Analysis review

Product: In September, the price of hydrofluoric acid continued to decline as a whole, the sales situation of manufacturers remained unimproved, the starting rate of downstream refrigerant industry remained at a low level, the domestic market demand for hydrofluoric acid was limited, the domestic hydrofluoric acid plant maintained a high starting rate, the domestic spot supply was sufficient, and some manufacturers continued to reduce the ex-factory price. By the end of the month, the mainstream of hydrofluoric acid negotiations in the southern region was 9000-1000 RMB/ton. The price of hydrofluoric acid in the northern market is 9500-10000 RMB/ton.

Industry chain: In September, the price of fluorite in the upstream of hydrofluoric acid declined. At the end of the month, the factory price of fluorite was 2866.67 RMB/ton. Recently, the fluorite plant started to operate normally. On the whole, the supply of fluorite is sufficient. However, the fluorite market is greatly affected by environmental protection. The supply of fluorite is normal. The price of fluorite in some factories has fallen back, and the price of fluorite market has declined slightly. Recent downstream refrigerant market trading is poor, domestic refrigerant R22 market shocks down, from the market supply point of view, refrigerant R22 market continues to be weak, manufacturers reduce the start-up load, market supply capacity has decreased, inventory pressure has been cushioned. On the demand side, downstream air-conditioning manufacturers'overhaul showed no increase in demand, and the price of domestic large enterprises fell to 1250-14000 RMB/ton. The domestic market price of R134a has declined, the start-up rate of production enterprises has remained low, the market demand for refrigerants has decreased, and manufacturers mainly export their products. However, on-site transaction prices continue to decline, merchants purchase on demand, the end of the peak season, downstream terminal demand only declined, hydrofluoric acid market prices declined.

Industry: In September, the upstream fluorite and hydrofluoric acid industry started to operate normally, the hydrofluoric acid spot supply was sufficient, and the market price of hydrofluoric acid declined.


Market outlook

Recently, the hydrofluoric acid plant started to operate normally, the supply of goods in the field is normal, the price of raw material fluorite market is low, which has a negative impact on the hydrofluoric acid market. In addition, the demand of refrigeration industry downstream is low, and the demand for hydrofluoric acid only declines but does not increase. The analyst of hydrofluoric acid believe that the market price of hydrofluoric acid will remain low in October and the price of hydrofluoric acid will be about 9,700 RMB/ton.
