Domestic fluorite price drops sharply in 2019


According to the monitoring, the price of fluorite in China fell sharply. At the end of the year, the price of fluorite was 2894.44 yuan / ton, down 20.34% compared with 3633.33 yuan / ton at the beginning of the year. In 2019, the highest price of fluorite was 3633.33 yuan / ton, and the lowest price of fluorite was 2815 yuan / ton on April 22. In 2019, the supply of fluorite in China is a little tight. Due to the impact of environmental protection problems, there are many domestic manufacturers that have stopped production of fluorite, and the market price of fluorite is still supported.

2. Market price of hydrofluoric acid "diving" in 2019


According to the monitoring results, the price of domestic hydrofluoric acid Market in 2019 dropped sharply. As of the end of the year, the price of domestic hydrofluoric acid market was 10240 yuan / ton, 24.84% lower than the market price of 13625 yuan / ton at the beginning of the year. In 2019, the highest price of hydrofluoric acid market was 13625 yuan / ton, the lowest price was 9600 yuan / ton, the lowest price was on November 21, and the largest amplitude in China was 41.93 %. In 2018, the market of fluorine chemical industry was lower, and the market price of hydrofluoric acid was significantly lower.

3. Effective export control: Japan's export of HF to South Korea was zero in August

Japan's Ministry of Finance released trade statistics of various varieties in August, showing that the volume and amount of hydrogen fluoride used to clean semiconductors exported to South Korea were both zero, highlighting the impact of Japan's opening of export controls on South Korea. Statistics also show that Japan's beer exports fell 92.2% month on month. According to analysis, this is due to the rebound of South Korea's strengthened control over Japan, that is, the impact of its domestic boycott of Japanese goods.

The government reviews every contract after the application is made by the enterprise. According to the analysis, exports have been approved since August, but it is said that the trade statistics "include the actual data of the export approval stage from the customs".

It is reported that the export volume of hydrogen fluoride in July also decreased by 83.7% month on month, to 479 tons. The other two materials are "fluorinated polyimide" for organic EL display screen of smart phone and "photoresist" coated on semiconductor substrate. Due to statistical classification, the export volume and other data cannot be mastered.

4. The era of low GWP refrigerant is coming

At the press conference of 2019 China Refrigeration Exhibition held in Shanghai, the head of fluorochemicals business of comer said that with the continuous upgrading of global environmental regulations and the continuous development of low global warming potential (GWP) products, the market of fluororefrigerants is now in the transition stage from traditional refrigerants to more environmentally friendly low GWP refrigerants. The era of low GWP is coming.



When asked about issues related to the low GWP era, Joseph t. martinko, global business and marketing director of opteon and HFO products, said: "the low GWP era is a concept of the fluorine chemicals market. At present, this market is in the transition stage from traditional refrigerant to a more environmentally friendly low GWP refrigerant. "
