On September 18, the acetic acid market continued to rise

Trade name: acetic acid

Latest price (September 18): 7250.00 yuan / ton

Key points of analysis: according to the bulk data monitoring of business society, the acetic acid market was sorted upward. On September 18, the average production price of acetic acid was 7250 yuan / ton, up 2.84% from the previous working day. During the maintenance of acetic acid plants of manufacturers in North China and Northwest China, the market price kept rising, the production of limited films in Shandong and Jiangsu was reduced, the enterprise inventory was tight, the market supply was tight, and the market had been stable before. Under the condition of multi factory maintenance, traders wanted to stir up, the quotation in East and South China followed up, and the holiday came. Considering the downstream stock up, There was a strong intention to support the price on the site, and the quotation of acetic acid enterprises continued to rise.

Future forecast: the supply of acetic acid in the domestic market continues to be tight, the manufacturer’s devices have not been recovered, the market supply is insufficient, and the quotation of enterprises keeps rising. Although the downstream purchase is rational, the operator’s mentality is obvious. It is expected that the future market will be strong at a high level, and the downstream transaction will be paid more attention to.

Violent rise of raw materials drives the price of phosphoric acid soaring (9.13-9.16)

1、 Price trend

According to the bulk data list of business society, the average price of domestic phosphoric acid on September 16 was 11400 yuan / ton, an increase of 2700 yuan compared with the price of 8700 yuan / ton at the beginning of the week, an increase of 31.03% during the week and 136.68% compared with the same period last year.

2、 Market analysis

The phosphoric acid market continued to rise this week, with an increase of more than 30% within the week, and the price quickly rose to a high level. It is reported that the voltage load of raw yellow phosphorus enterprises is limited, the production capacity is reduced, and the spot tension is intensified. In addition, the relevant notice on energy consumption dual control issued by the national development and Reform Commission recently has boosted the price of raw yellow phosphorus, which has soared, and the highest price has reached 60000 yuan / ton, and one product is difficult to find. The phosphoric acid market is closely followed by the rise due to the strong support of cost. One price a day, and now the quotation of enterprises is basically more than 10000 yuan, The highest price is 18000 yuan / ton, rising to a new height, and the industry has a strong bullish mentality. At present, raw material goods are tight and the price is high, so that phosphoric acid manufacturers have to reduce production and stop production. The tight supply situation in the field continues. Phosphoric acid enterprises suspend quotation more. Watch the price trend of raw materials and hear about the purchase and sale or the need for auction. We can think of the tight supply. Therefore, the short-term phosphoric acid price is easy to rise but difficult to fall. According to the monitoring of the business community, the quotation in Jiangsu is 18000 yuan / ton, that in Hubei is 15000 yuan / ton, that in Guangzhou is about 14000 yuan / ton, that in Sichuan is 10900-18000 yuan / ton, that in Beijing is 9000 yuan / ton, and that in Fujian is 10800 yuan / ton. The price of phosphoric acid in various places has increased significantly.

Yellow phosphorus, the market price of yellow phosphorus rose this week, yellow phosphorus enterprises limited voltage load, reduced production capacity and intensified spot tension. The price of upstream phosphorus ore and coke increased, and the price of downstream phosphoric acid increased all the way. The downstream began to purchase yellow phosphorus at a high price. The acceptance of high price yellow phosphorus was high. On the whole, the market confidence was good and the upstream and downstream support was strong. It is expected that the market price of yellow phosphorus will continue to rise in the short term.

For phosphate rock, on September 16, the reference price of phosphate rock was 643.33, up 10.92% compared with September 1 (580.00). This year, the market demand for ammonium phosphate continued to improve, giving some support to the demand for phosphate rock. The supply of phosphate rock is still tight in the short term. Therefore, the phosphate rock analysts of business society believe that China’s phosphate rock market will mainly focus on high-level consolidation in the short term.

Ammonium phosphate, the current market situation of Monoammonium is poor. Although the support of raw materials is good, the terminal demand is weak and there is still inventory. The price of monoammonium phosphate is expected to operate weakly and stably in the short term. At present, the external demand for diammonium is acceptable and the domestic market is weak. It is expected that diammonium phosphate will mainly operate stably in the short term.

3、 Future forecast

According to the phosphoric acid analyst of the chemical branch of business society, the raw material price is high at present, the phosphoric acid enterprises have low operation due to the cost, the inventory is not under pressure, and the tight supply situation is difficult to recover in the short term. It is expected that the phosphoric acid price is still the main actor above, and we need to pay close attention to the trend of raw material price.

