At present, for the first time in China, the energy saving and emission reduction of brown corundum has been included in the heavy and arduous task. First of all, in the abrasive abrasive market of silicon carbide, as a relatively special industry, silicon carbide manufacturers have a long-term energy-saving emission reduction problem. Coupled with the current situation of domestic white alumina, there is still an overcapacity phenomenon, so the focus of the next national policy will be to eliminate the backward production capacity of the white alumina micron powder industry and shut down some high-energy consumption small and medium white alumina producers. Glass sand should also eliminate low-power smelting furnaces to encourage superior enterprises to become stronger and larger. Sandblasted alumina also requires more mechanized operations in terms of increasing labor costs. With the continuous improvement of technology and continuous innovation of technology, the scope of application of corundum products has gradually expanded. In addition to traditional refractory, abrasive, ceramic and other industries, applications in beauty and chemical industries have gradually increased. Bauxite resources have been decreasing year by year, and limited production capacity has made the already strong corundum prices continue to rise to a high level. In addition to the ore factor, the energy issue is also critical. OPEC prices of international crude oil fell slightly on Tuesday, but Asian fuel oil prices rebounded on Wednesday. Now that the weather is getting warmer, people are travelling more and more, and hibernation in tourism and transportation has passed, and it may be difficult for oil prices to return for a period of time. The production and transportation costs of brown corundum companies are still increasing. This year is the first year since the new labor law was enacted. Coupled with the continuous rise in prices in the recent period of time, the employment costs of enterprises have increased the expenses of enterprises. The ever-decreasing profits of manufacturing companies also make it necessary for companies to break through by rising prices. In terms of exports, the continuous appreciation of the renminbi over the past two years has also brought considerable pressure on production enterprises. It is predicted that by the end of this year, the appreciation of the renminbi will reach about 6.9 yuan per dollar, and the export of brown corundum will gradually reduce corporate profits because of foreign exchange. The declining ore resources and the continuous increase in production and transportation costs make it reasonable for brown corundum prices to continue to rise.
