Liquid ammonia supply increased slightly over the weekend and the market stabilized

This week, the domestic liquid ammonia market remained stable in most regions. Shandong and Hebei regions also ended the rebound, and the price was mainly stabilized. According to the monitoring of the business agency, the increase of liquid ammonia was 0.32% in the week of the 24th, and the mainstream market quotation was 2850-3050 yuan / ton.



After two consecutive weeks of upward price of liquid ammonia in Shandong, the price has slightly stabilized this week. Before that, the major plants were still in the maintenance period. Most of the liquid ammonia were used by themselves, and a small amount of liquid ammonia was mainly exported. The manufacturer’s inventory pressure was not great, and the enterprise’s quotation continued to rise, with an increase of more than 300 yuan / ton for two consecutive weeks. This week, the manufacturer’s devices returned to normal, the export volume continued to increase, and the ammonia quantity in the region gradually returned to normal, Therefore, the price mainly stabilizes, and the possibility of price callback with the accumulation of inventory can not be ruled out in the later period.


In other regions, the price of liquid ammonia in Hebei has remained stable, but the price has slowed down. Affected by the low level of ammonia in Shandong, the amount of ammonia sold by Shandong manufacturers to this region is small, and the amount of ammonia in Hebei remains controllable. Therefore, the price of liquid ammonia in Hebei continues to be firm, and there is still a slight upward trend in some parts, but the range is obviously slowing down. At around 50 yuan / ton, the current market price has already reached a certain level It recovered to the level at the beginning of July. At present, the Cangzhou unit of a plant in Hebei still produces a small amount of liquid ammonia, so the pressure is not big. The amount of liquid ammonia in the region basically maintains a balance between supply and demand, and the current price is 2950-3100 yuan / ton.



Looking at the future market, the business agency believes that at the end of the month, most of the liquid ammonia Market stabilized, and the current round of rising market was basically ended. However, it is expected that the ammonia volume will remain moderate in the short term. Therefore, it is expected that the domestic liquid ammonia market will consolidate at a high level in the near future, and the trend of various regions may appear certain differentiation. The market is mainly affected by large plants. With the recovery of devices in Shandong area, the amount of ammonia will gradually accumulate Product, the price may be subject to certain restrictions. From the demand side, the downstream still maintains rational and rigid demand. Although urea has winter storage, the social inventory is still high and the price support is limited. As far as the downstream fertilizer market is concerned, it is still in the autumn fertilizer production and sales peak season, and the operating rate is expected to remain stable and high. For example, the export price of diammonium phosphate continues to rise, and the delivery form of compound fertilizer will continue to improve. However, due to the influence of overseas epidemic situation, the export volume may not be greatly improved, and it is still driven by domestic rigid demand. Therefore, the price of liquid ammonia will maintain range fluctuation due to the influence of supply and demand.

PTA price in raw material market was adjusted by shock. As of August 28, the average market price was 3574 yuan / ton, up 0.1% compared with the beginning of the month, and decreased by 31.69% year on year. In August, PTA price has a significant impact on the supply side fluctuation. Since the beginning of the month, PTA plant began to be overhauled, mainly involving Ningbo Taihua, hailun petrochemical, Honggang petrochemical, Yangzi Petrochemical, etc. at the same time, fuhaichuang and Huabin Petrochemical also successively reduced the load, and the operating load of PTA industry dropped to around 82% within the month. However, with the negative impact of the restart of Ningbo Taihua and Yangzi petrochemical plants, the price began to weaken. Near the end of the month, some PTA units stopped short, the production and sales of polyester plants recovered periodically, and the hurricane made a certain upward boost to crude oil. PTA rebounded slightly. However, the market’s worries about terminal demand did not fade, and under the pressure of PTA social inventory, it finally showed a weak state.


