One week electrode paste Market Analysis
Market dynamics of electrode paste: Recently, the price of domestic electrode paste tends to decline steadily, and the market transaction atmosphere is flat. Downstream industries such as calcium carbide and ferroalloy are still in a weak consolidation stage, and electrode paste lacks solid demand support.
The market situation of electrode paste continues to be depressed, and the sales volume has not been guaranteed for a long time. Downstream calcium carbide enterprises are still on the sidelines, with prices rising and falling, which is the primary drag on the demand for electrode paste. Moreover, under the situation of unstable support of electrode paste raw materials, users such as calcium carbide have a high price depression mentality, and the price of electrode paste is quite stable and declining. On the other hand, the acceptance sales model brings great pressure to the production and operation of enterprises, and the capital circulation bears a great test. At present, the downstream operating rate has not yet returned to the normal level. It is expected that the short-term market demand for electrode paste will be difficult to improve, and will continue to be weak and stable, and the price reduction will not be easy.
Price: domestic sealed paste a<4, the mainstream transaction price is about 3400 yuan / ton; A<5 the mainstream price is about 3100 yuan / ton; A<6 the mainstream transaction price is about 2900 yuan / ton.
The domestic electrode paste market operates smoothly as a whole, and the demand is weak for a long time. Although the downstream has a strong desire to reduce the price, the quotation of manufacturers is still stable. Raw electric calcined coal is weak, and petroleum coke is not much better. On the whole, it is similar to the weak trend of electrode paste. The downstream calcium carbide market is in the wait-and-see stage, and the operating rate remains at the level of 5-60%. The enterprise is cautious, and the demand for electrode paste has not been fully released.
