  • 2017-11-20Currently, high-concentration caustic soda was stable in Shandong. However, as Shandong Jinling units restarted, the local 50% caustic soda would go down. In the northwest, price dropped since last week. In East and South China, downstream was in moderate demand, but the cost was high. Factories’pre-orders were scheduled until end of December, and there were not many new cargos in the market. It is expected that the market will keep stable. The reference price was $850/mt FOB Qingdao.Detail
  • 2017-11-13High-end price in Zibo dropped, and other areas stable. In Northwest, the inventory was low, and pre-sales orders remained. Downstream demand was mainly from alumina, and others were moderate, giving insufficient support. Some alumina markets went down. With possible production limitation, sodium hydroxide is expected to keep stable with flexible orders, but may drop in the future. The reference price was $860/mt FOB Qingdao.Detail
  • 2017-11-06The sodium hydroxide market remained stable. Mainstream ex-works for 96% caustic soda flakes were in the range of RMB 5,000-5,500/mt. Mainstream ex-works prices for 99% caustic soda flakes were in the range of RMB 5,050-5,550/mt. Currently, the caustic soda flakes units in Zibo are shut. The supply in Northwest China is also tight. However, the downstream users were unwilling to buy high-priced goods. It is predicted that the caustic soda flakes market will move marginally. Reference prices were $860/mt FOB Qingdao. Detail
  • 2017-10-30The sodium hydroxide market ran upwards. The prices of sodium hydroxide in Shandong and Inner Mongolia increased prices in the range of RMB 150-300/mt. The liquid caustic prices increased continually. The production cost of sodium hydroxide in local area increased. Furthermore, because of the environment protection supervision, the units will be shut in the future. The supply in Northwest will continue to be tight, which will promote the price increasing.
