Glass bottle raw materials: recent overview of soda ash industry

Di Tongli, President of China Soda Ash Industry Association, introduced the production and market supply of soda ash industry in 2007 and 2008

1. In 2007, China produced 1720 tons of soda ash, an increase of 1.9 million tons over 2006, an increase of 12.4%, which is the highest annual increase in production in history. In 2007, a total of 1.7 million tons of soda ash were exported, 110000 tons less than that in 2006; The imported soda ash is 40000 tons, 100000 tons less than that in 2006. In 2007, the domestic consumption of soda ash was 15.54 million tons, an increase of 1.91 million tons over 2006, an increase of 14.01%

2. The market price of soda ash rose month by month in 2007, with an increase of about yuan in the first half of the year Tons/month, up to yuan in the third quarter Tons/month, the fourth quarter showed an accelerated upward trend, reaching yuan Tons/month or more. The annual market price of soda ash is 1550-1650 yuan/ton on average, and the price of light soda at the end of the year is yuan/ton if there are problems with these relevant accessories; The price of heavy alkali is 2100-2300 yuan/ton, about 25% higher than that in 2006

3. In 2007, the output of downstream industries, especially large alkali consuming industries such as flat glass and daily-use glass (the alkali consumption of the above two industries is about half of the national output of soda ash), increased significantly, and the supply of soda ash in domestic and foreign markets was in short supply

4. The main reasons for driving the rising market price of soda ash are as follows: first, there is strong market demand at home and abroad, and the production of downstream industries increases rapidly; Second, the price of energy and raw materials continued to rise, and the production cost of soda ash also increased, resulting in the rising price of soda ash throughout the year. But generally speaking, before the third quarter, especially in the first half of the year, the price was relatively stable, and after the fourth quarter, the price rose sharply

5. In 2008, the national output of soda ash is expected to be 1996 million tons, an increase of 2.76 million tons over 2007, and the domestic input is 18.31 million tons, an increase of 18.72%

6. The southern snow disaster has little impact on soda ash production and market. The provinces affected by the soda ash plant include Hubei, Hunan and Jiangsu. The hardest hit is Hunan Province, where all three soda plants were shut down from late January to early February, affecting the output of about 30000 tons; Before the Spring Festival, three soda plants in Hubei were in a hurry due to the transportation of raw coal, and the product inventory increased, but the production was not affected; The production load of five soda plants in Jiangsu Province has been reduced due to the impact of coal and film, affecting the output of about 60000 tons. Gb/t 1040 ⑴ 992 "test methods for tensile properties of plastics". At present, soda ash enterprises affected by the snow disaster have gradually returned to normal. Let's talk about the tensile strength production of materials

7. The market price of soda ash will remain high in 2008. As energy, raw materials and transportation are still operating at high prices or continue to raise prices, PPI prices are still rising year-on-year, and the pressure on soda production costs will not be eased or even further increased. At the same time, in the face of strong market demand at home and abroad 3 For the preparation technology of rare and rare earth metal refined products, the overall production and sales of soda ash in 2008 were basically balanced, but the market supply was tight. The price of soda ash in the month is relatively low. The soda ash plant enters the annual centralized overhaul period, and the inventory of soda ash is gradually reduced. After October, new units are put into operation one after another, and the market launch of soda ash will increase, but the demand will also increase accordingly. To sum up, the average price of soda ash in 2008 is expected to be about yuan/ton, and market fluctuations are inevitable, but we strive to avoid sharp rises and falls in prices
