In August, monoammonium phosphate rose first and then fell. In the first half of August, due to better demand, the price of monoammonium phosphate began to rise, and the operating rate of the enterprise was about 70%. The price of monoammonium phosphate is still high, supported by the price of raw materials, and the downstream is purchased on demand. Some enterprises have stopped production for maintenance. In the second half of August, the trading began to be stable, the atmosphere in the venue was flat, and the waiting volume of enterprises decreased. Due to the rising price of raw sulfur, the price of monoammonium phosphate is always at a high level. At the end of August, the price of monoammonium phosphate fell, and the operating rate of the enterprise was about 66%. The trend of monoammonium phosphate is weak. Although the rise of raw material price is supported, the downstream compound fertilizer is weak and the procurement is reduced. By the end of the month, the factory quotation of 55% powdered ammonium in China was about 3550-3650 yuan / ton. The factory quotation of 58% powdered ammonium is about 3800 yuan / ton.

In August, diammonium phosphate rose first and then fell. In the first half of August, the enterprise had a large waiting volume, tight supply, good downstream demand, and the price of diammonium phosphate increased. In the second half of August, the domestic supply was tight, the orders were mainly export, and the price of diammonium phosphate was stable. At the end of the month, the waiting volume of enterprises was still large, the supply was insufficient, and the price of diammonium phosphate was reduced. The price of raw materials rose and the cost support was strong. Take goods on demand in the downstream and take a wait-and-see attitude. By the end of the month, the factory quotation of 64% mainstream diammonium in Hubei was 3550-3650 yuan / ton, and that of 64% mainstream diammonium in North China was 3400-3500 yuan / ton.

Raw phosphate rock rose by 2.42% in August. At the end of the month, the reference average price in the mainstream areas of 30% grade phosphorus ore in China was around 563 yuan / ton, and the price increased by 13 yuan / ton compared with the beginning of the month. In the first ten days of August, the market as a whole operated stably at a high level, the operating rate of the mine was low, the spot supply of medium and high-end phosphorus ore was tight, and most orders were from old customers. In late August, the domestic phosphate ore market closed to the high end again, and some mining enterprises in Guizhou raised the price of medium and high-end phosphate ore again.

3、 Future forecast

According to the ammonium phosphate analysts of the business society, the current ammonium phosphate market transaction is flat, the raw material price rises, and the cost is supported. At present, the number of orders to be issued is reduced, and the market trend is gradually weak.

According to the monitoring data of the business society, the East China market was quoted at 25240 yuan / ton at the beginning of the month, and the East China market rose to 28040 yuan / ton at the end of the month, which is still far from the expected 30000 yuan. It can be seen from the market trend of bisphenol A in East China that the market tends to be stable after several days of bisphenol a rising in August, Up to now, in the national market, the negotiation range is 28000-28200 yuan / ton, and there are fewer and fewer cargo holders near the end of the month. Under the situation of tight market supply, there are few market transactions, and the downstream just needs to supplement the high price bisphenol A.

In August, the epichlorohydrin market fluctuated and the overall trend rose. According to the bulk list data of business society, as of August 31, the average quotation price of epichlorohydrin enterprises was 14400 yuan / ton, an increase of 7.33% compared with the price at the beginning of the month, and a year-on-year increase of 6.93% in a three-month cycle. At the beginning of the month, the market situation of epichlorohydrin was mainly rising, the demand for inventory and replenishment in the downstream was positive, the factory delivered orders, the spot supply was tight, the manufacturers supported the market, and the focus of market negotiation gradually increased. With the centralized replenishment in the downstream, the pace of market trading slowed down, coupled with the news of the restart of some parking devices, the wait-and-see mentality in the downstream dominated, and the transaction atmosphere was weak, The focus of market negotiation decreased. In the second half of the month, the price of raw glycerol was high, and the market stopped falling and rebounded due to the news of accidental shutdown of large factories in the region. In the latter half of the year, the price of glycerol goods was tight, the cost support was strong, the manufacturers mainly delivered orders, the spot supply was tight, and the downstream just needed to purchase, which pushed up the market.

At present, the downstream is relatively exclusive of high price goods, mainly consuming early orders, and there is an obvious shortage of new orders and insufficient actual orders.

