Bromine price down this week (7.12-7.16)

1、 Price trend

Gamma Polyglutamic Acid

According to the data monitoring of the business club’s block list, the price of bromine has declined. At the beginning of the week, the average market price in Shandong was 45812.5 yuan / ton, while at the weekend, the average market price was 45187.5 yuan / ton, down 1.36%, up 71.96% over the same period last year. On July 16, the bromine commodity index was 158.55, unchanged from yesterday, down 1.90% from 161.62 (2021-07-01), the highest point in the cycle, and up 169.09% from 58.92, the lowest point on October 29, 2014( Note: period refers to the period from September 1, 2011 to now

2、 Market analysis

At present, the domestic bromine is declining, and the current mainstream price of enterprises is about 44000-45000 yuan / ton, and the price of bromine is weaker than that of the previous period. The main reason is that the downstream flame retardants and intermediates start with low load, and the purchase of bromine is reduced. There is a psychological resistance to the long-term rise of bromine. Due to the high temperature in summer, the number of maintenance enterprises in southern China also increases, and the bromine is mainly purchased on demand.

Raw materials: the domestic sulfur market continues to wait and see, and refineries in various regions offer stable prices according to their own shipment situation. Refineries in domestic areas operate normally, traders enter the market to purchase on demand, the external price is firm, and the attitude of the field operators is good. The downstream phosphate fertilizer stock is fair, the spot market is stable, the domestic and export orders perform well, which has good support for sulfur. The sulfur market in the future will wait and see to sort out and operate, and pay attention to the downstream follow-up situation.

Analysts from business news agency believe that the overall supply of bromine is insufficient for a long time, and the supply growth is relatively slow. However, the downstream flame retardant and intermediate industries of bromine are under construction, the demand for bromine is reduced, and they are resistant to the high price of bromine. It is expected that the price of bromine in the short term will be weak in the later period, depending on the downstream market demand.

Viscose staple: poor market, imbalance between supply and demand, prices continue to fall

As of July 7, the overall price of viscose staple fiber showed a downward trend. In recent three months, the price of viscose staple fiber decreased by 2280 yuan / ton, or nearly 14.50%. Since March, the trading volume of textile market has turned weak, and most products have no glory in the future. Since the price of viscose staple fiber reached a high level at the beginning of March, there has been no adjustment, allowing the competitive products and downstream wantonly fall. In April, the sales of viscose staple fiber continued to be sluggish in March, and the price gradually declined.

Gamma Polyglutamic Acid

From the monthly K-bar chart, the price of viscose staple fiber has been on the rise from September 20 to March 21, with a negative drop since April, and the price drop is the most obvious in May, with a drop of 8.85%.

From the perspective of upstream commercial cotton yarn, wood pulp has dropped by 10.66% in the past three months, and the spot price of wood pulp is still in a state of continuous supplement. In June, the performance of the downstream base paper market was weak, there was no obvious fluctuation in the white cardboard and coated paper markets, and the downstream purchasing continued the rigid demand strategy. At the beginning of the month, the price of pulp futures fluctuated weakly, which also made the spot price of wood pulp adjust with the fluctuation of futures price. Then, near the middle of June, the pulp futures price made another effort after several days of silence, and now it is in the downward finishing state, which also leads to the downward trend of the spot price of wood pulp. In the second quarter, the downstream paper products entered the off-season of consumption, the price rise of external quotation slowed down and the pressure of national policy increased, all of which made the price of wood pulp under pressure.

Business analysts believe that the output of viscose staple fiber is expected to remain low in July, but since mid July, the strength of rotation inspection of viscose staple fiber market may gradually slow down, and the overall supply of the industry will still show an upward trend. Since 2021 / 4 / 4, the 7-day moving average has been Undercrossing the 30 day moving average and started a downward trend, but the current two moving average have a trend of opposite. According to 2021 / 7 / 4 calculation, the probability of change of operation situation in the next 7 days (that is, the 7-day moving average crosses the 30 day moving average) is 50.39%( Note: if the 7-day moving average crosses the 30 day moving average upward, the index will enter the upward channel; If the 7-day moving average crosses the 30 day moving average downward, the index will enter the downward channel.)

Gamma Polyglutamic Acid

From the rare earth index chart, it can be clearly seen that the domestic rare earth prices picked up in early July, and the prices of mainstream commodities in the rare earth market have increased to varying degrees recently, and the rare earth market has stopped falling and picked up. In terms of products:

It can be clearly seen from the product price trend chart that the prices of domestic mainstream products such as neodymium oxide, metallic neodymium, praseodymium neodymium oxide, praseodymium neodymium alloy, praseodymium oxide and metallic praseodymium are gradually rising. As of July 2, the price of neodymium oxide in domestic rare earth is 480000 yuan / ton; The price of metal neodymium is 595000 yuan / ton; The price of praseodymium neodymium oxide is 487500 yuan / ton; The price of PR nd alloy is 602500 yuan / ton; The price of praseodymium is 700000 yuan / ton; The price of praseodymium oxide is 570000 yuan / ton, and all products have increased in varying degrees. Most of them have risen for 2 working days in a row. The turning point of domestic light rare earth market is now, and the market price is gradually rising.

