2、 Market analysis


Product: R22 market rose this week. The price of trichloromethane at the raw material end has risen sharply, which is good for the cost end. Because the price of R22 refrigerant in the early stage is close to the bottom, and the load of the manufacturer has been reduced, the supply of goods in the field is limited, so the merchants are reluctant to sell it. Considering the cost, the manufacturers are in strong emotion of pricing, and the price of R22 refrigerant has risen. However, the recovery of demand side is slow, the follow-up is insufficient, and the ability to accept the high-end price is limited, so the power for refrigerant R22 to keep rising is insufficient, mainly for consolidation.
