The total inventory was 958,000 tons, a decrease of 42,200 tons from last week, and a decrease of 4.22% on a week-on-week basis. Ended for four consecutive weeks’ inventories increase.
To sum up, as the National Day approaches, the speed of replenishment before the holiday begins to slow down. The last round of replenishment before the holiday this week has also released some pressure on the inventory of the tube factory. Although the sales situation this week has picked up compared with last week, traders are afraid to stockpile too much and keep the warehouse stable. According to traders’ feedback, the sales volume in September of this year did not reach the expected volume. In addition to the holiday season, they did not have much expectations for the September market. They kept their minds to wait and see. The market outlook for seamless pipes is expected to be stable, with some declines.
