On April 12, 2021, the price of metallic silicon (441) was lowered. According to the data of business news agency, the average market price of domestic silicon metal (441) was 13291.67 yuan / ton on April 12, a decrease of 2.57% compared with the average market price of 13641.67 yuan / ton at the beginning of April (4.1).
On December 12, the prices of 441 silicon in different regions were as follows:
The price range of silicon metal in Fujian is 12700-12900 yuan / ton, that in Sichuan is 13100-13300 yuan / ton, that in Kunming is 13000-13200 yuan / ton, that in Shanghai is 13800-14000 yuan / ton, that in Tianjin is 13300-13400 yuan / ton, and that in Huangpu is 13300-13500 yuan / ton .
Today, the silicon price of the port generally fell, with a drop of 150-200 yuan / ton. At present, the silicon price fell mainly based on two factors.
First, the south is expected to have abundant water, and the Southwest has a high operating rate, so the current market supply is relatively sufficient. Although the social inventory of silicon metal in the three places is slightly lower than that at the beginning of this month, with a range of about 7000 tons, the overall supply and demand is expected, and the market expects a larger increase in the supply side.
Second, after a wave of soaring prices in the downstream market, terminal consumption is under pressure, and the driving force of silicon metal based on the demand side is weakened.
