weakness continues, the peak season of refrigerants has passed, and demand has only decreased but not increased. The price of domestic large enterprises has maintained the level of 17,000-18,000 yuan/ton. Domestic market price trend of R134a shocks, production enterprises equipment start-up rate remains low, refrigerant market demand is general, manufacturers mainly export. However, the price of on-site transactions does not change much. Businessmen buy on demand. At the end of the peak season, the demand downstream of the terminal decreases but does not increase. The price affected by the fluorite market is slightly lower.
Overall, the downstream industry is slightly lower, coupled with sufficient supply of fluorite market, the downstream refrigerant industry demand is not good, Business Analyst Chen Ling believes that the price of fluorite market may be slightly lower.
