The price of potassium carbonate was stable this week. It can be seen from the data of SunSirs that the potassium carbonate market has risen slightly recently, and this week the market was volatile and consolidated. The supply of domestic potassium manufacturers was normal, and the market price of potassium chloride was higher. Border trade orders have not yet been fully determined, downstream procurement remained just in demand, market transactions were flat, and potassium carbonate market was volatile and consolidated. According to the statistics of SunSirs, the quotation range of domestic industrial grade potassium carbonate mainstream factory this week was about 9,100-9,300 RMB/ton (the quotation was for reference only), which varied according to the procurement situation.
Recently, the quotation of domestic mainstream potassium chloride manufacturers was stable: this week's price was 3,883.33 RMB/ton. At present, the sales price of 60% domestic potassium crystals is mostly 3,500 to 3,800 RMB/ton. The price of 57% powder in Qinghai small factories is 3,100-3,200 RMB/ton, and the price of 62% Russian white potassium in border trade areas is 3,550-3,600 RMB/ton.
