The price of primary metallurgical coke in port trade is about 2,100 RMB/ton, of quasi-primary is about 2,000 RMB/ton, and of secondary is about 1,900 RMB/ton.

Products: At present, the domestic coke market has been running steadily after two consecutive rounds of increase and decrease, with a cumulative reduction of about 200 RMB/ton. The overall start-up rate of coke enterprises is relatively stable, and coke supply is relatively sufficient, but the overall market trading situation is flat, leading to some coke enterprises inventory increase. Although there is no obvious sales pressure for coke enterprises at present, the market pessimism is still continuing. The downstream steel plants are still limited by environmental factors. The coke stock of the steel plants remains high and the purchase of coke is just needed. On the port side, the trading situation is still weak, and traders mostly hold a wait-and-see attitude towards coke purchase.

Industry: According to the price monitoring of SunSirs, in the 35th week (9.2-9.6) of 2019, there were nine kinds of commodities rising in the energy sector, one of which rose more than 5%, accounting for 6.3% of the monitored commodities in the sector; the first three commodities were dimethyl ether (5.56%), methanol (4.81%) and MTBE (4.43%). There were five kinds of commodities falling in the ring ratio. The first three products falling were coke (-3.74%), coking coal (-1.36%) and liquefied gas (-0.63%).

  1. Market Forecast

SunSirs’ Coke analysts believe that the overall supply of coke enterprises is sufficient and the stock of some enterprises has increased slightly. After two consecutive rounds of price reduction, the profit of coke enterprises has reached a low level. However, in order to avoid excessive storage pressure, coke enterprises are still actively shipping. Towards the National Day, the downstream steel plants have a stricter trend of production restriction and a higher average stock level, enterprises buy on demand, coke and steel game sentiment is strong, the coke market is expected to be stable in the near future weak.
