November 05 2019 11:23:46      (Daisy Wong)

On 4th Nov, the hydrofluoric acid commodity index was 87.48, which was the same as yesterday. It was 37.71% lower than the highest point in the period at 140.43 (21st Feb.2018). And it was 63.24% higher than the lowest point at 53.59 on 30th Nov. 2016. . (Note: The period refers to since 1st Sep.2011).

According to statistics, the domestic market price of hydrofluoric acid is temporarily stable. Up to now, the domestic market price of hydrofluoric acid is 9,640 RMB/t. The operating rate of this kind of factory is less than 60%.

The company reflects that the current supply of hydrofluoric acid is sufficient within industry. Recently, the stock of hydrofluoric acid has not flowed. The demand of downstream keeps down, and some of hydrofluoric acid manufacturers have stagnated prices and the market price of it has remained low. At present, the mainstream price of hydrofluoric acid in the southern region is about 9,000-9,500 RMB/t, and the price of it in the northern market is 9000-10,000 RMB/t. The domestic market price of hydrofluoric acid remains at a low level, and the supply of spot goods are sufficient, but the demand was poor.

The upstream market–fluorite, its price remained at a low level. Till 4th Nov., the price of fluorite was 2,877.78 RMB/t. The fluctuation of raw material price brought limited support to the hydrofluoric acid market. Therefore, the market price of hydrofluoric acid was slightly lower due to the low price of fluorite. Recently, the market for downstream refrigerants that is the terminal downstream of this chain is generally low. The domestic refrigerant R22 price remains low. On the supply side, the refrigerant R22 market continues to be weak. The production load reduces significantly, and the decrease of market supply capacity ensues, which also help ease the pressure of inventory. On the demand side, downstream players-air conditioner manufacturers overhaul. Demand is reduced, and the price of domestic large enterprises is at 1,200-13,000 RMB/t. The domestic R134a market price trend is at a low level. The operating rate of production enterprises keeps at a low level. The demand for refrigerants is decreasing, and the manufacturers are mainly export-oriented. However, the transaction price on the market continues to fall, and the merchants purchases exactly based on demand. At the end of the peak season, the downstream demand of the terminal only decreased, and the market price of hydrofluoric acid declined. However, the transaction price in the market was lower, and the merchants purchased on demand. Recently, with entering the off-season, downstream demand did not improve, and the market price of hydrofluoric acid remained low.

Overall, the turnover rate in the refrigerant field is poor. The operating rate of the refrigerant industry equipment is low, and the demand for the upstream hydrofluoric acid market is limited. However, the supply of hydrofluoric acid is sufficient. The hydrofluoric acid manufacturers reflect loss is quite serious. SunSirs analyst Chen Ling believes that the market price of hydrofluoric acid may remain at a low level.
