Since the beginning of this week, the domestic metal silicon price has gradually slowed down, and the market has ushered in a high consolidation stage. There is no obvious fluctuation or change for the time being. Most silicon plants have signed orders for August, and the monthly order prices have gradually become clear. This wave of metallurgical grade metals The price of silicon has risen up to around 600 yuan/ton; the price of chemical-grade metal silicon has risen up to around RMB 700/ton.
The main factor driving the increase in the price of silicon metal in the past month is the previous overhaul of power stations in Yunnan that has restricted the production of some silicon plants. In addition, the Xinjiang epidemic control has led to a prolonged transportation cycle, an increase in logistics costs, and a slowdown in spot circulation. Due to the timely supply of the silicon market spot, and affected by the epidemic factors, the opening and resumption dates of some large-scale silicon plants in Xinjiang have also been postponed again. The increase in market supply is lower than expected, which has also contributed to the continued upward rise of silicon prices. In addition, the high start of the downstream consumer market and the price recovery may bring momentum to the trend of silicon prices. However, after the rise of silicon prices, the market also has certain high quotations but difficult transactions. Therefore, the trend of silicon prices this week It has gradually returned to a stable state, and the development of supply and demand in the market outlook is still attracting attention.
