EDTA

Cause analysis

 

Industrial chain: upstream, the domestic propylene (Shandong) market price rose this week. Recently, due to the good digestion of propylene inventory in the field, the supply has narrowed, and enterprises and merchants have increased their sales. However, the current downstream rigid demand is not strong, and it is more resistant to high price supply. In addition, the weakness of raw material end and the gradual cooling of trading have hindered the rise of propylene price. The market stabilized after rising this week, and it is expected that the propylene market may turn into a weak operation in the near future.

 

Propylene prices rose, but crude oil fell sharply in the early stage due to the impact of the Federal Reserve’s interest rate hike, and PP cost side support was weak this week. In terms of industry load, the operating rate of PP polymerization enterprises was adjusted this week, and the real-time loss capacity was expanded, but the current supply pressure is still large. The inventory digestion of enterprises and midstream is not as good as last week, and the inventory position continues to rise, and is at the high position over the years. In terms of demand, the downstream factories of wire drawing materials purchase and follow-up are biased towards just need to maintain production. In terms of operation, they buy on bargain hunting and have a strong resistance to high price sources. Traders’ shipments are in line with the market, and the operating rate of terminal enterprises has decreased by a narrow margin. It is expected that the spot market of PP wire drawing materials may continue to be weak and adjusted.

 

In terms of fiber materials, according to the data monitored by the business society, as of July 15, the spot price of domestic fiber PP gradually fell. The mainstream offer price of Z30S (fiber) from domestic producers and traders was about 8216.67 yuan / ton, up or down -4.27% compared with the average price at the beginning of the month, with a year-on-year decrease of -4.09%. This week, the load of downstream non-woven enterprises, the main force of PP fiber, continued to drop, and the demand and operation of end enterprises continued on the whole. Large enterprises just needed to take goods to maintain production, while the load of small and medium-sized enterprises decreased or even stopped production. The consumption of products maintains the off-season mode, and the replenishment operation tends to maintain production. The demand for medical fiber products has also cooled, and the rigid support is weakened. The supply side is abundant, and the market momentum is reduced. It is expected that the fiber material may remain weak in the off-season market in the short term.

 

Melamine

In terms of melt blown materials, the melt blown PP market fell this week. As of July 15, the average quotation of domestic melt blown material sample enterprises monitored by the business agency was about 9566.67 yuan / ton, up or down -0.35% compared with the average price at the beginning of the month. In terms of international health events, the current situation in various countries is still not optimistic. Recently, the number of confirmed cases in China has increased, and the epidemic prevention pressure continues to fluctuate. However, medical meltblown cloth materials have entered the off-season of consumption, and the demand has decreased, which does not significantly support the spot price. The supply of melt blown materials in the market is sufficient, and the saturation of domestic melt blown materials and cloth enterprises is high. Together with the shipping resistance, it is expected that the recent market of melt blown PP will maintain a weak operation along with other PP varieties.

 

Aftermarket forecast

 

PP analysts of business news agency believe that the domestic polypropylene market fell this week, the rise of raw material propylene market was blocked, the decline of international crude oil intensified, and the cost side support of PP weakened. The demand of terminal enterprises expands slowly, the mentality of merchants is general, and the offer is subject to the market. It is expected that the PP market may continue to be weak in the near future.

Magnesium ingot prices fell first and then stabilized, and the stalemate may continue (7.1-7.8)

Price trend of metallic magnesium

 

Azodicarbonamide (AC foaming Agent)

Market analysis this week

 

According to the data monitoring of the business agency, as of the 8th, the average price in the domestic market was 25333.33 yuan / ton, down 3.18% on a weekly basis. This week, the magnesium ingot price was weak. After the price fell at the beginning of the week, it has been running steadily, and the magnesium ingot Market shows signs of stopping falling and stabilizing.

 

Supply and demand

Under the pressure of the traditional off-season from July to August, the downstream purchase intention is low, and the overall transaction performance is general. Considering the cost of magnesium plants, the current magnesium price has been at the edge of the cost line, and the plants still maintain cautious shipments, and some do not offer prices temporarily.

