The recarburizer is mainly a calcined coal recarburizer, a calcined coke recarburizer and a graphitized petroleum coke recarburizer.
(2018.09.21) This week, the domestic carbon refining agent market started to be stable, with good trading, and the prices of all grades were stable. Due to the influence of many factors such as environmental protection and trade wars, the downstream steel mills are affected by many factors such as environmental protection and trade warfare. In general, the shipment of recarburizers is limited. In addition, while the enterprises are in environmental protection, the production is basically stable and there are some stocks. The price factor is small. The overall performance of the post-calcined coke recarburizer market was stable. The company said that although the price is high, the supply and demand side is relatively balanced, and the company is steadily moving forward; the graphitization and recarburizer market has raised the price of individual enterprises, the market is well shipped, and the production situation of the enterprise is relatively high. stable.
General calcined coal recarburizer
This week, the mainstream price of China's general calcined recarburizer market remained stable. The enterprises in Ningxia, the main producing area, started low, and the market supply was relatively stable. The 60th anniversary of the establishment of the autonomous region was a celebration of local transportation. The production in the North China market is stable and the environmental protection pressure is still relatively large. Downstream steel mills are affected by environmental protection, limited start-ups, relatively stable demand, and bearish prices for recarburizers.
The calcined coal recarburizer has a close relationship with the steel market. This week, domestic steel prices have been adjusted and operated steadily. The misunderstanding of the environmental protection policy has been revised. The Sino-US trade war has intensified. The NDRC has indicated that it will increase the infrastructure to fill the shortcomings. Zhenzhen expects long-term demand. In the short-term, the downstream demand performance is acceptable, the inventory is low, and the cost end support is strong. It is expected that the short-term domestic steel market will be consolidating.
Calcined coke recarburizer
This week, the mainstream price of China's calcined coke market remained stable, and the company started to recover more than before, mainly supported by the price of raw material petroleum coke, and the cost pressure was reduced. However, in view of the high price in the downstream market, the price intention is weak, the production enterprises are still shipping, and the price of the carbonizer has not yet fully fluctuated. In terms of petroleum coke, the petroleum coke index of Sinopec's refinery is basically stable, the shipment performance is acceptable, and there is no new change in the device dynamics. As the Mid-Autumn Festival and the National Day are approaching, the refinery's willingness to trade will increase, while the downstream enterprises will purchase more on demand. It is expected that the price of petroleum coke will remain stable in the short term. In addition, due to the upcoming winter heating season in Xinjiang, the downstream enterprises will increase their enthusiasm for receiving goods. Therefore, the petroleum coke in the northwest region is relatively better.
Raw materials: medium and high sulfur calcined coke: This week, the domestic medium and high sulfur calcined coke market was stable, and the coke price was unchanged from last week. This week, environmental protection has not affected the production of calcined enterprises in various regions. It is understood that at present, most of the calcined coke production enterprises are mainly engaged in the implementation of pre-contracts. For the time being, most of them have no inventory pressure. Recently, the downstream part of the contract has begun to reduce prices, and the price of petroleum coke still has downside risks.
Graphitized petroleum coke recarburizer
This week, the market price of China's graphitized petroleum coke recarburizer was stable, the price of raw material petroleum coke fell, and the cost pressure slowed down. Among them, the production of individual enterprises in Henan and Xinjiang was suspended due to environmental protection, and the operating rate fell. In addition, the graphitization enterprises of anode materials in the market will start construction in the second half of the year, and the output will be released. Graphitization and recarburizers are highly concentrated in Inner Mongolia. Enterprises in Jiangsu Province have normal production, good shipments and smooth exports.
Forecast of the market outlook: the price of raw material per-calcined coal will rebound in September due to the limited price of environmental protection acceptance enterprises, and the price of general calcined carbonizer will develop in a stable-up mode. Among them, the price of calcined coke and graphitized recarburizer is driven by cost, and the price may rise.
