It is crazy to say that the price increase of any refrigeration product this year is non-refrigerant.
According to the reporters of the refrigeration market, after entering April, the price increase of refrigerants was insane, with R125 being the most, with an increase of 3-4 million yuan/ton during the month. The market has not been aggravated, starting in the middle of the month, the refrigerant R125, R32 stocks are in a hurry, there is no market price, more than 80% of the refrigerant manufacturers have no goods to suspend the offer.
As of the end of April, the factory price of used water for HCFC-22 refrigerant was 1.70-1.75 million yuan/ton, and the monthly increase was 2500-2700 yuan/ton;
HFC-134a mainstream bulk water ex-factory price is 3.0-3.2 million yuan / ton, the demand for heat pump in the month is hot, constantly pulling the price up;
HFC-125 suspended the offer at the end of the month, mainly due to the market's incompetent increase in the market, the manufacturers mostly self-use, occasionally manufacturers offer 6-85,000 yuan / ton, a small amount of transactions;
The ex-factory price of HFC-32 mainstream bulk water rose from 2.2-2.3 million yuan/ton at the beginning of the month to 3.0-3.1 million yuan/ton, and the monthly increase was 42%;
The ex-factory price of HFC-410A mainstream water is between 5,000 and 60,000 yuan/ton, the biggest increase during the month, and the market supply is very tight.
According to the feedback from the traders, the delivery of the refrigerant factory in Zhejiang is very unsmooth. With the cash, you can't pick up the goods immediately. The cars that need to pull the goods are waiting in line, sometimes waiting for several days to mention the goods. What is the reason for rising prices, rising prices, and rising refrigerant prices?
According to the refrigeration business reporter, this year, there are more manufacturers of periodic maintenance of anhydrous acid production plants, safety and environmental protection inspectors are frequent, and the production of uncertainties is unpredictable. The rainy season is coming, and the supply of AHF as a refrigerant raw material is in short supply; The demand for sales in short supply has widened, and the price has skyrocketed, and the negative load has increased substantially. Therefore, the amount of acid used has increased substantially, and the supply of AHF is still extremely lacking.
The prices of AHF in various regions on April 25 were as follows: Jinan District, 11,600 yuan / ton; Hangzhou, 11,700 / ton; Sunan, 11,800 yuan / ton; Northern Jiangsu, 12,000 yuan / ton. The tight supply of hydrofluoric acid has severely affected refrigerant production and will be relatively long-term.
The main reason is that the current HFC refrigerant hydrofluoric acid is 1.6 times more than HCFC, and the HFO refrigerant is 1.5 times more than the HFC refrigerant. The same amount of environmentally friendly refrigerants use a large amount of hydrofluoric acid. In addition, environmental protection is becoming more and more strict. It is difficult to re-plant after an accident. Hydrofluoric acid is all over the place, and the price will exceed 20,000. Refrigerant has been soaring due to factors such as the difficulty in supplying hydrofluoric acid!
All in all, in May, the supply of refrigerants is still tight, some products will still be out of stock, and the benefits brought by the lack of goods will support prices to continue to rise.
