What factors affect the price of reduced lead
Editor: Xinyuan smelting equipment lead reduction time: 2020 / 12 / 07
The reduced lead is obtained from the waste lead as raw material and recycled again. The content of Pb is usually about 96% - 98%. It can also be used as the raw material for the production of electrolytic lead. It is understood that the price of reduced lead has been increasing and decreasing in recent years, and the trend is unstable and the range is relatively large. What are the main factors affecting the price fluctuation of reduced lead?
According to the current international situation, it can be seen that the rational utilization of renewable resources has become the mainstream of world economic development. In developed countries, the consumption of renewable lead is far higher than that of primary lead, and the demand is relatively strong; in developing countries, especially in Southeast Asia, due to the need to reduce costs and to consider the utilization of renewable resources and environmental protection, they are optimistic about China Recycled lead. In the first half of this year, global lead consumption increased by 3.3% to 3.1 million tons, while the growth rate of mineral lead production was 1.7%. According to statistics, lead consumption in South Korea increased by 10%, Malaysia by 35%, and the Philippines by 31%. The exception is Japan, whose lead consumption fell by 2% because its economic situation has not improved. The increase of export tax rebate rate has promoted the export of reduced lead, resulting in the shortage of domestic resources and the rising price. The warming of international market and the expansion of domestic demand have promoted the consumption of reduced lead. It can be seen that the price change of reduced lead is mainly affected by policy and technology.
According to the forecast, due to the stable price trend of the international refined lead market, the domestic reduced lead price will have little room to rise after reaching the current level.
