Stainless steel decorative pipe market gradually stabilized good policy began to exert force

From the recent trading situation of stainless steel decorative pipe market, although the market is general, the sales volume of distributors does not seem to increase significantly, but the seller's mentality is stable, many steel trading companies have stainless steel decorative pipe resources are generally inadequate, varieties and specifications are incomplete, shortage, stall, off-sale phenomenon is more obvious, resources are tight, sellers feel little pressure on sales, No. Want to sell at a low price, to a large extent curb the decline in prices.
In the analysis of the trend of domestic stainless steel decorative pipe market in the later period, most managers hold a cautious and peaceful attitude. Although the stainless steel decorative pipe market is still difficult to rebound strongly in the year, it will not decline significantly. Overall, the main theme of the stainless steel decorative pipe market is stability, and stability will be the main theme of the latter period. It is based on the following points:
First, with the recovery of domestic economy, the implementation of macro-adjustment policies and measures of "steady growth" will stimulate the demand for stainless steel decorative pipes and support stable prices. From the many information transmitted by the Eighteenth National Congress of the CPC and macroeconomic data in October, we can see that China's economy has steadily rebounded. In his report to the Eighteenth National Congress, Comrade Hu Jintao stressed that we must adhere to the strategic idea that development is the absolute principle and must not waver in the slightest. It also puts forward that we should adhere to the road of new industrialization, informationization, urbanization with Chinese characteristics and the rapid development of international agricultural modernization. The information conveyed by the 18th National Congress and accelerating the transformation of economic development will be a major event for the state to focus on. Development is the absolute principle. Later, the state may introduce a series of macro-adjustment policies for steady economic growth, which will stimulate the demand for steel products and also the demand for stainless steel decorative pipes.
From the macroeconomic operation data released by the National Bureau of Statistics recently, we can also see that the overall economic recovery of our country. Data released by the Bureau of Statistics show that total retail sales of consumer goods increased by 14.5% in October, up 0.3 percentage points from September; industrial added value increased by 9.6%, up 0.4 percentage points; fixed assets investment increased by 20.7% in January-October, a new high since April. There are obvious signs of stabilization in China's economy. The economic growth rate of Instant International this year can be maintained at more than 7.5%.  Recently, infrastructure construction projects around the country have been centralized, and the National Development and Reform Commission has approved four thermal and power expansion projects with a total investment of 10.37 billion yuan. "Railway, public and infrastructure" has been sounded again. In October, China's railway fixed assets investment completed 81.013 billion yuan, an increase of 141.2% over the same period last year, the highest growth rate since March 2009. Among them, the investment in railway infrastructure in that month was 69.776 billion yuan, which was 20.476 billion yuan compared with the same period last year, an increase of 240.8% over the same period last year, the highest level in recent years. Consumption and investment are improving, inflation pressure continues to decline, which provides a good basis for further easing, which is good for steel demand, including stainless steel decorative tubes.
Second, the support of rigid cost, Steel Factory stainless steel decorative pipe factory price increase, to curb the spot market price decline of stainless steel decorative pipe. Recently, the prices of iron ore, coke, scrap steel and some ferroalloys have continued to rise, and the cost of steel production has increased, especially those of nickel and other alloys closely related to the production cost of stainless steel decorative pipes. For example, the price of 1.6-1.8% ferronickel has gone up in the previous chaotic market. The price of 1.6-1.8% ferronickel is 2950-3050 yuan/ton, 50-100 yuan/ton, 4-6% ferronickel is 1200-1230 yuan/nickel, and 10-15% ferronickel. The price is 1170-1190 yuan per nickel. Coke prices continued to climb, rising by 50-100 yuan/ton and 200 yuan/ton in some areas. In October, coke stocks in domestic steel plants were on the low side. In order to replenish coke stocks, steel plants actively purchased coke, while coke stocks in coking plants were not large, and the ex-factory prices were raised one after another. With the convening of the 18th National Congress, coal safety supervision was strengthened, and most small and medium-sized coal mines began to stop production. Coal resources are scarce and coal prices are rising. With the increase in coal prices, coking plants are also planning to continue to raise coke ex-factory prices, and it is expected that domestic coke prices will continue to rise in November. The upstream raw material price of stainless steel decorative pipes has risen, and the production cost has remained high, thus increasing the ex-factory price one after another. Some steel mills have raised the ex-factory price of 304 series stainless steel decorative pipes by 200 yuan/ton. Steel mill stainless steel decorative pipe factory price increases, steel merchants purchasing costs increase accordingly, in the case of slight profit, the merchants can not sell at concessions, and "price awareness" increased, mainly to maintain stability. This will largely support the stability of stainless steel decorative pipe market prices.
