Since December, domestic cored wire market has been calm and relatively stable in overall operation except that the prices of cold rolled strip steel, the raw material of cored wire, have rebounded. There is no obvious adjustment in mainstream transaction prices of solid pure calcium cored wire, seamless metal calcium cored wire or ferro-calcium cored wire in the main production areas such as Jiangsu, Shandong and Zhejiang. The market price of calcium silicon, the raw material of calcium silicon cored wire, is stable. There is little space to increase demand of end steel market. Accordingly, the order quantity of calcium silicon cored wire producers is difficult to increase greatly for a while.
At present, there is no large change in mainstream transaction prices in domestic cored wire market yet. Calcium silicon cored wire (Ca28Si55) is 10,800 to 11,800 yuan per ton. Calcium silicon cored wire (Ca30Si58) is 12,000 to 12,500 yuan per ton. Pure calcium wire (Ca98%min∮9mm) is 9,600 to 10,0000 yuan per ton. Ferro-calcium wire (Ca30∮13mm) is 8,300 to 8,800 yuan per ton. Ferro-calcium wire (Ca30∮30mm) is 10,000 to 10,500 yuan per ton. Carbon wire (C98%∮13mm) is 6,200 to 6,600 yuan per ton. Seamless metal calcium wire (Ca98%min∮9mm) is 12,000 to 12,500 yuan per ton. Seamless metal calcium wire (Ca98%min∮10mm) is 17,000 to 17,500 yuan per ton. Silicon magnesium wire(Si40Mg28Re2∮13mm) is 11,500 to 12,500 yuan per ton. Nodulizer cored wire is 11,700 to 12,000 yuan per ton.
The cold rolled steel strip SPCC0.35 *55 Q195 is 4,440 yuan per ton, SPCC0.35-0.39*55 is 4,470 yuan per ton and SPCC0.4-0.49*55 is 4,420 yuan per ton. It is estimated that cored wire market will be stable recently with no large price fluctuation.
