China Abrasive Materials Weekly Price (5-11 Oct): Production limits in winter heating season launch
This week, due to the continued stability of the raw material alumina price, the price of white fused alumina in China also maintained stable.
This week, due to the overall low operating rate of enterprises in the main production areas of brown fused alumina, such as Yichuan, Dengfeng, and Jiaozuo cities in Henan Province, some local suppliers have shown their willingness to increase prices after the National Day holiday. It is expected that in the coming week, with the official start of the current heating season, the willingness to increase the price of abrasive materials such as brown fused alumina may further increase.
The Ministry of Ecology and Environment issued an action plan for comprehensive control of air pollution in autumn and winter from 2020 to 2021 in Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei and its surrounding areas. This action will strongly affect the production of fused abrasive material manufacturers.
This week, China's black silicon carbide market has been operating relatively strongly. The price increase in Gansu has been relatively obvious. The market transaction performance is fair, but some downstream abrasive tools companies are still sitting on the fence. Whether the price can be firm in the later period need to be further verified in the market.
This week, the domestic green silicon carbide market has a stable transaction performance, and manufacturers have no intention to adjust product prices, and product prices may continue to hold firm.
