The primary factor keeping these prices within limited boundaries was the dull demand; since the market demands tottered at the lower end, the prices didn’t have much room to grow. Even though the feedstock aluminium oxide prices inched up during the later part of the final quarter, the feverish demands from the downstream steel and welding industries kept the cryolite prices in check.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, given the current inventory situation, the cryolite price trend is likely to exude borderline stagnancy in the coming quarter as well. The difference of the supply and demand outlooks is likely to remain steady going forward as well.

Cryolite Price Trend for the First Half of 2023

Cryolite experienced mixed market sentiment in the discussed time frame. The market had a firm start at the beginning of Q1 as the downstream demands from the glass, metal, and other manufacturing sectors were high amidst moderate inventory presence. Hence, the prices showcased a firm rise in the first month; however, they stabilized going on to the second, as in February, a stable market dynamic was observed with little to no fluctuation in prices.

It was by the end of the first quarter that a decline in price trends for Cryolite was witnessed, as the downstream demands were driving the market trends. The demands didn’t grow beyond a point, but supplies kept pouring in, pushing the market into a downward-inclined position.

These trends continued in the second quarter, and the market went into a wait-and-see situation. It was by the end of Q2 in June’23 that some correction was observed in the Cryolite market owing to positive product movement. Overall, the market sentiments fluctuated throughout.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the Cryolite market is expected to remain anchored in the upcoming months as no drastic changes in the downstream demands are projected, given the current market fundamentals and overstocked inventories.

Production Processes

Cryolite is produced from secondary aluminium dross. Secondary aluminium dross is first pretreated, or water washed, followed by a pyro-hydrometallurgical process to remove silicon impurities and extract the aluminium component, which further undergoes carbonation to give cryolite.
