 Silicone soared more than 80percent in a month! Some downstream companies complain and others applaud


What is the situation?

Production enterprises are in short supply

We do have zero inventory now and can only protect core customers. Because the price changes relatively big, also can only a single sign, and want to control the amount of sign A few days ago, the person in charge of a listed company producing silicone monomer told reporters that the demand for silicone monomer has increased significantly since September due to the increase of overseas orders and the warming of upstream and downstream buildings and textiles.

It is understood that the production of silicone monomer listed companies, at present most of the enterprises do not report, the actual single negotiation.

Xingfa group silicone monomer 360000 tons / year, currently three sets of operation, the average load is about 80%, DMC temporarily closed on the 26th, the actual single negotiation.

Dongyue silicon material 300000 tons / year silicone monomer, two sets of devices, one is opened, the other is shut down for maintenance since 24 days, DMC is mainly used for its own use, and no order is received temporarily.

Sanyou Chemical Co., Ltd. has a capacity of 200000 tons / year. The two sets of units are in normal operation. DMC will not make a report. The main task is to receive orders in the early stage of production scheduling.

According to industry insiders, silicone is a capital intensive industry, with a production expansion cycle of about 2-3 years, so it is difficult to build a large number of new production capacity in the short term. Domestic production capacity of 1.1 million tons is expected to be put into operation in 2021, but it is mainly concentrated in the second half of 2021. Only 400000 tons of production capacity of Hesheng silicon will be put into operation in the first half of 2021. This means that there is no room for expansion on the supply side in the short term, and prices are still strong in the near future.

It is difficult for some downstream enterprises to take delivery of goods

In the interview, the reporter found that not only small enterprises, but also large enterprises in the industry also faced the problem of raw material procurement.

Jitai said in the price adjustment notice issued on the 25th that the price of silicone raw materials continues to rise sharply, and the shortage of supply leads to the continuous rise of product prices. The reporter learned from the company that it is more difficult to purchase raw materials than before, but it can still meet the needs of daily orders and production.

26, another production of sealant related to the listed company told reporters, previously the company generally has 1 to 2 months of raw material inventory, but now only 1 month or less than 1 month.

Price transmission capacity is different,

Raw materials rise sharply, how do downstream enterprises react? Industry insiders say that different scale enterprises have different price transmission capacity because of different customer groups. Some small enterprises have stopped production because of difficulties in getting goods and high production costs. The sealant industry is facing a reshuffle in this round of raw material price increase, and the industry concentration will be further improved.

It is understood that silicone monomer accounts for a high proportion in the sealant. According to the variety of sealant, the proportion of sealant in the product cost is 30% - 40% or 60% - 70%.

Recently, the reporter interviewed a few small sealant production enterprises, the enterprise leaders have said that the cost is too high, the enterprise has or is ready to stop production. We cant afford to play. Not only is it difficult to get the goods, but the price is too high. The person in charge of a small sealant production enterprise in North China said that the advantage of the products in the past was low price. If the price was increased, the product would lose its competitive advantage. Moreover, the customer group was not the same as the large-scale sealant enterprise. It was not a large-scale real estate developer, and the customers were very sensitive to the price increase.

Price increases seem to be good for leading companies.

Sibao technology said that the upstream price increase should be dialectically considered. The company and its major customers signed open-ended contracts at the beginning of the year. That is, if raw materials rise, the companys products will also be adjusted accordingly. The companys current scheduling is also very tight, has been in mid December, the current product supply is in short supply. In the short run, because of the lag of product price rise and the rise of raw material price, a certain product profit will be squeezed, but in the long run, the industry concentration will increase. Now raw material manufacturers protect their core customers. It is relatively difficult for small enterprises to get raw materials now, and they are more sensitive to the rise of raw materials. If this situation continues for a period of time, the industry concentration is expected to further improve. Silicon treasure technology related person in charge told reporters.

Sibao technology is a leading enterprise in the field of organic silica gel. The field of construction glue has successfully entered the brand Library of Hengda, Biguiyuan, Greenland, Longhu, China Resources and other real estate groups. At the same time, the company expands products in the fields of photovoltaic, new energy vehicles, electronic and electrical.

The companys silicone sealant production capacity of 65000 tons, products are widely used in construction engineering, home decoration, container manufacturing, steel structure manufacturing and other fields. The products are positioned in the middle and high-end market. Among the top 100 real estate enterprises in China, more than 90 large-scale real estate enterprises have entered the brand library.

The relevant person in charge of the company recently told reporters that the prices of raw materials were relatively stable before September this year, even lower than last year. After September this year, the price of silicone raw materials has nearly doubled from the lowest point this year. The company has adjusted the price to digest the impact of rising raw materials. At present, the company has sufficient orders and is in the state of full load production.

On the 26th, Huitian new material related person in charge told reporters that the company has been through reasonable price increases to the downstream transmission of raw material prices. Previously, the company also said on the investor interaction platform that the price fluctuation of raw materials has a certain impact on the cost control of the company. At present, the company has sufficient inventory. At the same time, it will actively take measures to transmit to the downstream in a reasonable and orderly manner, digest the price rise factors and reduce the relevant impact.