Sodium Molybdate

At the end of the month, affected by the preferential promotion of raw materials, downstream textile enterprises appropriately replenished their goods on demand, and local transactions were hot. At the same time, with the coming of the “golden nine silver ten” textile sales season, the overall orders of traditional textile market have increased significantly in recent years. The listed varieties of garment lining and bag lining auxiliary materials with polyester filament as the main raw material in the traditional market of China Light and textile city have increased, the number of fabric proofing in autumn and winter continues to increase slightly, and the number of orders increased. Domestic trade orders and foreign trade orders have improved. In terms of foreign trade orders, orders from Europe and the Middle East still account for a relatively large proportion. Textile market ushered in a period of warming market, loom operating load increased to 65%. The production of China’s textile industry recovered steadily, and the decline rate narrowed month by month. According to the data of the National Bureau of statistics, from January to July, the industrial added value of textile industry above Designated Size in China decreased by 6.1% year-on-year, 0.6 percentage points lower than that in January June.


From the perspective of textile and clothing retail, the total retail sales of textile and clothing reached 88.9 billion yuan in July, down 2.5% compared with the same period last year. From January to July, China’s total retail sales of textile and clothing exceeded 595.9 billion yuan, down 17.5% year-on-year. In terms of export, according to the latest statistics of the General Administration of Customs of China, in July 2020, China’s textile and clothing export volume was 31.294 billion US dollars, a month on month increase of 7.79%. Among them, the export volume of textiles (including textile yarn, fabrics and products) was 15.976.9 billion US dollars, down 1.11% month on month; the export volume of clothing (including clothing and clothing accessories) was 15.3175 billion US dollars, an increase of 18.97% on a month on month basis. From January to July, China’s textile and clothing exports amounted to 156.482 billion US dollars, an increase of 5.57% over the same period of last year, of which the cumulative export of textiles was US $90.080.4 billion, with a year-on-year increase of 31.25%; and that of clothing was 66.402 billion US dollars, a year-on-year decrease of 16.58%.

Xia Ting, an analyst at the business club, believes that whether the demand side continues to pick up remains to be seen. At present, the loom operating load is at a low point in the same period in recent years, and the grey cloth inventory in Shengze area of Jiangsu Province is still at a historical high of about 45 days. At the same time, the textile enterprises at the end of the industrial chain are affected by the high inventory of finished products and the prolonged sales collection cycle, resulting in increased capital pressure. In addition, the export resistance of textile and clothing in overseas market is larger. In the short term, the periodic recovery of the current demand side will boost the confidence of the textile market. With the advent of the “golden nine silver decade”, it will be further improved. Therefore, the price of polyester filament in September is likely to remain volatile and upward.

Supply over demand continued, acetic acid market performance weak

According to the monitoring of the bulk data of the business agency, the domestic acetic acid market continued to weaken. As of August 27, the average price of acetic acid in East China was about 2360 yuan / ton, down 10.38% from 2633 yuan / ton at the beginning of the month. At present, there are 2300-2400 yuan / ton in Shandong, 2250-2350 yuan / ton in Jiangsu, 2400-2500 yuan / ton in Zhejiang, 2150-2200 yuan / ton in Henan, 2400-2500 yuan / ton in Hebei and 2000 yuan / ton in Northwest China.

At present, the overall domestic acetic acid operation is stable, the spot supply is sufficient, and the downstream market demand is flat, which leads to the situation that the supply exceeds the demand in the industry, and the enterprises are forced to sell by bidding, and the trade atmosphere in the industry continues to be cold. Enterprises mainly pay attention to the delivery of contract orders. Although the inventory of some enterprises decreases slightly, the overall inventory of the industry is still at a high level.



In terms of the upstream market, the methanol market continued to decline, and the downstream market’s intention to receive goods was flat. Although some enterprises successively issued maintenance plans, they did not have a substantial positive impact on the market. At present, it is about 1615 yuan / ton. In terms of downstream, the downstream industries of acetic acid, such as vinyl acetate and acetate, are running weakly and stably. The demand of downstream market is low. Enterprises mainly digest inventory, and the atmosphere of bearish in the industry is obvious.


In recent years, the international acetic acid market has mostly maintained a weak and stable operation, among which the Asian acetic acid market quotation is about 280-320 US dollars / ton; the European market is about 530 euro / ton; the North American market is about 440 US dollars / ton.


Acetic acid analysts of the business club believe that at present, domestic acetic acid enterprises mainly focus on digesting contracts, and there is not enough new orders. As Hualu Hengsheng resumes production in the near future, the supply in the industry will be further improved, and the situation of supply exceeding demand will be intensified. It is expected that the domestic acetic acid enterprises will operate in a weak situation in the short term.
