Recent positive factors


1. The silicon production in Yunnan has been reduced


On the news, Yunnan Dehong silicon plant started to reduce production orderly in the middle and early November due to power restriction factors. The reduction and shutdown of metal silicon factories in Yunnan increased, and the regional output reduction was expected to intensify.


2. Tight spot at trading end


At present, there are not many spot metal silicon stocks available for trading in the market, and the market is in a good situation. The stock holders are not worried about the situation. The willingness of some large manufacturers to raise prices is increased, which encourages the market to be bullish.


3. Strong downstream demand


The demand of downstream aluminum alloy plants is strong, and the price of silicone DMC is soaring, which directly leads to the raw material market. In the near future, the downstream reserve capacity has increased and the demand is strong.

4. The export volume of silicon metal increased in October


According to customs data, the export volume of silicon metal increased by 10.6% year-on-year in 2020.


Future forecast


The rise of downstream price is beneficial to the price of raw materials to a certain extent; combined with the recent tight spot situation, it is expected that the rising state of silicon metal price in the near future will probably continue.