Thirdly, the distributors have inadequate spot resources, and some kinds of stainless steel decorative pipes with specifications on the market are short of resources to curb the price decline. At present, some operators engaged in the stainless steel decorative pipe trade have a small stock of stainless steel decorative pipe, mainly digesting the stock in the early stage, stockpiling and "winter storage" are basically not available, some merchants are out of stock, even if there are only a few common specifications, sales pressure is not large. Businessmen put risk prevention in the first place and are very cautious in organizing resources. Therefore, at present, the stock of stainless steel decorative pipe market is not large, maintaining a low level. Some stainless steel decorative pipe varieties and specifications are seriously lacking, uneven, and some are even out of stock. This also lays the foundation for the price stability of stainless steel decorative pipe market in the later period.
Fourthly, near the end of recent years, steel mills have entered the overhaul period, the release of production capacity has been hindered, and market resources are limited in the latter period, which is conducive to alleviating the contradiction between supply and demand. Recently, a number of steel mills have carried out year-end maintenance of equipment, and in the last two months, steel mills ushered in the peak period of maintenance, steel production including stainless steel decorative pipes will be reduced, crude steel production has declined in October. According to the statistics of the National Bureau of Statistics, the average daily output of crude steel and steel in October was 190.63 million tons/day and 26.39 million tons/day, respectively, which decreased by 25.2 million tons/day and 42.2 million tons/day compared with September, with a decrease of 1.3% and 1.6% respectively. If between the end of the year, steel plant maintenance increases, production continues to decrease, supply and demand contradictions tend to ease, then the stainless steel decorative pipe market will also run smoothly in the later period.
The 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China just concluded successfully has passed on many positive effects such as stable macroeconomic growth, which has produced a supporting force for the stability of the entire domestic steel market, including stainless steel decorative pipes. Operators and insiders are cautiously optimistic about the latter stage of the stainless steel decorative pipe market. They expect the prices of 200 series and 400 series of stainless steel decorative pipes to run smoothly. Although the market price may fluctuate with the fluctuation of nickel price, the falling space is limited.
According to market research of some operators and insiders, the prices of various series of stainless steel decorative pipes in the domestic market have changed in the past October, showing a trend of differentiation. The prices of 400 series stainless steel decorative pipes have stabilized; the prices of 200 series stainless steel decorative pipes have slightly decreased; in contrast, the prices of 300 series stainless steel decorative pipes have declined relatively significantly.
After entering November, the stainless steel decorative pipe market gradually stabilized, and the price did not fluctuate too much. For example, the market price of 400 series stainless steel decorative pipe continued to stabilize. The price of 430 stainless steel cold coil in Foshan and Wuxi markets ranged from 9700 to 10000 yuan/ton. The price of 430 stainless steel cold coil in Shanghai, Hangzhou and Taiyuan regions ranged from 10100 to 10200 Yuan Yuan Yuan yuan/ton.
The market of 304 series stainless steel decorative pipes and 200 series stainless steel decorative pipes also tends to be stable. The price of 304 series stainless steel in Foshan market is stable. The price of 2.0mm-3.0mm stainless steel cold coil is 18600-18700 yuan/ton. For hot rolling, the price of 4.0mm, 8.0mm, 12.0mm stainless steel hot rolled plate is 16900 yuan/ton, 17100 yuan/ton. The price of 200 series stainless steel is also stable. The price of 1.0-3.0 mm 201/2B stainless steel coil is 11400 yuan/ton, 3.0 mm 201/NO.1 stainless steel coil is 10600 yuan/ton, 1.0-2.0 mm 202/2B stainless steel coil is 17100 yuan/ton, and 3.0 mm 202/NO.1 stainless steel coil is about 15500 yuan/ton.
