This week (2022.1.21-2022.1.27) China's liquid caustic soda market has partially increased. This week, the liquid caustic soda market in Northwest China rose a lot, while the price of liquid caustic soda in Guangdong and Guangdong regions in South China increased within a narrow range, and the liquid caustic soda market in East China remained stable.
The key points of the market price of liquid caustic soda in various regions are as follows: the price of 32% ionic membrane liquid caustic soda used in Shandong alumina industry will be 800 yuan/ton in spot exchange from January 25, and the mainstream spot exchange ex-factory price for other customers is 820-980 yuan/ton; Hebei The ex-factory price of 32% ionic membrane liquid caustic soda in the region is 870-1120 yuan/ton; the ex-factory price of 32% ionic-membrane liquid caustic soda in Inner Mongolia is 2500-2600 yuan/ton (100%); the ex-factory price of 32% ionic membrane liquid caustic soda in Fujian is 1200-1400 yuan /Ton.
The market outlook predicts that the long-order price of liquid caustic soda will rise in many places this week. Looking at next week, the spring break is approaching, and downstream manufacturers in some parts of East China will reduce production or stop work. There should be signs of shrinkage, but there are export orders to support them. Keep calm. At present, the inventory level of manufacturers in Shandong is not high. In the later stage, alumina production may be reduced due to the Winter Olympics, and the market may stabilize and decline. The price of liquid caustic soda in Northwest China remained at a high level. The price adjustment is expected to be 20-60 yuan/ton.
