According to the “Barometer of Completion of Energy Consumption Dual Control Targets in Various Regions in the First Half of 2021” issued by the National Development and Reform Commission, it is learned that Qinghai, Ningxia, Guangxi, Guangdong, Fujian, Xinjiang, Yunnan, Shaanxi, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Anhui, Sichuan and other 12 regions Both the reduction in energy consumption and the total energy consumption are showing a severe situation, which means that more than half of the provinces failed to complete the "dual control" target in the first half of the year, and the intensity of production restrictions in the second half of the year will be even greater.
In previous years, the key areas were the "2+26" cities and in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region and surrounding areas, and the total number of cities this year exceeded 60! The key areas will focus on petrochemical, chemical, coal chemical, coking, steel, building materials, non-ferrous metals, coal power and other industries, comprehensively sort out the proposed, under construction, and inventory "two highs" projects, and implement a list of "two highs" projects Management, classified disposal and dynamic monitoring. Compared with previous years, the scope of production restriction has expanded this year! It seems that the staggered production arrangements for autumn and winter in multiple industries are already on the line!
Affected by the above reasons, China's optical brightener manufacturers have also been affected. The supply of main upstream raw materials is limited, and prices change every day, or even rise twice a day. Such changes directly affected the normal quotations and sales of downstream optical brightener manufacturers. Based on past experience, the supply of optical brighteners can not keep up with market demand, leading to price increases that will intensify after the northern heating season.
This policy has affected China's optical brightener price increases mainly in the following types, with the increase ranging from 10% to 33%.
