It is learned that, the cored wire market in this month is still sluggish on the whole. In northern China, environmental inspection has been intensified, limited production has been implemented in the downstream steel mills and operation rate has reduced. For this reason, demand for various cored wires has reduced and is difficult to increase. Order quantity has decreased accordingly. The market operation is not so active. Delivery of some manufacturers is not as good as before. Inquiry from new customers is less. Downstream purchase for silicon calcium cored wire is still dominated by orders from regular steel mills and there are few inquiries from new customers; downstream demand for seamless metal calcium cored wire has reduced too and order quantity of most of manufacturers has decreased generally; market situation of carbon cored wire is not so good too with poor downstream demand on the whole, the manufacturers are not so positive in delivery; demand for nodularizer cored wire continues to decrease after temporary improvement lately and the order quantity has decreased; solid pure calcium cored wire is relatively stable in demand and delivery, which most of orders are from regular customers. Transaction rhythm has slowed down slightly and the market is smooth on the whole; the price of ferrotitanium is stable recently with no obvious adjustment in the manufacturers’ offers. The downstream demand is dominated by low-ferrotitanium cored wire. The price of ferrotitanium, the raw material, operates stably.

 

In terms of price, except slight price fall of silicon calcium cored wire and seamless metal calcium cored wire, the prices of cored wire products are still stable. The market transaction statistics shows that, now, in the main production areas such as Henan and Jiangsu, the mainstream transaction price of silicon calcium cored wire Ca30Si58∮13mm is 10,500-11,000 yuan per ton, Ca28Si50∮13mm is 7,850-8,500 yuan per ton, Ca28Si55∮13mm is 9,700-10,000 yuan per ton and Ca30Si60∮13mm is 10,500-11,000 yuan per ton; solid pure calcium cored wire Ca98%min∮9mm is 10,000 - 10,500 yuan per ton; silicon magnesium cored wire Si40Mg28Re2∮13mm is 11,500-12,500 yuan per ton; ferro calcium cored wire Ca30∮13mm is 8,600-8,800 yuan per ton and Ca30∮30mm is 10,000-10,500 yuan per ton; ferrotitanium cored wire Ti30%min∮13mm is 11,500 - 11,800 yuan per ton; sulphur cored wire S98%∮13mm is 6,500-6,800 yuan per ton; ferroboron cored wire B17%∮13mm is 18,500-19,000 yuan per ton; seamless metal calcium cored wire Ca98%min∮9mm is 10,000-11,000 yuan per ton and Ca98%min∮10mm is 15,000-16,000 yuan per ton; carbon cored wire C96%∮13mm is 5,900-6,200 yuan per ton, C97%∮13mm is 5,800-6,100 yuan per ton and C98%∮13mm is 5,800-6,100 yuan per ton; nodularizer cored wire still remains at 10,500-10,800 yuan per ton.

 

In terms of raw materials, the price of cold rolled strip steel, the raw material of cored wire rose continuously recently after being stable for nearly one month by 130 to 150 yuan per ton or so. Now, the mainstream transaction price of Q195 0.35*55 rose from 4,400-4,420 yuan per ton to 4,530-4,550 yuan per ton, Q195 0.4 *55 and Q195 0.45 *55 rose from 4,350-4,370 yuan per ton to 4,480-4,500 yuan per ton, SPCC0.35-0.39*55 rose from 4,450-4,470 yuan per ton to 4,580-4,600 yuan per ton, SPCC 0.4 *55 and SPCC 0.45 *55 rose from 4,400-4,420 yuan per ton to 4,530-4,550 yuan per ton. It is estimated that it will also fluctuate soon after. There is no obvious price fluctuation in other raw materials. Now, Ferroboron FeB19C0.1 is 20,000-22,000 yuan per ton, FeB18C0.5 is 18,000-18,200 yuan per ton, FeB17C0.5 is 17,500-17,800 yuan per ton and FeB16C0.5 is 16,500-17,000 yuan per ton; silicocalcium Ca28Si50 is 9,300-9,500 yuan per ton, Ca28Si55 is 10,000-10,500 yuan per ton, Ca28Si60 is 10,600-10,800 yuan per ton, Ca30Si55 is 10,500-10,700 yuan per ton, Ca30Si56 is 10,000-10,200 yuan per ton, Ca30Si60 is 10,800-11,500 yuan per ton; rare earth magnesium silicon is 7,000-7,500 yuan per ton; ferrotitanium FeTi30 is 9,300 yuan per ton; metal calcium wire (Ca≥97%, Φ: 7-7.5mm) is 18,000-22,000 yuan per ton; metal calcium particle (Ca≥98.5%, Φ: 0-2.5mm) is 21,000 -23,000 yuan per ton, metal crude calcium (Ca≥98.5%, particle size: 0-2.5mm) is 18,500-21,000 yuan per ton.

 

The export transaction price of calcium silicon cored wire ca30si60∮13mm is 1,550 to 1,630 US dollars per ton. Calcium silicon cored wire ca28si55∮13mm is 1,530 to 1,600 US dollars per ton. Bite type solid core pure calcium core wire ca98%min∮9mm is 1,670 to 1,750 US dollars per ton. Pure calcium cored wire Ca30 ∮13mm is 1,350 to 1,400 US dollars per ton. There is no adjustment comparing with the last month (FOB price, Tianjin Port).

 

Because the market demand of cored wire continues to be sluggish and the price of cold rolled strip steel rebounds strongly recently, the profit margin of the cored wire manufacturers has further reduced and the later market is not prospective.
