zircon sand

This week's zircon sand quotation maintained last week's quotation, 65% high-grade zircon sand tax ex-factory price is 12 300-12 500 yuan / ton, but some of the transaction price is lower than the quotation.

The reason is that the downstream terminal market is sluggish, which can not digest market stocks, resulting in a cold deal. In particular, zirconium silicate industry is the largest application industry downstream of zircon sand. Zircon silicate enterprises now have sufficient stocks of zircon sand, and because of weak sales, procurement demand is not high this quarter, the lower demand support for zircon sand is weak, the latter should be mainly light trading.

Zirconium silicate

The output of the ceramic industry has shrunk dramatically this year, down 18.9% compared with last year, and the size of the ceramic industry is shrinking. Influenced by the slump in the ceramic market, the zirconium silicate market is difficult to sustain. At present, 64.5% of high-grade zirconium silicate is still quoted at 14000-14500 yuan / ton, but the transaction price is close to the low price, and the shutdown of the zirconium silicate plant is very common, and the operating rate continues to decline.

Some zirconium silicate low prices have been hanging upside down, but because the current zirconium silicate enterprises still digest the inventory before, there is still room for profit. But because there is no sign of improvement in the ceramic industry at this stage, so some enterprises will worry that the latter ceramic factory shutdown will continue to increase, but zirconium silicate competition will intensify, prices will continue to decline.

Zirconium oxychloride

With the high price of zircon sand and high price of caustic soda, the cost pressure of zirconium oxychloride increases, resulting in the price increase of some zirconium oxychloride enterprises one after another. At present, the quotation is about 16800-17300 yuan / ton, but the downstream demand still not improve, and the overall market transaction is general. Some enterprises are in the wait-and-see state, but the price adjustment intention is quite strong.

Rising prices play an active role in the zirconium oxychloride market, but the demand is insufficient, plus the late heating period, the latter should be stable-state zirconium oxychloride market.

Fused zirconium

The price of fused zirconium has not changed much since the price of raw materials increased. The mainstream quotation is about 32000-34000 yuan / ton. Some enterprises have raised the quotation by 1000 yuan / ton, but the price increase is lower than the increase of raw material cost.

Although the cost of fused zirconium has increased considerably, the weak downstream market and insufficient demand have led to insufficient incentives for price increases. Especially now the weather is getting colder and colder, the North has entered the heating season, plus the impact of environmental protection inspection, the transaction is still relatively not active, late price increases are more difficult..
