On August 20, the hydrofluoric acid commodity index was 103.72, which was the same as yesterday. It was 26.14% lower than the peak of 140.43 points in the cycle (2018-02-21), and 93.54% higher than the low of 53.59 points on November 30, 2016. (Note: Period refers to 2011-09-01 to date)
According to statistics, the price trend of domestic hydrofluoric acid market is temporarily stable on August 20. Up to now, the domestic market price of hydrofluoric acid is 11 430 yuan/ton, and the domestic starting rate of hydrofluoric acid is less than 60%. Enterprises reflect that there is sufficient supply of hydrofluoric acid on the spot at present, and the recent on-site shopping situation is general. Recently, due to poor downstream demand, part of hydrofluoric acid is in short supply. Manufacturers cut prices slightly, and the market price of hydrofluoric acid fell. At present, the mainstream of hydrofluoric acid negotiations in the southern region is about 10500-11000 yuan/ton, while the price of hydrofluoric acid in the northern market is between 11000-11500 yuan/ton. Domestic hydrofluoric acid market price declined, spot supply is normal, but the demand situation is poor, hydrofluoric acid market price trend is temporarily stable.
The price of fluorite in the upstream slightly declined. As of the 20th day, the price of fluorite was 3068.75 yuan/ton. The downward price of raw materials in the upstream had a negative impact on the hydrofluoric acid market, and the trend of the hydrofluoric acid market was temporarily stable. The downstream refrigerant product plant starts at a low level. The demand for upstream fluorite and hydrofluoric acid is poor. Recent downstream refrigerant trading market is general, and the price of hydrofluoric acid products fluctuates. 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 16,000-18,000 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 purchase on demand. At the end of the peak season, the downstream demand of terminals decreases but does not increase. The downstream demand is not good, and the price trend of hydrofluoric acid market is low. However, the on-site transaction price does not change much. Businessmen purchase on demand. Recently, due to the normal supply of goods and poor downstream demand, the market price of hydrofluoric acid has declined.
Refrigerant field turnover is poor, refrigerant industry equipment start-up rate remains low, for upstream hydrofluoric acid market demand is limited, hydrofluoric acid spot supply is normal, Business Analyst Chen Ling believes that the hydrofluoric acid market may be slightly lower.
