# Market situation of Nodularizer Cored Wire Remains Stable, Demand for Silicon Calcium Cored Wire Is Stable

**Industry Trends**

[Expressed by www.ferro-alloys.cn]

It is learned that, the recent price of nodularizer cored wire is stable. In Inner Mongolia, the price of rare earth magnesium silicon, the raw material, remains at 7,000-7,500 yuan per ton and ferrosilicon fluctuated slightly, which has no impact on nodularizer cored wire. There is still large difference in prices between the southern and the northern market. The market transaction statistics shows that, in Henan, Liaoning and Shandong, the mainstream transaction price of nodularizer cored wire remains at 10,000 – 10,500 yuan per ton, while in Jiangsu and Zhejiang, it is 10,800-11,000 yuan per ton.

The recent situation of silicon calcium cored wire is stable. In the south, the manufacturers are normal in order receiving and delivery. Calcium silicon alloy, the raw material, operates weakly and stably and the downstream manufacturer stock up silicon calcium cored wire normally. In northern Henan, as the haze has not dispersed completely yet, many manufacturers have not recovered production, there is little inventory. Now, the mainstream transaction price of silicon calcium cored wire Ca30Si58∮13mm is 10,500-11,000 yuan per ton, Ca28Si50∮13mm is 7,850-8,500 yuan per ton, Ca28Si55∮13mm is 9,700-10,000 yuan per ton and Ca30Si60∮13mm is 10,500-11,000 yuan per ton.

There is no obvious price fluctuation in other cored wire products yet. Now, the mainstream transaction price of solid pure calcium cored wire Ca98%min∮9mm is 9,700 - 10,200 yuan per ton; silicon magnesium cored wire Si40Mg28Re2∮13mm is 11,500-12,500 yuan per ton; ferro calcium cored wire Ca30∮13mm is 8,600-8,800 yuan per ton and Ca30∮30mm is 10,000-10,500 yuan per ton; ferrotitanium cored wire Ti30%min∮13mm is 11,500 - 11,800 yuan per ton; sulphur cored wire S98%∮13mm is 6,500-6,800 yuan per ton; ferroboron cored wire B17%∮13mm is 18,500-19,000 yuan per ton; ferrotitanium cored wire FeTi30%min∮13mm is 11,500 - 11,800 yuan per ton and FeTi70%min∮13mm is 25,000-25,800 yuan per ton; seamless metal calcium cored wire Ca98%min∮9mm is 98,000 - 10,800 yuan per ton and Ca98%min∮10mm is 14,800 - 15,500 yuan per ton; carbon cored wire C96%∮13mm is 5,900-6,200 yuan per ton, C97%∮13mm is 5,800-6,100 yuan per ton and C98%∮13mm is 5,800-6,100 yuan per ton.

In terms of raw materials, Ferroboron FeB19C0.1 is 20,000-22,000 yuan per ton, FeB18C0.5 is 18,000-18,200 yuan per ton, FeB17C0.5 is 17,500-17,800 yuan per ton and FeB16C0.5 is 17,000-17,200 yuan per ton; silicocalcium Ca28Si50 is 9,300-9,500 yuan per ton, Ca28Si55 is 10,000-10,500 yuan per ton, Ca28Si60 is 10,600-10,800 yuan per ton, Ca30Si55 is 10,500-10,700 yuan per ton, Ca30Si56 is 10,000-10,200 yuan per ton, Ca30Si60 is 10,800-11,500 yuan per ton; FeTi30 is 9,300 yuan per ton; cold rolled strip steel Q195 0.35*55 is 4,460-4,480 yuan per ton, Q195 0.4 *55 and Q195 0.45 *55 is 4,420-4,450 yuan per ton, SPCC0.35-0.39*55 is 4,520-4,550 yuan per ton, SPCC 0.4 *55 and SPCC 0.45 *55 is 4,460-4,480 yuan per ton; metal calcium wire (Ca≥97%, Φ: 7-7.5mm) is 18,000-19,000 yuan per ton and metal calcium particle (Ca≥98.5%, Φ: 0-2.5mm) is 19,500-21,000 yuan per ton; metal crude calcium (Ca≥98.5%, particle size: 0-2.5mm) is 18,500-21,000 yuan per ton.

The export transaction price of calcium silicon cored wire ca30si60∮13mm is 1,550 to 1,630 US dollars per ton. Calcium silicon cored wire ca28si55∮13mm is 1,530 to 1,600 US dollars per ton. Bite type solid core pure calcium core wire ca98%min∮9mm is 1,670 to 1,750 US dollars per ton. Pure calcium cored wire Ca30 ∮13mm is 1,350 to 1,400 US dollars per ton. There is no adjustment comparing with the last month (FOB price, Tianjin Port).

Recently, impacted by weather factor, operation rate of numerous cored wire manufacturers is low. Because the steel enterprises are about to stock up at the end of the year, the demand for cored wire is increasing. It is estimated that a short-term short supply will occur in the later market and the prices might rise slightly.