The domestic rare earth market has stopped falling and recovered, the inflection point of supply and demand structure is coming, the demand for high-end magnetic materials is increasing, and the profit margin of rare earth industry chain is opening up. In the near future, China’s rare earth quota on the supply side may increase steadily, the supply rigidity is optimized, and the new energy efficiency standards are implemented. The proportion of frequency conversion air conditioners in domestic household appliances and NdFeB penetration rate will continue to increase, and the demand side is expected to continue to rise. The sales of new energy vehicles are relatively normal, and the demand for rare earth is high. The main rare earth raw materials of high performance NdFeB are light rare earth praseodymium neodymium oxide, heavy rare earth dysprosium oxide and terbium oxide, which are used in new energy vehicles, wind power, energy-saving frequency conversion air conditioning, traditional vehicles and other fields. According to statistics, the sales of new energy vehicles are still good. According to the data released by China Automobile Industry Association, in May 2021, the sales volume of the automobile industry is expected to reach 2.224 million units, a month on month decrease of 2.1% and a year-on-year increase of 0.5%; From January to may, the cumulative sales volume of the automobile industry is estimated to be 10.951 million, a year-on-year increase of 37.6%. Recently, the downstream demand has increased more than before, and the market price of light rare earth has turned to the rising channel.

It can be seen from the trend chart that the price trend of dysprosium in China is getting warmer, and the price of dysprosium oxide is 2.385 million yuan / ton as of the 2nd; The price of dysprosium ferroalloy is 2.38 million yuan / ton, and the price of dysprosium metal is 3.265 million yuan / ton. The domestic price of terbium series rises correspondingly. The domestic price of terbium oxide is 6.525 million yuan / ton, and that of metal terbium is 8.3 million yuan / ton. The transaction of domestic rare earth market has improved, the leading magnetic material factory has continued to expand, the demand for replenishment has made the domestic heavy rare earth market prices warmer and higher, coupled with Myanmar’s ban on exports, the global supply of rare earth is more concentrated, and Myanmar is one of the production areas next only to China and the United States. Myanmar has a great influence on the domestic heavy rare earth market products, the import source has decreased significantly, the market supply of heavy rare earth on the floor is general, the recent downstream procurement is active, and the market price trend has stopped falling and warmed up.

Recently, the “notice on industrial energy conservation supervision in 2021″ stressed that enterprises in key industries such as iron and steel, non-ferrous metal smelting, petrochemical and chemical industry, building materials and so on should be comprehensively investigated, and special supervision on the implementation of mandatory energy consumption quota standards per unit product should be carried out, so as to finally achieve full coverage of energy conservation supervision of enterprises in key industries during the “14th five year plan”. Industry insiders believe that this reflects the strengthening of government control over the rare earth industry, which is conducive to the healthy development of the industry. Since 2021, the overall demand of rare earth products is fair, the downstream demand has increased recently, the phenomenon of replenishment is frequent, and the price of domestic rare earth market has risen.

In 2021, the first batch of rare earth mining, smelting and separation total amount control indicators increased significantly, which was related to the strong downstream demand. The Ministry of natural resources issued the total amount control indicators of rare earth mining in 2021. In 2021, the total amount control indicators of the first batch of rare earth mines (rare earth oxide REO, the same below) in China were 84000 tons, including 11490 tons of ionic (mainly medium and heavy rare earth) rare earth mines, The index of rock ore type (light) rare earth ore is 72510 tons. The first batch of tungsten concentrate (tungsten trioxide content 65%, the same below) has a total mining control index of 63000 tons, of which the main mining index is 46890 tons and the comprehensive utilization index is 16110 tons. In 2021, the total amount of rare earth and tungsten mining will continue to be controlled, the national policy will be favorable, and the domestic price of rare earth will rise.

With the sustainable development of new energy vehicles, wind power and variable frequency air conditioning in the downstream of rare earth, and the continuous demand, coupled with the normal start of domestic rare earth supply, the recent on-site transactions have increased, and the purchase is active. Business analyst Chen Ling expects that the market price of rare earth will maintain a rising trend in the future.

PA6 price rises steadily in June

1、 Price trend:

Gamma Polyglutamic Acid

According to the data of the large list of business agencies, the domestic PA6 market market adjustment and operation are mainly in June, and spot prices are adjusted narrowly. As of June 30, the main offer price of sample enterprises for Zhongwei 2.75-2.85 was about 15000 yuan / ton, up 2.97% compared with the average price at the beginning of the month, with a rise of 23.29% compared with the same period last year.

2、 Analysis of influencing factors:

In terms of caprolactam in the upstream, the trend of June was adjusted slightly. At the beginning of the month, international crude oil was stronger, but the benzene external market continued to decline, and the peripheral news was empty. In addition, styrene continued to decline, dragging the center of gravity of pure benzene. In the middle of the middle, the inventory of pure benzene port was low, and the domestic pure benzene price continued to rise, and then the fluctuation and consolidation, and lidocarbonamide stabilized. In the second ten days, the supply of pure benzene decreased continuously and the price was stronger. In addition, some caprolactam enterprises have been overhauled and the supply is tightened. It is expected that caprolactam may continue to rise in the short term.

The raw material caprolactam is narrow and vibrated, and it turns warm at the end of the month. The cost side support of PA6 is still acceptable. The spot market of PA6 in the first ten days was also stable, and the profit of PA6 polymerization enterprises in the next half of the month improved limited. At present, the traditional off-season impact of rubber and plastic industry is still in progress. Downstream factories tend to take goods only, and follow up is slow. The transaction on the site is weak, and the actual delivery and investment are mostly small orders. However, there are still some enterprises in the industry to maintain production lines, and the supply side is good for conventional spinning and slicing products. In addition, the strength of caprolactam at the end of the month, the spot price of PA6 at the end of the month rose.

3、 Post market forecast:

Analysts from business society think: the caprolactam market in the upper reaches of PA6 in June is generally stable and has been strong at the end of the month. PA6 cost side support is acceptable. Affected by off-season, the end-user consumption is low, downstream enterprises just need to buy mainly, the on-site investment is poor, and the wait-and-see mentality is strong. It is expected that the spot price of PA6 will rise in the short term or will be affected by the strong upstream.
