On the whole, except for December, the zinc plating price in Tianjin in the same month of 2018 is higher than that in 2019, and the highest price difference appears in January 2019, which is 660 yuan / ton compared with January 2018. From the perspective
of trend, the price trend in the second quarter and the third quarter in recent two years is basically the same. The biggest contrast occurs from November to December. From November to December in 2018, the price dropped about 600 yuan / ton, while the
price rose by 200 yuan / ton from November to December this year, forming a huge contrast.
Looking back on the price trend of zinc plating in Tianjin since this year, the highest prices of both private and state-owned enterprises appeared in May.

According to statistics, the inventory of zinc plating in North China was between 22000 tons and 40000 tons in 2018, and the inventory was basically maintained at about 28000 tons at the end of 2018. In 2019, the zinc
plating inventory in North China from January to May is lower than that of the same period last year, and that from June to December is higher than that of the same period last year. Since the second half of this year, the national steel inventory has
continued to decrease, but the zinc plating inventory in North China is still high and continues to fluctuate at a high level.
In 2019, the overall price of zinc plating in Tianjin presents "first increase and then decrease". From January to may,
the price of zinc plating continues to rise. In May, the price of zinc plating reaches the highest point of the whole year, and then it enters a long-term decline channel. Originally, the price of zinc plating in Tianjin will continue to fall in November,
but it will usher in a wave of "sudden" small rise. The current price of zinc plating in Tianjin is 4560 yuan / ton, slightly higher than the annual average level. In terms of inventory, in recent months, China's total steel inventory has continued to
decline, but the zinc plating inventory in North China is still high. The main reason is that North China is the concentrated place for steel mills, and the steel mills put in large quantities and the transportation is more convenient. In terms of mentality,
according to market feedback, the overall profit of this year's varieties is average, and even some steel mill traders are hanging upside down. However, in recent years, the general environment policy is favorable, and the steel mills are willing to support
the price, and the market is optimistic about the next year's market.
