The price of melt blown cloth began to rebound
On April 8, the sales manager of a fiber material technology Co., Ltd. in Shenzhen told Saibai blue instrument, "now the price of non-woven fabric is 45000 / T, and the price of melt blown fabric is 500000 / T. the previous price did fall with the resumption of work, but now the situation is different, the price rebounds, and the order has been arranged to the beginning of May.".
During the epidemic period, the price of melt blown cloth increased from 20000 tons to 600000 tons. On March 27, Xinhua News Agency reported that many domestic enterprises changed production and increased production, and the production of melt blown cloth increased rapidly. According to the report of Beijing News, the price of melt blown cloth has gradually dropped to about 150000 tons.
Beijing News reporter from a number of industry sources learned that the price of melt blown cloth has fallen.
But is it a general situation in the industry, or is it just a matter of a certain region?
For this purpose, sabilan equipment has called 11 provinces including Shandong, Tianjin, Hebei, Henan, Jilin, Sichuan, Jiangxi, Guangdong, Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Fujian to learn about the price from 21 manufacturers of melt blown cloth.
Statistics show that the highest price is 500000 / T, the lowest price is 430000 / T, and the average price is 470000 / T.
Some manufacturers said that their goods were imported from Belarus and made of Sinopec 99 grade 25g material. They need to pay a deposit of 10000 yuan for picking up the goods, starting from 10 tons, and a deposit of 100000 yuan for delivery at the end of the month.
According to the author's observation: of the 21 suppliers, 17 have proposed to pay a deposit, only 4 said that there is a spot ready to be raised.
Hoarding is the main reason for the rise
The price of melt blown cloth has gone up. Is polypropylene, the main raw material for making melt blown cloth, also rising?
To this end, saberan equipment called a polymer material Co., Ltd. in Shandong Province. The sales staff of the company said that the price of polypropylene is 21000 / t now, but the order is full, so the reservation is not accepted for the time being.
Similarly, an enterprise producing polypropylene in Nantong, Jiangsu Province, revealed that the raw materials of melt blown cloth are still around 20000 yuan, and the price is floating every day. It's probably the same price in mid February, which hasn't changed much. The price rise is mainly caused by speculation. Many people who are not in this industry are hoarding goods and participating in market transactions.
Sales personnel of Guangdong tangmiao Equipment Co., Ltd. pointed out that the price of ordinary particles in the melt blown cloth remained unchanged, and the raw materials of N95 were about 6000 yuan more expensive than before.
It can be seen that after the resumption of work, the price of melt blown cloth did fall, but the market environment is quite different.
On April 5, according to CCTV, law enforcement officials investigated Rao's purchase of 180000 yuan, which was only used as a middleman to earn the difference. The final price was raised to 451 million tons, and the price increased 20 times.
Another big incentive is the surge in export orders
At present, the market is still in short supply. The excessive construction of mask factories is also a direct factor in the price rise of raw materials.
According to the survey data of enterprises, there are more than 5000 mask manufacturers in China. Since the outbreak of the epidemic, many enterprises have turned to produce masks, which makes it difficult to buy materials.
Tang Kexin, deputy director of the legal supervision department of the price supervision and Competition Bureau of the State Administration of market supervision, said in an interview with CCTV that the illegal elements bid up the price, resulting in the disorder of the market price signal and causing great panic to downstream manufacturers, who have to buy the melt blown cloth.
In addition, the spread of the international epidemic also gives middlemen a reason to increase prices.
A well-known medical equipment supply chain manager in Beijing told sapphire blue that the current international epidemic has strained the relationship between supply and demand, and the export has become an important part of the business, which is also the main reason for the rising price of melt blown cloth. The supply of foreign markets is in short supply.
On April 5, the official wechat of the General Administration of Customs said that the U.S. FDA issued a document on its website saying that the masks made in China without NIOSH certification have been authorized by the EUA.
This marks that the kn95 mask produced in accordance with Chinese standards has been officially recognized by the United States.
At present, the European Union, the United States and many other regions have accepted the import of Chinese materials, and temporarily exempt from tariffs. At present, the profit of domestic market is smaller, but the gap in international market is still large.