From the perspective of business society, the cost is strongly supported. Under the continuous shortage of bisphenol a supply, it may continue to operate at a high level in the short term, epichlorohydrin is steadily promoted, and epoxy resin operates at a high level in the short term under the cost support; The business agency expects that the epoxy resin market will be sorted and operated in a short period, and the offer of liquid epoxy resin in East China is 35500 yuan / ton barrel ex factory price.

Commodity index: on August 22, the commodity index of polyaluminium chloride was 93.81, unchanged from yesterday, down 13.94% from the highest point 109.01 in the cycle (2019-08-28), and up 11.25% from the lowest point 84.32 on August 18, 2020( Note: period refers to 2019-04-01 to now)

Thiourea

The monitoring found that in the third week of August 2021, the mainstream market of polyaluminum chloride in China was stable. The domestic mainstream price of solid (industrial grade, content ≥ 28%) polyaluminum chloride on the 1st was 1687.78 yuan / ton, and the mainstream price from the 16th to the 22nd was stable at 1735.56 yuan / ton, with an increase of 2.83% so far this month.

Industrial chain: in terms of upstream raw materials, hydrochloric acid: Shandong market. From the manufacturer’s quotation, the manufacturer’s quotation in the hydrochloric acid market this week is temporarily stable, and the overall market is general. The quotation of Dezhou Shihua hydrochloric acid is 400 yuan / ton, and the quotation is stable temporarily; The quotation of synthetic hydrochloric acid from Wen Shui is 230 yuan / ton at the weekend, which is temporarily stable compared with that at the beginning of the week; Dezhou Maihua hydrochloric acid quoted 160 yuan / ton at the weekend, which was temporarily stable compared with that at the beginning of the week. From the perspective of the upstream and downstream industrial chain of hydrochloric acid, the market situation of upstream liquid chlorine is general and the support for hydrochloric acid is weak, while the high market price of downstream ammonium chloride has a positive impact on hydrochloric acid. Difficult delivery of hydrochloric acid is still a big problem. In Henan market, according to local water treatment enterprises, under the requirements of environmental protection policies, many hydrochloric acid enterprises in Gongyi area stopped production for maintenance, the supply of hydrochloric acid was tight, the price increased greatly, the enterprise cost increased, which caused certain difficulties to production, and also increased the cost price of polyaluminium chloride from the cost side; Under the condition of sufficient inventory, most polyaluminium chloride remained stable this week, and a few prices increased slightly. The situation of bauxite is similar to that of hydrochloric acid. The price increases and the cost of poly aluminum enterprises increases.

Secondly, liquefied natural gas is used in the production process. Recently, the domestic LNG market continued to rise, with a slight correction. On August 16, the domestic liquid price was at a high level, the price was increased by a narrow margin, and the market focus continued to move upward. By the 20th, the prices of some manufacturers had a slight correction. According to the analysis of the business society, the current cost support, the domestic liquid price is high, the price fluctuates in a narrow range, and the actual transaction negotiation is the main. It is expected that the domestic LNG market will be strong in the short term.

Downstream demand: due to the impact of Rainstorm in the early stage, the logistics transportation is limited, and the downstream demand is blocked. According to the introduction of enterprises in the main production area, the impact is gradually decreasing in the later stage. Except that the price of some raw materials is high due to the tension of shutdown, the road continues to recover. It is reported that at the end of the third week, Gongyi suffered another rainstorm disaster, but the local response to the rainstorm disaster was strengthened. Some areas were shut down for a few days, the degree of disaster was greatly reduced, and the production of local enterprises was not greatly affected. In Shandong and other parts of China, the weather this week has little impact on water treatment enterprises. It is reported that the current demand has not changed significantly, and the purchase price has not changed much.

Future forecast: according to the analysis of business society, in the future, with the weakening impact of weather conditions, the current market of water treatment industry is greatly affected by the price of raw materials, especially hydrochloric acid and bauxite. In addition to the communication function of the industrial chain, the supply of some enterprises is slightly tight, and the downstream demand is obviously better in the upcoming peak consumption season, the polyaluminium chloride market is strong and upward, which is more likely; Otherwise, it is mainly stable.