 

Upstream and downstream

 

On July 8, the mainstream quotation in Ningxia fluctuated in the range of 7800-8000 yuan / ton, the price of ferrosilicon fell below the cost price, and some manufacturers began to take the initiative to reduce production and guarantee prices. The futures market fluctuated at a low level, and the bidding price in July was lower than the market expectation, which suppressed the spot price of ferrosilicon. At the same time, the price of blue carbon fell, and the production pressure of magnesium plants became more obvious.

 

povidone Iodine

The downstream magnesium alloy and magnesium powder are weak, and the production of magnesium alloy enterprises is relatively stable. Due to the weak downstream demand for magnesium powder, the production and operation of magnesium powder enterprises are weak.

 

Aftermarket forecast

 

Raw material ferrosilicon is weak, the price of blue carbon is down, and the operating pressure of magnesium plant is increasing; At the same time, as the price approaches the cost line and the factory operation in summer, the cost pressure of magnesium plants also increases, and the possibility of magnesium ingot prices continuing to fall is small. However, from the perspective of supply and demand, the magnesium market has continued to operate under pressure in recent two months under the current situation of weak demand and the absence of good news in the market. Business analysts believe that magnesium ingot prices may be deadlocked in the short term.

As of July 11, the ex factory price reference offer of POM injection molding sample enterprises of business club was about 20066.67 yuan / ton, up or down -1.63% compared with the average price level at the beginning of the month.

 

Cause analysis

 

Industrial chain: in terms of upstream formaldehyde, the market price of formaldehyde in Shandong fell last week. As of July 7, the mainstream market price in Shandong was 1230-1260 yuan / ton. Recently, the methanol market has fallen, the cost support is poor, the formaldehyde market has fallen under the influence of methanol, and the downstream demand is difficult to improve. It is hard to maintain the rigid demand for procurement. The formaldehyde market is generally traded, and the market has weakened slightly.

 

EDTA

The upstream formaldehyde market fell, and POM cost side support weakened. In terms of industry load, the load of some domestic POM enterprises fell last week, but the on-site supply was abundant, and the pressure reduction effect of lost capacity on the supply side was limited. At present, the inventory of manufacturers and midstream enterprises is high, the operating rate of terminal enterprises is generally restricted by profits or orders, and the operating rate is narrowed. The consumption of POM in the field is slow, and the situation is in the off-season mode. Terminal enterprises are cautious in purchasing, mainly taking small orders, and have a heavy wait-and-see mood. The main bad news on the floor was the high inventory caused by insufficient demand. The mentality of merchants was general, and the offer was mainly reduced with the enterprises.

 

Aftermarket forecast

 

Business analysts believe that the domestic POM market continued to decline last week, the upstream formaldehyde market fell, and the cost support of POM weakened. The load of POM industry decreased, and the supply side remained abundant. The consumption of downstream enterprises is weak, and there is no large-scale replenishment in procurement. It is expected that in the short term, the POM price may fall due to the inventory of Gaozhu and give priority to profit.

In terms of upstream raw materials, raw calcium carbide: after the maintenance of Erdos chemical, the supply of commercial calcium carbide decreased, but the downstream fatigue is difficult to support the sharp rebound of calcium carbide. In the short term, the domestic calcium carbide market is stable and small, and the overall operation is still finishing.

 

In terms of methanol, the supply of methanol is expected to increase, the marginal demand is weakened, and the short-term methanol market is mainly weak and declining. BDO cost side support weakened.

 

Melamine

The downstream PTMEG spandex and gbl-nmp industrial chain, PBT and PBAT industries all fell sharply driven by weak terminal demand and downward raw material prices.

 

With the restart of the maintenance device, the supply will increase, while the overall operation of the downstream is low, the willingness to purchase is not strong, and the price of raw materials is seriously depressed. BDO analysts of business agency expect that the domestic BDO market will continue to decline.

