Influence of soda ash price on glass Market

wallpapers News 2020-09-23

Soda ash is one of the main raw materials for glass production, its cost accounts for about 30% of the cost of glass production.

After experiencing the industry trough last year, the trend of soda ash market in the first half of this year has not improved, the price of soda ash is also hovering around the bottom of 1300 yuan / ton.

In order to protect their own interests, most enterprises have implemented the policy of production restriction price protection for a long time, resulting in the low operating load of the whole industry, the enthusiasm of new capacity investment has also been hit.

In 2012, the capacity of domestic soda ash reached 28.

61 million tons, the output was 23.

862 million tons, the annual operating rate was about 83.4%. Up to now, the domestic production capacity of soda ash was 29.

05 million tons, only 440000 tons higher than last year.

The output of soda ash from January to November was 21.

87 million tons, with a cumulative year-on-year decrease of 1.48%. However, with the obvious growth of glass production in the downstream, soda ash dem has steadily increased since this year.

at the same time, at the end of the third quarter, due to the superposition effect of the overall low construction of the industry the traditional maintenance in summer, the supply of soda ash is tight, the price of soda ash rebounds rapidly.

Summer is the traditional maintenance peak season of soda ash industry.

Since July, Shong Haihua (000822), Tangshan Sanyou other large soda manufacturing enterprises have carried out equipment maintenance.

In addition, in early September, Hubei Shuanghuan science Technology (000707) was ordered to stop production for rectification due to its suspected over stard discharge of pollutants, which aroused a thous layer waves, to a certain extent, restrained the promotion of industrial start-up.

At the same time, the dem for soda ash glass in the downstream industry has increased significantly.

Affected by this, the supply of soda ash market has been tight since the third quarter, supply in some areas has been in short supply, which has promoted the price rebound of soda ash.

Up to now, the price of heavy caustic soda in East China has risen to about 1700 yuan / ton, nearly 300 yuan / ton higher than the price at the beginning of the year, or more than 20%.

Compared with the use of fuel, soda ash is one of the necessary raw materials for glass production, so the price rise of soda ash will have a general impact on the whole glass manufacturing industry.

According to the consumption of 0.

2 tons of soda ash per ton of glass produced by general enterprises, the cost of soda ash in glass cost has increased by about 60 yuan / ton since this year.

Thanks to the market effect brought about by production restriction price protection dem recovery, the soda ash industry as a whole is in a warming pattern, but the industry's start-up has not been significantly improved.

At present, the overall start-up is still around 83%.

It is expected that the output of soda ash this year will be basically the same as that of last year or slightly reduced.

In 2014, the supply of soda ash will gradually recover, but the asymmetry with the growth rate of supply dem in the downstream flat glass market will still exist.

The price of soda ash will be supported or will maintain an upward trend, which will continue to push up the cost of glass production.
