Power gradually lost phosphate prices or have reached the top

Recent phosphate market, with the high price of raw phosphorus phosphorus stabilized, and short-term downstream demand weakened, the export situation did not appear a positive turn for the better, coupled with the end of the year off-season, the overall market showed placid weakness trend.

Yellow phosphorus pull kinetic energy disappeared downstream follow the trend of price rise

Since the third quarter of this year, yellow phosphorus as a ton of product power consumption of up to 15000 kwh of high energy-consuming industries, in some of the main producing areas by energy-saving emission reduction pressures, generally encountered limited production limit, production capacity is greatly bound, led to a domestic Wheel prices soared, the market price rose to the current 17,500 yuan (t price, the same below) or so. Affected by the yellow phosphorus market, the downstream phosphate prices rose a wave of rising prices, such as the main varieties of sodium tripolyphosphate, sodium pyrophosphate prices from the previous 6,000 yuan rose to 7,000 yuan.

The industry generally believe that the current period to the end of this period of time, is the key moment of energy conservation and emission reduction, Yunnan, Guizhou and Sichuan and other yellow phosphorus main producing areas are facing more stringent energy-saving emission reduction supervision measures, although the market for yellow phosphorus enterprises have more Large temptation, but the overall rate of yellow phosphorus by the policy constraints will not increase, the market supply is difficult to increase, so yellow phosphorus prices in the short term to maintain stability is too large, even if the fall, the decline in space is limited. Therefore, affected by the stabilization of the price of yellow phosphorus, this conductivity factor has clearly ended the phosphate prices continue to follow the reasons for the rise, the signs have emerged, the price or will decline slightly.

Holiday market gradually drifting into the traditional off-season market

The third quarter has always been the peak season of phosphate sales, especially the Mid-Autumn Festival, National Day two early festivals. Food grade phosphate is the golden season of the year, mainly used for aquatic products, meat products, flour products, dairy processing industry. But the late season began to come, the phosphate has no greater market demand. And industrial-grade product demand, by the detergent limit phosphorus ban, as a detergent aids in the demand for sodium tripolyphosphate gradually shrinking, new areas of new use slow development. Now, industrial-grade phosphate products are limited to the use of the ceramic industry, electroplating industry and a few traditional areas, the growth is extremely slow.

At present, manufacturers seem to be eager to expand the phosphate products in food processing, feed, medicine, electronics and other areas of use, but the short term these demand growth is not satisfactory. According to Jiangsu Xuzhou Cologne Phosphate Co., Ltd. General Manager Zhao Jun introduced to the consumption of phosphate as an example, although the production has reached dozens of varieties, but according to China's "food additives use health standards" standard, included in the appendix only three Sodium polyphosphate, sodium pyrophosphate, sodium dihydrogen phosphate, potassium dihydrogen phosphate, trisodium phosphate, potassium tripolyphosphate, sodium hexametaphosphate and so on more than 10 varieties. Not in the catalog of products, is strictly prohibited to be used in food processing, which undoubtedly limits the other varieties into the food processing industry. "Each item in the catalog to do a lot of experiments to do a lot of experiments, not only need to do the authority of the department, and huge investment, the experimental cycle is longer, it is clearly not the production enterprises can complete.Therefore, far from the thunder, The market is expected not too high. "Zhao said. In addition, since June 1 this year, "Food Safety Law" has been implemented, not in accordance with its provisions of the species or the maximum use of food processing, will face high economic penalties. Therefore, the end of the year before the consumption of phosphate-type lack of obvious market demand, prices will not continue to rise.

Export situation is difficult to improve the industry needs to be eliminated

As the domestic phosphate enterprises disorderly competition within the serious internal friction, export prices are not high, the industry gross margin is very low. Since July 15 this year, the State Ministry of Finance and the State Administration of Taxation issued "on the cancellation of some goods export tax rebate notice" after the implementation of more than 10 phosphate varieties have been covered, which undoubtedly increased the cost of export enterprises. Such as the current price of sodium triphosphate 7,000 dollars, according to the implementation of export tax rebate rate of 5%, increase the export cost of about 350 yuan. This burden, in addition to the advantages of mine and phosphorus integration of enterprises, the general enterprises have lost the enthusiasm of the export.

At the same time, overseas market demand for phosphate products in China is also shrinking. Sichuan Mianyang Venus Phosphorus Chemical Co., Ltd. Deputy General Manager Wang Jian told reporters: "China's large-scale export of phosphate has been the historical period, in particular, industrial products, overseas market capacity is gradually shrinking." For export reasons are not optimistic, he said , In the case of China's technology output, the technical content of the phosphate industry is not high in some developing countries are rising, such as Tunisia has formed 150,000 tons of phosphate production capacity, Algeria's current phosphate production capacity has exceeded 250,000 tons turn off. China in the past annual exports of phosphate products 400,000 to 600,000 tons. This is why the domestic price of yellow phosphorus rose sharply, while the phosphate price can only follow the trend, and can not keep the root causes of the soaring synchronization.
