Overview of fundamentals this week

The influencing factors on the supply side

On the news side, the power outage incident at an aluminum plant in Inner Mongolia may affect production capacity, and actual production changes were limited; In the southwest direction, Yunnan had good precipitation, and the hydroelectric power generation may drive the resumption of a small amount of electrolytic aluminum production capacity in March. Yunnan's early production reduction had been basically completed, and the risk of subsequent production reduction is relatively small. It is expected that Yunnan's production will steadily increase slightly before the rainy season, with little variation.

The influencing factors on the demand side

After the Lantern Festival, downstream consumption had gradually recovered, and the construction of automobiles and photovoltaic panels was still acceptable. The construction sector had also begun to recover from a low level recently. The overall demand had improved.

Market outlook

The traditional peak season for consumption is approaching, and downstream demand may improve. The production capacity and operating rate of aluminum profiles, aluminum cables, aluminum plates and strips, aluminum foils, primary aluminum alloys, and recycled aluminum alloys are gradually recovering with the resumption of production and work. The future spot trading is expected to improve from the current light trend. It is expected that aluminum prices will experience fluctuations to be stronger in the short term.
