Sulfamic acid 

This week, the price trend of domestic ammonium nitrate market rose. The start-up of domestic ammonium nitrate manufacturers declined, and the supply of ammonium nitrate in the field was tight. Some manufacturers reported that the situation of goods taking was improved, and the price trend of manufacturers increased slightly. Recently, the supply of on-site goods was tight, the transportation was normal, and the market price of ammonium nitrate went up. Recently, the shipment market of ammonium nitrate manufacturers is normal, downstream procurement is on demand. Domestic ammonium nitrate manufacturers have started to decline, and some manufacturers have increased their prices. Up to now, the mainstream negotiation in Shaanxi is 2300-2500 yuan / ton, that in Shandong is 2100-2200 yuan / ton, and that in Hebei is 2600-2800 yuan / ton.

sulphamic acid

The price trend of upstream liquid ammonia rose slightly this week, and the price trend of liquid ammonia rose 0.21% this week. The start-up of liquid ammonia plant was normal, the spot supply was normal, and the market price of liquid ammonia rose slightly. However, due to the impact of inventory pressure, the liquid ammonia plants in Shandong are stable, and the price of liquid ammonia has returned to stable. It is expected that the domestic liquid ammonia market will not change much in the near future, and the trend of various regions will be differentiated to some extent, which may lead to partial imbalance of supply due to the maintenance of some units in the short term. On the demand side, the downstream procurement may slow down in the later stage, resulting in some pressure in the later stage of liquid ammonia supply. Domestic liquid ammonia supply pressure still exists, especially the regional imbalance, which leads to greater supply pressure in some regions. In terms of demand, the peak season of downstream fertilizer demand is no longer, the upstream liquid ammonia market price rises slightly, and the market price trend of ammonium nitrate rises slightly.

 

In recent years, the demand of the downstream civil explosive industry is limited, and the production and sales of nitro compound fertilizer are in general, and the price trend of raw material market remains low. However, the spot supply of ammonium nitrate is tight, which has a certain positive support for the ammonium nitrate Market. The ammonium nitrate analysts of the business community believe that the market price of ammonium nitrate may rise slightly in the future.

sulphamic acid

At present, the price of activated carbon in China has dropped slightly. At present, the ex factory price of activated carbon for coconut shell water purification in East China is about 7000-12000 yuan / T; the downstream demand for activated carbon in China is poor, and the price is going down, and the trading atmosphere is still weak. Most of the deliveries are made according to the order, and the atmosphere of cautious wait-and-see remains unchanged.

 

The cost pressure of coconut shell, fruit shell, charcoal and other main raw materials in the upstream of activated carbon is supported, and the demand is fair; the cost support of coal based carbon raw material is weak. The downstream power, medicine and other demand industries collect goods according to the order. The purchase market of activated carbon for air purification and water purification is favorable. The environmental protection policies boost the activated carbon market, and the activated carbon market is stable.

 

Forecast: the activated carbon market will move goods on demand, purchase basic small orders to meet normal production, most traders maintain shipment and reduce warehouse, and the quotation will continue to fluctuate and tend to fall.

2、 Market analysis

 

sulphamic acid

In August, the situation of refrigerants was difficult. Due to the continuous weak demand and shortage of raw materials, the price of refrigerants went down and the focus was low. This month, the air conditioning industry began to enter the off-season, the production of production enterprises decreased sharply, the demand for refrigerants was scarce, and the turnover was weak. At the same time, there was a lot of rain in this month, and the after-sales market showed a general performance with poor demand. Moreover, the export recovery was slow, and the export orders decreased year on year, so the demand side was difficult to boost the market. The market price of fluorite and anhydrous hydrofluoric acid at the raw material end declined, and the chloroform market was running strongly, which weakened the support for refrigerants. On the whole, the cost side and demand side of refrigerant are weak, the start-up of refrigerant manufacturers is not high, and the price is likely to continue to fall.

 

R22, the price of refrigerant R22 rose first and then fell in August, with a slight increase of 1.03% in the whole month. The cost side of chloroform industry support is OK, but the demand follow-up is not enough, the demand side air conditioning and after-sales market performance is poor. Although R22 has good quota support and manufacturers support the price, but the shipment is under pressure, and the enterprise price has fallen. After the middle of this month, R22 has a steady downward trend, and some enterprises’ prices are still running stably. However, most of the actual transactions yield profits, and the trading center begins to move downward. As of August 31, the prices of mainstream manufacturers in R22 market were 15500-16500 yuan / ton, and the transaction price was about 15000-15500 yuan / ton.

