Insufficient upstream support and weak downstream procurement
From the manufacturer’s quotation, the domestic hydrochloric acid market price fell slightly this week. Wenshui synthetic hydrochloric acid quoted 160 yuan / ton at the end of this week, which decreased by 20 yuan / ton compared with last weekend; Liaocheng Huatong hydrochloric acid quoted 80 yuan / ton this weekend, which decreased by 70 yuan / ton compared with last weekend; The price of Xiangcheng San’an hydrochloric acid is 260 yuan / ton this weekend, which is temporarily stable compared with last weekend.
From the perspective of the upstream and downstream industrial chain of hydrochloric acid, the upstream liquid chlorine market is low and the cost support is insufficient. The downstream polyaluminum chloride market price dropped slightly, from 2141.25 yuan / ton at the end of last week to 2128.75 yuan / ton at the end of this week, a decrease of 0.58%, up 26.13% year-on-year compared with the same period of last year; The market price of ammonium chloride decreased slightly, from 1222.50 yuan / ton at the end of last week to 1210.00 yuan / ton at the end of this week, a decrease of 1.02%. On the whole, the upstream support is insufficient, and the downstream purchasing enthusiasm is weakened.
In the middle and late August, the market price of hydrochloric acid may fall in a narrow range. The recent market of liquid chlorine in the upstream is low, and the cost support is insufficient. The market prices of polyaluminum chloride and ammonium chloride in the downstream have dropped slightly, and the downstream purchasing intention is general. Business analysts believe that hydrochloric acid has suffered a small shock and decline in the near future.
