The price of fuel oil 180CST fluctuated and rose this week (7.19-7.25)

According to the data of business agency, as of July 25, the average price of domestic fuel oil 180CST was 4800.00 yuan / ton (including tax), up 0.10% from 4795.00 yuan / ton on July 19.

The price of thermal coal rose this week (7.19-7.23)

1、 Price trend

Thiourea

According to the monitoring data of business agency, the average market price at the beginning of the week was about 1025 yuan / ton, and the average market price at the weekend was about 1062.5 yuan / ton, with a price increase of 3.66% and a year-on-year increase of 83.9%. On July 22, the thermal coal commodity index was 126.81, the same as yesterday, reaching a record high in the cycle, an increase of 183.69% from the lowest point of 44.70 on January 20, 2016( Note: period refers to the period from September 1, 2011 to now)

In terms of origin: in terms of origin, coal mines around the country have resumed production one after another, and the power coal supply has increased. However, due to the coal mine accident in Yulin recently, the power coal supply is still tight due to the impact of safety inspection.

Downstream power plants: due to the impact of summer to meet the peak, the daily consumption of the power plant is high, and the coal inventory of the power plant remains low. Data show that the average daily coal consumption of power plants in eight coastal provinces is about 2.2 million tons, and the number of days available for inventory is reduced to about 8 days. Due to rainfall, the coal transportation channel was damaged to varying degrees, which affected the coal transportation to a certain extent, and the coal transfer in volume of the port decreased.

According to the latest data released by the General Administration of customs, in June, China imported 12.322 million tons of thermal coal (including bituminous coal and other bituminous coal), a year-on-year increase of 7.34% and a month-on-month increase of 31.65%. From January to June, China imported 59.467 million tons of thermal coal, down 21.2% from 75.467 million tons in the same period last year. In June, China imported 11.109 million tons of lignite, a year-on-year increase of 57.7% and a month on month increase of 48.1%. From January to June, China imported 53.533 million tons of lignite, a year-on-year decrease of 6.04%.

Analysts of business society believe that the supply guarantee policy is frequent and the power coal supply side is tight. Due to the weather in the downstream, the daily consumption of the power plant increases and the inventory is low. The power plant still needs to replenish the storage of power coal. It is comprehensively expected that the price of power coal in the later stage is still strong and mainly depends on the demand of the downstream market.

Downstream demand increases gradually, spandex price rises sharply

On July 21, the price of spandex was 78200 yuan / ton, up 15.68% from three months ago, and 2800 yuan / ton, up 3.71% from the beginning of the month. Since July, the overall trend of spandex has been on the rise. In the middle of July, the price of spandex has decreased slightly, but after that, the price of spandex has recovered rapidly. At present, the spandex market remains high, the performance of cost side support is acceptable, the spot supply is tight, the manufacturers continue to hand over orders, and the new orders are temporarily not received, so the overall market demand cannot be alleviated.

Thiourea

The price rise of spandex is mainly due to raw materials. On July 2, kostrong issued a letter to announce that its 420000t / a MDI plant in brunsbit, Germany, will take effect from now on. It is reported that the MDI device was shut down for routine maintenance and preparation of the device from August to September. The reason for the shutdown was due to an unexpected failure of the production system. It is uncertain how long this situation will last, but it is expected to lead to a significant delay in the delivery of all MDI products.

In addition to the rise in raw materials, the rebound in demand is an important reason for the rise in spandex prices. In terms of demand, the export volume of spandex from January to May increased by about 58% over the same period last year. In addition, after the epidemic, people pay more attention to sports and health, and the downstream demand for comfortable fabrics, especially yoga clothes and sportswear is increasing. Benefited from this, the proportion of spandex application increased, ordinary sportswear spandex accounted for 10% ~ 20%, some even up to 30%. In addition, in the near future, the lower reaches are also preparing for autumn fabrics.

Affected by the surge of spandex, a large number of counterfeit spandex appeared in the market recently. Xinxiang Chemical Fiber Co., Ltd. issued a solemn statement on the recent appearance of counterfeit egret Spandex Products in the market. The quality of egret Spandex Products has prominent advantages in the industry and has been widely praised by the industry and sought after by customers, the article said. But some time ago, it was found that a number of spandex products were produced and sold illegally under the brand of “Egret”. Egret spandex produced by the company is produced in Xinxiang, Henan Province, and there is no production branch or entrusted factory. Please purchase egret Spandex Products from Xinxiang Chemical fiber spandex marketing department or official cooperative dealers to avoid unnecessary losses. The loss caused by customers purchasing products in informal channels has nothing to do with our company.

Business analysts believe that since 2021 / 4 / 18, the 7-day moving average has crossed the 30 day moving average and started the upward trend. At present, the two moving average continue to move upward. According to the calculation of 2021 / 7 / 18, the probability of changing the operation situation in the next seven days (that is, the 7-day moving average crosses the 30 day moving average) is only 5.18%.

The price of isooctanol set a record, which stimulated the price of DOP to rise sharply.

As can be seen from the price trend chart of phthalic anhydride, the market of phthalic anhydride continued to fluctuate and rise in late June. The price of phthalic anhydride rose all the way in July, up 1.4%, and the momentum of DOP increased.

Market summary and future expectation

Bai Jiaxin, DOP data analyst of business news agency, believes that the DOP price of plasticizer and the price of raw material isooctanol both set historical records in the cycle, and the rising price of raw material stimulates the market of plasticizer all the way up. As the price of plasticizer continues to rise, the rebound of cost pressure of downstream customers increases, the rising power of plasticizer in the future weakens, and the downward pressure increases. In terms of raw materials, the short-term price of isooctanol is expected to stabilize with the recovery of operating rate, and the support of raw materials to the rise of DOP is weakened. Generally speaking, DOP’s rising trend slowed down in the future, DOP’s price rose slightly in the short term, and DOP’s price peaked and fell in the long term. 15000 yuan / ton is expected to be a ceiling of DOP.
