As of the 5th day, the market price of hydrofluoric acid in China was 8630 yuan / ton, and the start-up of hydrofluoric acid plant in China fell to less than 50%. Some hydrofluoric acid manufacturers reported that the downstream procurement was not active, the price of hydrofluoric acid was low, and the low market price of hydrofluoric acid had a certain negative impact on the upstream fluorite market, and the increase of domestic fluorite market was limited. Recently, the sales of automobile industry have improved, but the market trend of refrigerant downstream of the terminal is still depressed. There is no obvious improvement in the demand for refrigerant. With the continuous recovery of foreign economy, the export of refrigerant terminal may be improved. However, the domestic air conditioning industry starts at a low level and the demand for maintenance and after-sales is weak. On the whole, foreign demand may rise. At present, the refrigerant R22 manufacturer’s load is not high, the inventory is in a reasonable range, and the market price is still fluctuating, but the situation of market price or not appears. The mainstream price of R22 for domestic large enterprises is 14500-16500 yuan / ton. The price trend of R134a market in China is declining, and the unit operation rate of production enterprises remains low. At present, the downstream operation is not high, the demand for R134a is cold, the procurement of downstream industry is not active in the near future, the price drops slightly, the downstream demand is not significantly improved, and the growth of fluorite market is limited to some extent.

 

On the whole, the market of downstream refrigerant industry has not improved significantly, and the demand of air conditioning industry may end at the end of May. However, in the near future, hydrofluoric acid merchants report that the price of hydrofluoric acid is difficult to rise. Chen Ling, an analyst of business agency, thinks that the market price of fluorite may rise slightly in the short term, but the rise is not large.
