Nickel price has been continuously revised back since November, and nickel market has returned to fundamentals after the positive digestion of Indonesia’s ore ban in the early stage. Recently, restricted by the high inventory and profit compression, the stainless steel market has been receiving the news of maintenance and production reduction, which undoubtedly makes the demand expectation of nickel market more pessimistic. The production reduction of stainless steel plant has been implemented in succession, and the basic performance of nickel itself is more negative due to the falling price space of stainless steel itself. However, Indonesia’s nickel ore and nickel iron import data in October were lower than expected, and the Philippines’ supply in rainy season was expected to decline. The import data in November and December were facing a decline, which had some support for nickel prices.

II. Analysis and comment

 

1. Raw materials: pure benzene: this month, the range of pure benzene fluctuates in a narrow range. On November 30, the listing price of pure benzene was 5250-5351 yuan / ton. This month, the tight domestic spot supply of pure benzene led to the short supply, which led to a slight recovery in the price of pure benzene; the port inventory continued to be below 100000 tons, and the port to ship situation was also very limited, the market low-cost resources were hard to find, and the mentality of reluctant to sell increased.

 

Nitric acid: the price of nitric acid in East China is lower in this month. At the end of October, the price of nitric acid in East China is 1716.67 yuan / ton. At the end of November, the price of nitric acid in East China is 1616.67 yuan / ton.

2. Products: this month, the basic recovery load of the aniline plant shut down by enterprises increased the supply. The downstream demand has been low, the enterprise inventory has accumulated, in order to promote shipment, the price has been lowered many times.

 

III. future forecast

 

1. Raw materials: at present, domestic demand for pure benzene downstream is weak, which will still restrict the market recovery. It is predicted that the short-term pure benzene market is difficult to return to temperature, and the weak operation is the main one. But the stock up before the Spring Festival will form a good support for the market.

 

2. Domestic market: there is no large-scale shutdown of domestic aniline plant temporarily; the overall operation rate of downstream MDI is not high, the demand is weak, and the price of aniline is difficult to recover.

 

Considering comprehensively, it is expected that aniline will still operate weakly and stably in the short term, and attention should be paid to raw materials and downstream market.
