Thiourea

Due to the interruption of the supply of natural gas from Russia to Europe through Ukraine, the price of international crude oil futures closed up sharply overnight. PX supply and demand continued to be tight, PTA recently reduced the burden more, and the limit rose last night. Recently, the supply side of ethylene glycol has increased, but at present, the port inventory is low and the rebound space is limited. Recently, the production reduction of staple fiber maintenance has increased, the operating load has decreased, many downstream yarn mills just need to purchase, and the weaving terminal orders are poor, which are only sporadic orders. The staple fiber futures closed up in shock today.

 

Business analysts believe that the recent adjustment of crude oil shock is relatively strong, and the cost side support of polyester staple fiber is strong. In the short term, the supply and demand in the north of Jiangsu is still tight. However, in the later stage, some staple fiber devices are expected to restart. In the future, it is expected that polyester staple fiber will be relatively strong in the short term.

Thiourea

2、 Market analysis

 

At present, the mainstream price of bromine enterprises in Shandong is about 55000-56000 yuan / ton, and the bromine price is deadlocked. Now there is no inventory pressure on bromine enterprises as a whole, and the intention to support the price is obvious. Downstream flame retardants, pharmaceutical intermediates industry procurement enthusiasm is OK, but more on-demand procurement.

 

In terms of raw materials, the price of domestic sulfur increased. The average market price at the beginning of the week was about 3586.67 yuan / ton, and the average market price at the weekend was 3683.33 yuan / ton, with a price increase of 2.69% and a year-on-year increase of 147.76%. The inventory of domestic refineries is low and there is no pressure on the inventory of manufacturers. During the May Day holiday, the sulfur demand is stable and positive. The quotation in Shandong Province is slightly increased. Individual enterprises adjust the quotation according to their own shipment situation, and the sulfur price of refineries in Shandong Province is increased by 20-50 yuan / ton. The downstream sulfuric acid market is weak, the support for sulfur is weakened, the market of ammonium phosphate is temporarily stable, the fertilizer for spring ploughing is coming to an end, and the downstream purchase is mainly on demand.

 

Business analysts believe that bromine prices have been adjusted and operated recently, enterprises have no inventory pressure, bromine enterprises mostly support prices, bromine downstream flame retardants and intermediate industries start to purchase on demand, enterprises actively ship goods, and buyers and sellers still play a game. It is comprehensively expected that the main players in the short-term bromine price adjustment will depend on the downstream market demand.

Monthly evaluation of ethylene glycol (April 2022)

1、 Price trend

 

According to the data of business agency, on April 29, the average price of P value of oil-based ethylene glycol was 4891.67 yuan / ton, down 83.33 yuan / ton compared with the previous statistical cycle.

 

Thiourea

2、 Analysis of influencing factors

 

Unit: the 600000 ton ethylene glycol unit in sanning, Hubei Province has a load reduction operation plan since May and will be overhauled in June; The 300000 ton ethylene glycol unit of Qianxi coal chemical industry and the 120000 ton ethylene glycol unit of Inner Mongolia Yigao have maintenance plans in May; Shenhua Yulin 400000 ton ethylene glycol plant is planned to be shut down for maintenance for about 20 days in early June.

 

The price focus of ethylene glycol fell this month and the trading was deadlocked. As of April 28, the total inventory of ethylene glycol in the main port of East China was 1151500 tons, a decrease of 1500 tons or 0.13% compared with last Thursday, and an increase of 13500 tons or 1.19% compared with Monday. The operating rate of ethylene glycol fell sharply this month, and the load reduction and shutdown of EG unit increased. Due to the low operating rate and limited logistics, the enthusiasm of polyester manufacturers to pick up goods was affected, the remaining MEG tank space in the port continued to be tightened, and the overall supply surface was still slightly abundant. International crude oil is still at a high level. Some analysts pointed out that if there is a broader and longer blockade in May and beyond, there will be a continuous downward risk in domestic oil demand and prices, and the oil market will continue to fluctuate widely under pressure. At present, the demand support of downstream polyester for MEG is still weak. The average polymerization rate of polyester in April is expected to be around 87%, but there is a strong expectation.

 

3、 Forecast: Although the thrust brought by the current crude oil market is large, the demand side is constrained and the surge is still subject to resistance. It may be improved after the demand side is improved.

In April 2022, supply and demand were both weak, and tin prices fell by 3.72% month on month

In April 2022, the domestic 1# tin ingot market price fluctuated widely, and the overall trend remained downward. The average price in the domestic market was 3491300 yuan / ton at the beginning of the month and 336130 yuan / ton at the end of the month, down 3.72%.

 

Thiourea

On April 29, the base metal index was 1504 points, up 2 points from yesterday, down 6.93% from the highest point of 1616 points in the cycle (2022-03-09), and up 134.27% from the lowest point of 642 points on November 24, 2015. (Note: the period refers to the period from December 1, 2011 to now).

 

During the Qingming Festival holiday, the domestic futures market was closed. At the beginning of the month, boosted by the rise of crude oil, the metal market generally rose, and Lunxi rose. Later, with the rise of the US dollar, the metal market was generally under pressure, and the opening of Lunxi was under pressure. Shanghai tin basically followed the trend of Lunxi, rising first and then falling, falling from the high level on the 6th, and the price of domestic spot market followed the futures market down sharply. Later, as the domestic fundamentals of supply and demand were both weak, the market was on the sidelines, and the tin price remained wide and volatile for about half a month. After the 19th, Shanghai tin ushered in the main contract month change. From a fundamental point of view, the problem of raw materials in supply and demand has been alleviated to some extent. On the supply side, the market is expected to improve with the improvement of the import side in April and the overall supply will improve after some Indonesian sources enter the market. The operating rate of downstream end users on the demand side has increased to a certain extent, but the downstream demand has not fully recovered due to various factors. The overall demand is still weak, and the tin price has declined due to the drag of demand.

 

In the future, the business society believes that the overall performance of supply and demand is weak in terms of fundamentals, and there is little change in tin fundamentals. The tin price fluctuates with the overall market sentiment. Low inventory is still the main factor to boost the tin price. LME inventory and domestic inventory are low as a whole. It is expected that the low inventory in the future will support the high shock of tin price.

Thiourea

In April, the TDI market was weak and downward, and the price fell continuously during the month. At the beginning of the month, the two factories in Shanghai reduced the negative operation, carried out prevention and control in many places, blocked logistics and transportation, difficult shipment of enterprises, and poor reception in the downstream. However, the downstream was affected by the epidemic, the terminal industry was depressed, the market demand was weak, the overall atmosphere was cold, traders offered profits for shipment, the price was continuously reduced, the on-site trading was still not improved, and the TDI market continued to operate in a weak position.

 

The upstream toluene market fluctuated and sorted out. On April 28, the price was 7310 yuan / ton, down 28.31% from 7690 yuan / ton at the beginning of the month. Affected by public health events, the market demand for toluene was weak at the beginning of the month, the on-site logistics and transportation were blocked, the demand for gasoline decreased, and the price fell continuously. Since the late mid month, with the rebound of gasoline prices, market transactions have improved, the industry has a good attitude, and the price of toluene has rebounded. At the end of the month, there was no active gap filling in the downstream, and the price fell again.

 

According to the analysis of TDI data division of business society, at present, the downstream demand of the domestic TDI market is weak, the terminal purchase is just needed, there is no pressure on the supplier’s inventory, and the goods holders sell goods at a profit. However, due to logistics restrictions, the market trading progress is slow, and the on-site operators have a strong wait-and-see mentality. It is expected that the short-term TDI market will be put into operation.
