Supply: According to incomplete statistics from Baichuan Yingfu, the output of sodium sulfate this week is about 142,500 tons. The market supply is slightly lower than last week.

Overall, the market operation is still around 40-50%. , the supply of goods from major manufacturers is still at a high level, the market has excess production capacity, and there is no lack of by-product companies gradually releasing new device production capacity. At present, the supply of by-products has gradually moved closer to minerals. At present, the lithium carbonate and viscose chemical fiber industries dominate the by-product industry. At this stage, most viscose chemical fiber manufacturers have stable operations, and the on-site supply has not changed much. The amount of by-product sodium sulfate is also relatively stable. In terms of lithium carbonate, some manufacturers in Jiangxi have resumed production. At the same time, as the temperature in the Salt Lake area warms up, output is also expected to gradually increase. It is expected that the amount of sodium sulfate as a by-product will also increase in the later period.

In terms of demand: The market demand for sodium sulfate is gradually improving, but due to regional influences, the performance varies from place to place. Due to limited supply in Sichuan, the overall market transaction atmosphere is acceptable, and a balance between production and sales can basically be achieved. Due to the concentration of washing, printing and dyeing factories in Shandong and Jiangxi, many companies have signed long-term supply agreements, driving the consumption of local supply. Orders from companies in Jiangsu are basically from overseas. At present, overseas demand is strong, many companies have signed a large number of orders, companies are actively delivering, and market inventory is gradually being consumed. In terms of downstream compound fertilizers, the spring fertilizer market has basically ended, seasonal demand has become sluggish, and the pre-harvest of summer fertilizers is progressing slowly and has a tendency to be delayed. The demand for sodium sulfate may slow down in the short term, while the start-up of other downstream industries is acceptable. Demand for sodium sulfate will still be supported in the short term.
