Zircon sand

The price of 65% high grade sand with tax is 11300-11700 yuan/ton, and that of 65% ordinary sand is 10700-11000 yuan/ton. Indonesian sand USD1480/ton, Iluka MB advanced sand USD 1610-1630/ton, Tronox Australia USD 1640-1650/ton, Tronox South Africa USD 1600-1620/ton, RBM ZUG USD 1550/ton. In the last week of September, the zircon sand market continued its usual tepid situation. The downstream market lacked confidence in the zircon sand market, had a strong wait-and-see attitude, and procurement was unsatisfactory. In particular, the subsequent stalemate is difficult to break, and may continue until October. With the coming of the National holiday, production restrictions, demand for zircon sands further reduced, and the market for zircon sands may be even colder.

Zirconium silicate

64.5% of the high-grade zirconium silicate is quoted at 13200-13800 yuan/ton, 63% of the ordinary zirconium silicate is between 12800-13000 yuan/ton. Some zirconium silicate factories in the north have stopped production because of environmental protection inspection, but the sales of zirconium silicate are hindered at this stage, especially the northern market is very weak, and the shutdown of zirconium silicate factories has no great impact on the market. Although the southern market is slightly better than the northern market, chatting is better than nothing. Gold, silver and ten have become absolute sounds. It seems that the cold winter of zirconium silicate is difficult to pass, and the cold enterprises are still struggling.

Zirconium oxychloride

At present, the quotation of zirconium oxychloride is about 15500-16000 yuan/ton, and part of the quotation is less than 15000 yuan/ton. According to Ruidow understanding, some enterprises have indicated that the price of zirconium oxychloride may be raised after National Day. The main reason is that some enterprises have stopped production recently and the inventory of zirconium oxychloride is decreasing continuously. On the other hand, with the increase of exchange rate, the price of flake alkali is also rising. Zirconium oxychloride enterprises also have cost pressures. There is a possibility of price increase. But at this stage, from the downstream demand is not very strong, terminal market procurement is still the most important factor to support price stability. Therefore, after the price adjustment of production enterprises, the downstream purchasing situation is the key to the continuation of the follow-up price.

Fused zirconium

 Fused zirconium quotation continues to maintain a stable and weak situation, the same enterprise competitiveness is not small. At present, the refractory grade of fused zirconium is about 2700-27500 yuan/ton, and the color grade of fused zirconium is about 28800-29500 yuan/ton. Frequent low turnover and weak terminal demand have made fused zirconium prices faltering. Some enterprises said that because there are few enterprises in the terminal market, price has become the most concerned aspect of purchasing for downstream enterprises, price wars are more common, downstream bargaining is very frequent, so the pressure of production at this stage is also great. Follow-up prices are difficult to rise, maintaining stability is the main task.
