Analysis Of Steel Price Trend On February 15, 2022
As the demand for construction projects in China has not been restored after the Spring Festival holiday, and due to the Olympic Games, production restrictions in northern China still exist. Thanks to the efforts of the Chinese government, the energy supply situation has improved significantly recently. During the Spring Festival holiday, all regions and central enterprises have made efforts to stabilize coal production and supply and scientifically arrange production and sales. The daily output, supply and shipment of coal are higher than those in the same period of the lunar calendar, effectively ensuring the demand for coal during the festival. Coal production in various regions has rebounded rapidly and has basically returned to the pre holiday level. The coal storage of China's unified dispatching power plant remains above 165 million tons, an increase of more than 40 million tons over the same period last year. With the accelerated recovery of coal production, the demand for coal in superimposed heating season has decreased, and the guarantee capacity of coal supply will be further enhanced.
