On January 28, the fluorite commodity index was 123.51, which was the same as yesterday. It was 3.12% lower than the cyclical peak of 127.49 points (2019-01-03), and 150.99% higher than the lowest point of 49.21 on December 18, 2016. (Note: Period refers to 2011-09-01 to date)
According to statistics, the recent domestic fluorite price trend has been slightly lower, the average domestic fluorite price as of 29 days is 3510 yuan/ton. Due to the impact of strict environmental protection inspection, some domestic fluorite plants have been shut down in the near future, while the supply of fluorite in the field has been relatively reduced, but the recent downstream market is not good, and the price of fluorite market has slightly declined. In addition to the low temperature, the low start-up rate of fluorite flotation units in the North has aggravated the shortage of domestic fluorite supply. In the southern fluorite market, the start-up of devices has also been reduced, and the supply of fluorite in the field is tight, but the downstream terminal receipt is not active, resulting in a slight drop in market prices. As of the 29th, the price of 97 fluorite wet powder in Inner Mongolia was 3200-3600 yuan/ton, the mainstream of 97 fluorite wet powder negotiations in Fujian was 3400-3700 yuan/ton, the price of 97 fluorite wet powder in Henan was 3300-3600 yuan/ton, and the price of 97 fluorite wet powder in Jiangxi was 3200-3600 yuan/ton.
The price of hydrofluoric acid in the downstream fluorite market declined, with the domestic market price of hydrofluoric acid at 12333.33 yuan/ton as of the 29th day. The market price of hydrofluoric acid slightly declined, while the domestic fluorite price market declined. In addition, the upstream refrigerant products have more maintenance devices, the demand for upstream fluorite and hydrofluoric acid has weakened, the recent downstream refrigerant trading market has declined, and the price of hydrofluoric acid products has slightly declined. Recent market of refrigerant downstream terminal market is cool, R22 refrigerant plant surface starts at 70%, R22 market device start-up rate is temporarily stable, the main production enterprise bulk water factory offer price is 17500-18500 yuan/ton, but the production enterprise does not have bulk water spot, mainly with a small number of cylinders shipped. In addition, the actual demand side of the market has declined, and the shipment market trend is poor. The domestic market price of R134a is slightly lower, the start-up rate of production enterprises is lower, the market demand for refrigerants is weakened, and manufacturers mainly export their products. However, the on-site transaction price does not change much, and the merchants purchase on demand. Recently, due to the impact of equipment maintenance, the upstream market demand for hydrofluoric acid has weakened. Generally speaking, there are many downstream negative factors, but because of the poor start-up of fluorite market devices and the high price of fluorite, Business Analyst Chen Ling believes that the price of fluorite market may be slightly lower due to the weakening downstream demand.
