According to the monitoring of business agency, the price of activated carbon at the beginning of this week was 11333 yuan / ton, and the price of activated carbon at the end of this week was 11266 yuan / ton, down 0.59%.
Products: the price of domestic activated carbon continues to fluctuate and decline. At present, the ex factory price of activated carbon for coconut shell water purification in East China is about 7200-12000 yuan / ton; the price of domestic activated carbon is mainly to maintain stability, and the factory basically purchases on demand to maintain normal production.
Industry chain: the cost pressure of coconut shell, fruit shell, charcoal and other main raw materials in the upstream of activated carbon is supported, and the demand is acceptable; the cost support of coal-based carbon raw materials is weak. Downstream electric power, medicine and other demand industries purchase goods according to the order, the market for purchasing activated carbon for air purification and water purification is favorable, environmental protection policies boost the activated carbon market, and downstream factories purchase cautiously, unwilling to accept orders in a hurry, and there are not many firm deals.
Forecast: there is no sign of improvement in the downstream of activated carbon. In addition to maintaining the necessary procurement, the enthusiasm for receiving goods is difficult to improve. It is expected that the short-term activated carbon market will not improve greatly, and the overall market will continue to decline.