The price position is temporarily balanced, and the ABS spot market stabilizes

Price trend:

 

povidone Iodine

According to the bulk list data of business society, the domestic ABS market was stable in the previous week, and the spot prices of various brands were adjusted in a narrow range. As of July 11, the average price of general-purpose ABS mainstream offer was about 12800 yuan / ton, up or down -2.66% compared with the price level at the beginning of the month.

 

Factor analysis:

 

Industrial chain: in terms of raw material styrene, the market price of styrene fluctuated and consolidated last week. Affected by the rise and fall of crude oil prices, the cost was the dominant force. The market price of pure benzene in China fell to 9235 yuan / ton, which was difficult to support the styrene market. The arrival of styrene in Hong Kong and the inventory of enterprises were low, which restrained the decline of styrene. The transaction in the styrene market was general, and the spot price fluctuated slightly.

 

The price of acrylonitrile was mainly deadlocked last week. Under the premise of supporting the bottom of the cost, the market supply is loose, the downstream rigid demand is dominated, and the price focus of propylene is still on the downward trend in the atmosphere of buying up but not buying down. The market is in a stalemate due to the long short game. Propylene market is expected to run at a low level in the near future.

 

Last week, the domestic butadiene market was adjusted at a low level. Due to the early increase in export sales of northeast sources and the restart of devices in Shandong, the market expectation was short, and the poor transaction dragged the supplier’s price downward. Then, under the centralized influence of some supply side news, the mentality of merchants slightly strengthened, while the high cost of goods in East China affected the strong offer intention, but the downstream rigid demand boost was limited, and some high price transactions were deadlocked.

 

Melamine

Last week, the upstream three materials of ABS cost side showed a general trend. Previously, the price fluctuation of international crude oil was intensified due to the interest rate hike of the Federal Reserve, which was bad for the oil and chemical industry chain, and the cost support of ABS was poor. In terms of industry load, the current operating rate of ABS enterprises has limited changes, which is generally at a high level and has limited support for the supply side. The current season is in the off-season of the industry, and the pattern of weak market demand is gradually unfolding. Merchants cut prices and took orders, stimulating some trading after giving up profits, and the ABS spot price stabilized.

 

Future forecast:

 

Business analysts believe that the spot market of ABS fell narrowly last week, and the overall trend of the three upstream materials was poor, weakening the cost side support of ABS. The domestic spot supply is abundant, and the demand follow-up is poor. Recently, the spot price on the floor has fallen to the equilibrium point, and the current market is sideways. It is expected that the ABS spot market will continue to stabilize in the short term.

Copper weekly rise and fall chart

 

According to the weekly rise and fall chart of the business club, in the past three months, copper prices have risen by 3 and fell by 9. Recently, copper prices have fallen continuously.

 

Macro: the dollar soared to a 20-year high, pessimism broke out, and the CNN fear greed index was only 21, and the market was in a state of extreme panic. The manufacturing PMI of Europe and the United States in June has been released, recording 53 and 52.1 respectively, both lower than that of May. New orders in the United States fell below the boom and bust line for the first time since May 2020, only 49.2. Waller and Brad, the two most hawkish decision makers of the Federal Reserve, supported an additional 75 basis points increase in interest rates this month to curb inflation, while downplaying concerns about the U.S. economy heading for recession.

 

Benzalkonium chloride

Fundamentals: in terms of supply, the interference at the copper mine end in South America intensified in the middle and early June, but it has basically eased towards the end of the month. In the week of July 1, cspt held an online meeting and decided that the spot TC guide price of copper concentrate in the third quarter of 2022 was $80 / dry ton, unchanged from the second quarter. In terms of demand, in the off-season of consumption, the operating rate of downstream enterprises is lower than the normal level in previous years. As the price fell relatively violently before, the downstream enterprises were afraid of falling and refused to adopt seriously.

 

To sum up, the domestic supply center is expected to rise, and the smelting enthusiasm is still high; The recovery intensity of domestic consumption is weak, and downstream procurement has not improved due to the sharp decline in prices, although the current domestic inventory is still low. It is expected that the copper price will fluctuate at a low level of about 60000 yuan / ton in the short term.
