Zircon Market Review(10.21-10.25)

Oct.29 2019      Source:ruidow


Zircon sand

The price of 65% advanced sand including tax is 11300-11600 yuan / ton, and that of 65 % ordinary sand is 10700-11000 yuan / ton. Indonesia sand is 1480 USD / T, Iluka MB high-grade sand is 1610-1630 USD / T, Tronox Australia is 1640-1650 USD / T, tronox South Africa is 1600-1620 USD / T, RBM Zug is 1550 USD / T.

According to the latest zircon sand import data, the volume of zircon sand imported this year has decreased compared with last year. It can also be seen that the demand for zircon sand in the downstream of this year is weak. However, the supply of zircon sand in the market is relatively sufficient at this stage. Although some suppliers of zircon sand have a strong desire for price firmness, they also have a lack of confidence in the enterprise, especially when the end of the year is near and the capital pressure of the enterprise is large, so it is not ruled out that the enterprise will ship goods at a low price to alleviate the capital pressure. However, the impact on market prices is expected to be limited.

Zirconium silicate

64.5% high-grade zirconium silicate is quoted at 13200-13800 yuan / ton, including tax. In fact, the market demand of zirconium silicate has always been very cold, but the main reason why its quotation has been stable is because of the stable cost, and the quotation of zirconium silicate is basically close to its production cost, and even some transaction prices on the market have been lower than the cost, there is no room for profit, and there is no way to reduce. In this case, the downstream ceramic market lost money, capacity reduction and other problems have been existed, the demand for zirconium silicate has been reduced to a large extent, and the willingness to purchase is not strong. This also leads to a stalemate between zirconium silicate and downstream, which may last for a long time.


The quotation of zirconium oxychloride is relatively stable, and the mainstream quotation is basically maintained at about 15500-16000 yuan / ton. The quotation of some enterprises is lower than 15500 yuan / ton, but the market transaction price is still lower. At this stage, the main market is still in a stable state, but the volume of transactions is not very strong, most downstream enterprises are basically purchasing on demand. In winter, affected by the heating season, there may be staggered peak production in the northern zirconium oxychloride production enterprises, but at this stage, the market inventory is relatively sufficient, and the market supply will not have a big impact. In the future, the market of yangafforested zirconium will continue to be weak and stable.

Fused zirconium

In recent years, the market of fused zirconium has declined, mainly due to the lack of procurement demand in the downstream and the cold market transactions. The downstream customers negotiate frequently, the sales of fused zirconium is relatively difficult, and the competition among enterprises is also fierce, which leads to the readjustment of fused zirconium price and the reduction of enterprise profits. With the coming of heating season at the end of the year, the environmental protection policy will be implemented, and the subsequent demand for fused zirconium will hardly rise greatly. The pursuit of price stability has become the main demand of the enterprise. At the same time, in the current situation of weak demand, the vicious competition of low price should be avoided as far as possible, so as to prevent the further reduction of price, which will lead to the loss of profits of the enterprise. At present, the quotation of refractory grade electric fused zirconium is 26000-26800 yuan / ton, and that of pigment grade electric fused zirconium is 27500-28300 yuan / ton.
