The rise of cement price has many factors such as low price for a long time, capacity reduction, environmental protection, etc., so the market should not worry too much about the regulation at the policy level. Chen Bolin, a senior cement expert and CEO of digital cement network, told the Shanghai stock exchange that in order to grasp the market situation in time, the relevant departments of the national development and Reform Commission have normalized the research on the raw material market, and the market does not need too much Association.
From the perspective of each region, this year, the cement prices in most provinces have increased year on year. The regions with higher growth rates are mainly located in central and southern China, such as Guangxi (17.53%), Guangdong (12.94%), Henan (12.69%), etc., while the growth rates in most provinces are below 10%. The prices in 12 provinces, mainly in Northeast and southwest regions, have not reached the level of the same period last year.
Of course, in some regions, such as Henan, the cement price and growth rate are much higher than expected due to environmental protection verification, and the cumulative increase in just one month is more than 100 yuan / ton. Henan has become the only region with a price of more than 600 yuan per ton except Tibet. In addition, cement prices in 11 provinces exceed 500 yuan per ton, such as Zhejiang, Jiangxi, Shandong, Hubei, etc.
Compared with cement, the price of glass seems to have increased even more. According to the national development and Reform Commission, in October, the average price of high-grade bulk cement in the national market was 459 yuan / ton, 2.5% higher than last month and 1.8% higher than last year; the average ex factory price of flat glass was 78.1 yuan / weight box, 2% higher than last month and 3.4% higher than last year.