 

R134a, the price of refrigerant R134a fell to the bottom in August, with a sharp drop of 6.95% in the whole month. On the cost side, hydrofluoric acid support is weakened, and the peak stock season of automobile industry has passed. The purchase of refrigerants has been sharply reduced. There are few new orders, and the export recovery is slow. Enterprises are under pressure to ship. Prices have dropped sharply. Some of them have the phenomenon of cost inversion. At the same time, there are plans for new production capacity to enter the market. At that time, the contradiction between supply and demand will intensify, and the focus of R134a will continue to move down. According to the price monitoring of the business agency, as of August 25, the price of the mainstream manufacturers in the refrigerant R134a market is about 15000 yuan / ton, and the actual transaction price is about 14500-15000 yuan / ton, and the price is down.

The price trend of fluorite in the upstream and domestic fluorite market fluctuated. Recently, some manufacturers reported that the goods were not in good condition, the downstream demand was not improved, and the fluorite price changed little. Domestic fluorite manufacturers have been operating stably, the on-site mines and flotation devices have been operating normally, and the fluorite in the yard is not well stocked, and the market price of fluorite is slightly lower. The market price of fluorite may decrease slightly in the short term.

 

Sulfamic acid 

As for hydrofluoric acid, on August 31, the mainstream price of domestic anhydrous hydrofluoric acid manufacturers was 8000-8500 yuan / T, and the ex factory price of domestic manufacturers dropped slightly. The domestic hydrofluoric acid manufacturers had a general operating rate, and the supply of goods on site was normal. Affected by the decline of fluorite price, however, the demand of downstream refrigerant industry was not good, and the on-site procurement was mainly based on demand, and the on-site price was expected to decline in the future.

 

Trichloromethane: at present, the market of chloroform in Shandong Province is at a high level, and the overall operation of enterprises has reached a high level, and the market supply is expected to continue to increase. Due to the high price and flat demand in the downstream market, there is a strong wait-and-see atmosphere in the industry, and some of the shippers have a certain bearish mentality. At present, the quoted price of Shandong is about 1880-1910 yuan / ton, Jiangxi Liwen is about 2300 yuan / ton, and Jiangsu is about 2650 yuan / ton. It is expected to maintain stable operation in a short period of time, and it is necessary to pay attention to the inventory situation of enterprises.

 

3、 Future forecast

 

According to the refrigerant analysts of the business agency, the demand in August was poor and the refrigerant market was dismal. R22 was supported by quota, but the actual transaction atmosphere was not good, and the price was expected to fluctuate slightly. However, the inventory of R134a was on the high side, and new capacity was put into the market, and the price was expected to continue to decline. On the whole, it is difficult for the market of refrigerants to improve significantly. As September is about to enter, it is hard to find any good profits in the market. It is expected that refrigerants will continue to be weak, so it is hard to be optimistic.

Last week, the price of liquid ammonia fluctuated and Rose (8.17-21)

Last week, the domestic liquid ammonia market remained stable in most regions, and the prices in some regions fluctuated upward. The prices in Shandong, the main production area, rose slightly, and Hebei followed the Shandong market. According to the monitoring of the business agency, in Shandong Province, the rising range of liquid ammonia was about 100 yuan / ton in the week of 17th, and the mainstream market quotation was 2800-3000 yuan / ton.

 

The liquid ammonia in Shandong has been rising in a narrow range for two consecutive weeks. The main reasons are that the large plants are still in the maintenance period. The amount of liquid ammonia is generally used by itself, and a small amount of it is mainly exported. The pressure on manufacturers’ inventory is not great. The quotation of enterprises has also continued to rise, with an increase of more than 300 yuan / ton for two consecutive weeks. At the beginning of this week, the installation facilities of factories have been started successively and returned to normal. The manufacturers mainly suspend export sales, and they will maintain a relatively high level in the near future.

 

Sulfamic acid 

In other regions, the price of liquid ammonia in Hebei also rebounded, with a range of 50-100 yuan / ton. At present, the price has returned to the level in early 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 2850-3000 yuan / ton.

 

In the future, the business agency believes that the price of liquid ammonia is mostly stable near the end of the month, and some of them are rising slightly. 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 will be differentiated to some extent. In the short term, due to the maintenance of some units, the partial supply imbalance may be caused. However, in the late stage of plant resumption in Shandong, the ammonia quantity will be accumulated step by step, and the price may be subject to certain restrictions 。 From the demand side, the downstream procurement is moderate. Although urea has winter storage, the current social inventory is still high and the price support is limited. In terms of the downstream fertilizer market, affected by the overseas epidemic situation, the reduction of export supply is still driven by domestic rigid demand. Therefore, affected by both supply and demand factors, the price of liquid ammonia is expected to be stable in the near future.
