 Rare gas market

Today, the domestic rare gas market is performing fairly well. Although the upstream supply is still tight, some shipholders have begun to ship in a narrow quantity; The demand for downstream semiconductors and export orders is good, supporting the domestic rare gas market, and the prices of related products continue to rise. Xenon, with good market performance, is in short supply. The major steel plants and air separation plants are generally in operation, and the output of high-purity xenon gas is not large. Except for the direct supply of terminal customers, the actual output is limited, but the downstream market demand is good, and the actual transaction price continues to rise; The amount of goods held by the holders is limited, and they often seek terminal transactions, and the actual transaction price is high. Krypton gas can be supplied from upstream. Compared with the previous period, the shipment volume of manufacturers has gradually increased. However, under the current supply and demand environment, the market demand for krypton gas is still considerable. The manufacturers have no worries about the shipment, and the actual transaction price has an obvious upward trend. The tight supply of helium gas is still continuing. The actual operation of upstream manufacturers is general. The production of domestic helium gas is insufficient, far from meeting the growing demand of the downstream market, and the contradiction between supply and demand is gradually intensifying; Compared with the previous period, the import of helium has not increased significantly, and the import of products is limited in many regions under the influence of public health events; The domestic and foreign enterprises have a small quantity of helium, and basically no surplus to export. The supply of helium is obviously insufficient. The prices of helium in tube bundles and bottled helium continue to rise.

 Industrial gas market analysis

Today, the domestic industrial gas market has performed well. With the gradual increase in demand in the downstream market, many industrial gas markets continue to rise steadily. Among them, the liquid argon market in the northern region rose strongly and the price generally rose. The operating rate of air separation units in North China is low, and the supply of liquid argon is insufficient. With the steady increase of downstream demand, the supply of goods in the market is in short supply, and the intention of manufacturers to increase prices is obvious, and the transaction center continues to rise; The demand in Northeast and Northwest China is stable, and the price is steadily rising under the influence of surrounding markets; The downstream market demand in East China and South China has gradually improved, the market support has been continuously strengthened, and the regional liquid argon price has continued to rise. The overall volume of liquid argon in the southwest region is small, and the surrounding sources of goods continue to pour in, and the actual transaction price in the downstream market continues to rise. The atmosphere in central China has improved, the downstream procurement has increased, and the liquid argon trading is good. The atmosphere of the liquid oxygen and liquid nitrogen market is good. The operating rate of the downstream steel and other industries in the northern region has increased. The purchase of liquid oxygen and liquid nitrogen has improved. The market participants have a good attitude, and the transaction prices of liquid oxygen and liquid nitrogen have increased. According to the analysis of [Special Gas Network], with the gradual increase of demand in many downstream industries, the demand for industrial gas products in the future may continue to increase, and the price of industrial gas products may continue to rise.
