The effective demand status of the late ductile iron manhole cover market may be variable
The upcoming "Red May", the domestic coke market is heating up, and the sound is rising. As the end of the month is approaching, the rising sound remains the same, and the operator's mentality is stable, expressing expectations for the market outlook. When analyzing and predicting the trend of the coke market in the later period, the operators and the industry believe that according to the current operating situation of the coke market, the entire market will continue to perform well in the short term, and the price will continue to rise, but the rise may weaken.

These factors are mainly reflected in the following aspects: The impact of changes in the effective demand of the coke market on the market outlook. During this period, the demand for coke market was increasing, mainly driven by the increase in output of the steel industry. Nowadays, the operating rate of blast furnaces in steel plants is gradually increasing, and some steel companies have passed rectifications to achieve environmental protection standards and resume production.
However, the coke inventory of some steel mills has been reduced. For example, the steel plant in Handan, Hebei, has mostly reduced the coke inventory to less than one week's usage, and the coke purchase enthusiasm is relatively high. Coke market demand is strong, supporting the continuous rise in coke prices. However, the effective demand of the terminal ductile iron manhole cover market in the later period may have variables, mainly due to the impact of environmental protection and limited production.