On the 14th, the ex factory price of n-propanol of large manufacturers in Shandong was 7900 yuan / ton, a slight increase of 50 yuan / ton compared with last weekend. The slight upward price had little impact on n-propanol holders. The reference price of n-propanol market in Shandong was around 7800-8000 yuan / ton. On the 15th, Shandong large factory recalled the ex factory price of n-propanol to 7850 yuan / ton, and the overall market fluctuated slightly. Nanjing Rongxin Chemical Co., Ltd., an important domestic n-propanol production enterprise in Jiangsu, currently operates normally. The ex factory quotation of n-propanol refers to 8500 yuan / ton, and the price is the same as that at the beginning of the month. At present, as of the 15th, the domestic market demand for n-propanol is mostly just for procurement, and the market trading atmosphere is normal.

Due to the different actual development of chemical industry in various countries, there are great differences in the application of n-propanol.

Dimethyl ether prices rose unstoppably

According to the data monitoring of traditional business agency, the average price of dimethyl ether in Henan market was 3562.50 yuan / ton on September 1 and 4276.25 yuan / ton on September 14, with a half month increase of 20.04%, an increase of 71.51% compared with the same period last year.

As of September 14, the domestic market prices of dimethyl ether in various regions are as follows:

region Specifications date offer

Shandong region Mass fraction of dimethyl ether: ≥ 99.0% September 14th 4540 yuan / ton

Hebei region Mass fraction of dimethyl ether: ≥ 99.0% September 14th 4480 yuan / ton

Henan region Mass fraction of dimethyl ether: ≥ 99.0% September 14th 4280-4320 yuan / ton

It is obvious from the trend chart that the dimethyl ether Market was in a tepid stage from early August to early September. However, on September 6, the dimethyl ether market began to rise strongly, and the quotation increased sharply one after another. The ex factory quotation in Henan, the main production area, increased by nearly 20%, and the price was close to 4500 yuan / ton. Taking Henan xinlianxin as an example, the ex factory quotation of Henan xinlianxin dimethyl ether was 3520 yuan / ton on September 5 and 4280 yuan / ton on September 14, with a total increase of 760 yuan / ton.

The sharp rise mainly comes from the raw material methanol market. Due to the influence of dual control, the supply in the mainland is limited, the inventory of enterprises is reduced, the coal price has hit a record high again, the cost support is obvious, the methanol futures price has risen sharply, and the domestic methanol spot market has followed the “soaring man”. The methanol market rose sharply, and the strong futures led the national long sentiment. The inventory of mainstream production plants remained low, the pressure was difficult to show, and there was a demand for goods in the downstream, which supported the market situation in the main methanol production areas to continue to rise sharply. With the strong support of raw methanol, the price of dimethyl ether rose sharply. Secondly, the center of gravity of the liquefied gas civil market has shifted upward, and the supply of Henan xinlianxin has decreased, which has brought certain benefits to the market. In the early stage of the downstream, the market entry is more positive with the buying mentality, but with the rising price, the downstream has limited ability to accept high prices, cautious mentality, and limited improvement of terminal demand, and the market entry enthusiasm is weaker than that in the early stage. On September 14, although the market price in Henan was still rising, the increase narrowed. At present, the upstream inventory is mostly in a controllable state, and the mentality is relatively strong.

In the cost methanol market, the negotiated price in the methanol market in central Shandong increased by 2950-2990 yuan / ton and sent to spot exchange. The price of local methanol factories in central Shandong increased by 3000-3050 yuan / ton, and the transaction was still good. The reference price of methanol market in Dongying, Shandong Province is 2960-3000 yuan / ton, which is delivered to spot exchange, and the trading situation is relatively general. The negotiated price in the methanol market in southern Shandong is 2950 yuan / ton, and the nearby factory provides cash exchange. Linyi receives the local goods to negotiate the price to 2910-2930 yuan / ton and delivers them to cash exchange. There are few Logistics offers. The local supply is tight, but the downstream is at a loss, and the enthusiasm for receiving goods is general. The methanol market in Henan fell slightly, and the on-site trading was acceptable. The bidding transaction price of Henan’s main enterprises fell slightly, and the price refers to 2860-2885 yuan / ton, and the factory withdraws cash exchange; The focus of Luoyang market negotiation fell to 2820-2880 yuan / ton in a narrow range.

At present, the rising cost of methanol and liquefied gas civil market has brought obvious support to the dimethyl ether Market, but the current terminal demand is generally improved, the downstream has limited ability to accept high prices, has a cautious attitude, has a weaker enthusiasm for entering the market than in the early stage, and the manufacturer’s inventory is mostly controllable and has a strong heart. On the whole, the DME market may continue to rise in the short term, but the range has narrowed. We still need to pay attention to the change of raw methanol.
