    1 Market Highlights

    Black silicon carbide
    Most producers firmed their prices of 88%min in December based on the high costs and high demand, while they cut their prices of 98%min to boost sales in December due to the sluggish market demand.

    Most exporters firmed their prices of 88%min in late December due to the high market demand and the increased domestic prices while they cut their prices of 98%min in December due to the sluggish overseas market demand and reduced domestic prices.

    Despite the stable export prices, given the increased sea freights, most European sellers increased their prices in the past month.

    Green silicon carbide
    Given the dropped petroleum coke prices and the sluggish market demand, most producers cut their prices to maintain sales.

    Most exporters insisted on their prices this month given the soft overseas buyers demand but firm domestic prices.

    2 Economy and Policy

    2.1 China to adjust import and export tariffs in 2024
    China will adjust import and export tariffs rate on some commodities from January 1, 2024, the Customs Tariff Commission of the State Council said in a statement on Thursday. In 2024, China will implement provisional import tariffs that are lower than the most-favored-nation (MFN) rates on 1,010 commodities.Asian Metal Copyright4% YoY.Asian Metal Copyright Import tariffs on key resources, equipment and components that are domestically scarce, such as lithium chloride, cobalt carbonate, low arsenic fluorite and gas diffusion layers used for fuel cell, will be lowered to facilitate the development of the country's advanced manufacturing industries.Asian Metal Copyright2.Asian Metal Copyright In addition, China will continue to impose export tariffs on 107 commodities including ferrochrome, with 68 commodities subject to provisional tariffs.

    The decreasing export tariffs would increase China's silicon carbide competitiveness.

    2.2 China completes on-site work for third round of central environmental inspections
    Five central environmental inspection teams were recently dispatched to Fujian, Henan, Hainan, Gansu and Qinghai to conduct the first batch of the third round of inspections. As of December 18, the on-site inspections carried out in the five provinces have been completed.Asian Metal Copyright Black Silicon Carbide 88%min 0-10mm Delivered Europe Price Trend from 2023-11-01 to 2023-12-31 EURt 4.Asian Metal Copyright The first batch of inspection teams have dealt with public complaints related to 13,718 cases, with 608 companies subject to penalty and a total of 180 officials held accountable for environmental damage.

    The completion of inspection would release the supply of silicon carbide in Gansu and Qinghai.
