Ethyl acetate prices fall from high

This week (5.10-14), the domestic ethyl acetate market fell from a high level, and experienced a rise in late April. In the first week of May, the market froze at a high level. While the downstream demand was still relatively weak, the market fell back this week. According to the monitoring of the business community, the decline this week was 2.65%. The main reason is that the upstream acetic acid market is lower, the support is weakened, and the operation rate of ethyl acetate enterprises is stable, the supply of goods is relatively sufficient, and the market has a strong wait-and-see mood. As a result, the bearish signal of ethyl acetate rises again, and the major manufacturers have lowered their quotations one after another, and the prices have continued to fall this week.

First of all, from the perspective of the upstream acetic acid market, according to the monitoring of the business community, the price of acetic acid has been declining continuously since the festival, with a decrease of 2.33% from May 6 to 14 (as shown in the figure below). On the one hand, the operating rate of acetic acid is high, generally between 80% and 90%, and the units that were shut down in the early stage have been put back into operation one after another, especially the Hebei Jiantao unit, which has been put back into full production, but the domestic production has only increased. The high price lost its advantage, laying the groundwork for the decline of ethyl acetate in the downstream.

In addition, from the perspective of ethyl acetate supply, the current market supply is relatively abundant, and the operating rate of enterprises is stable. Compared with the high price in the early stage, the market acceptance is reduced, and the speed of delivery is also gradually slowing down. The prominent supply pressure makes the pressure directly transmitted to the enterprise end, and the large factories continuously reduce the price. According to the calculation of the business society, the price reduction of large factories is about 300 yuan / ton.

From the perspective of supply and demand of ethyl acetate, when the terminal demand enters the summer, the traditional off-season market and purchase reduction depress the price of ethyl acetate. After a previous round of price increase, the lower reaches show rational and certain resistance to the high price of ethyl acetate. The number of households is affected to a certain extent, and the market is even weaker.

In the future, ethyl acetate analysts of business cooperatives believe that there is still downward pressure on ethyl acetate in the short term. On the one hand, it is suppressed by the weak market of acetic acid, and on the other hand, the contradiction between supply and demand is prominent. However, at present, the profit of ethyl acetate is low, the willingness of enterprises to reduce prices is not strong, and the downward space is expected to be limited. In the near future, we will maintain a weak position and focus on narrow adjustment.

Operation situation of three major downstream of silicon metal

Downstream polysilicon

In April, the polysilicon market kept rising. Domestic polysilicon prices continued to rise, domestic manufacturers and import prices remained high, especially import sources increased significantly. At present, domestic polysilicon manufacturers have successively signed new orders in May. The manufacturers are willing to support the price, and the ex factory price is strong. At present, the operating rate of domestic polysilicon manufacturers remains at a high level. Up to now, most of the domestic silicon material manufacturers are operating normally. The two equipment are maintained and started with reduced load. The enterprises maintain a high operating rate and the market supply is stable. The inventory pressure of enterprises has eased. This week, the silicon chip manufacturers did not adjust the price. The demand of downstream silicon chip manufacturers is stable. After several rounds of silicon chip price increases, the tolerance of the downstream to high price silicon materials has increased, and the purchasing volume has not decreased. However, the terminal cost pressure is relatively high, and the component purchasing has a slowing trend, which continues to go up or is hindered.

At present, the polysilicon market is still affected by the shortage of goods, and the price is mainly upward. Considering the current high point, the upward range and power may slow down.

Downstream silicone DMC

In April, the price of downstream silicone DMC was weak. In particular, the market price dropped sharply on the 12th. It is reported that Shandong Luxi Chemical Co., Ltd. sharply reduced the ex factory quotation of silicone DMC to 26400 yuan / ton on the 12th, raising the bearish sentiment of the market.

At present, although the silicone monomer factory has early order processing, the increasing capacity of new orders has weakened. The downward adjustment of silicone DMC price by individual large factories also affects the mood of downstream enterprises. At present, the wait-and-see situation is increasing. It is expected that the silicone DMC market will continue to be weak in the short term.

Downstream aluminum alloy

Recently, the price of aluminum ingot has been rising obviously, breaking through 18000 yuan / ton in April, a record high.

The price of aluminum alloy tends to be better.

Future forecast

The metal silicon just purchased is greatly affected by the overall supply and demand factors. With the coming of the wet season, the production capacity may be released, while the downstream consumption may not be able to expand simultaneously. It is expected that the metal silicon will maintain stability and operate weakly in the near future. In the later stage, we will focus on the impact of environmental protection policy factors and the average price of social production costs on the supply side.

India reported the highest one-day increase in global coronavirus infections since the outbreak began for the second day in a row.

This month, several of India’s largest cities were blocked again as infection cases surged. Traffic restrictions also hurt the fuel intensive trucking industry.

Oil refiners and fuel retailers said India’s total demand for diesel and gasoline this month will fall 20% from March.

India’s demand for all major fuels (diesel, gasoline, aviation fuel and LPG) declined in the first half of April compared with the same period in March. Among them, diesel demand dropped by 3% and gasoline consumption dropped by 5%.

As more and more cities and States implement closures or curfews of various forms, the downward trend in demand will worsen further in late April.

It is said that Indian refineries have begun to reduce the oil processing rate. Officials said that there are still enough oil products in stock, so most of the products have not yet been reduced. If the blockade in Mumbai and New Delhi continues into may, refineries may have to cut production by 10% next month.

Fotios katsoulas, chief liquidity commodity analyst at IHS Markit shipping and trade department, said India’s crude oil imports in April are currently stable and in line with the seasonal pattern, but the recovery of the epidemic may restrain India’s crude oil procurement in the next few weeks.

Indian refineries believe that if the situation does not improve by the end of April, they need to adjust their operations.

Aluminum prices continue to rise this week

 

According to the monitoring of business news agency, the aluminum price fluctuated and rose in April, and the aluminum price rose sharply this week. As the main downstream product of aluminum fluoride, the continuous rise of aluminum price has certain positive stimulation to aluminum fluoride.

 

The high price of fluorite and hydrofluoric acid in the upstream is stable, which can not stimulate the aluminum fluoride Market. The aluminum fluoride starts to operate at low load, and the social inventory is still high. The original inventory of electrolytic aluminum in the downstream is mainly consumed, and the demand for aluminum fluoride bidding and procurement is general at present. Overall, the price of aluminum fluoride is stable.

 

The aluminum fluoride industry analysts of business society believe that: the prices of fluorite and hydrofluoric acid in the upper reaches are high and stable, the fundamentals of aluminum fluoride Market are lack of stimulation, the prices of aluminum fluoride in some areas are slightly reduced, and the overall impact is not big. Recently, the price of electrolytic aluminum has risen sharply, which has a certain positive stimulation for aluminum fluoride. However, at this stage, the social inventory is sufficient, and the sustainability of aluminum price rise is yet to be determined, so aluminum fluoride is rising The price of domestic aluminum fluoride market is expected to be strong and stable in the future.
