China Refractory Raw Materials in Mar. 2019
In March, on one hand, supply shortage continues for several refractory raw materials; on the other hand, price decline keeps going forward for some types of minerals.
There is no significant improvements of calcined bauxite both in price and in supply.
Brown fused alumina and white fused alumina saw slow growth of capacity usage, while supply improvement still needs time.
Magnesia kept slight downwards in price due to the weak demand status, however, with a new round of environmental protection inspection, foreboding the new uncertainty.
Industrial alumina continues dropping down in price, but failed to pull down offers of alumina-based refractory raw materials.
Silicon carbide still keeps soaring price by production restriction.
