In June, epichlorohydrin market fluctuated and fell. As of June 29, the average price quoted by epichlorohydrin enterprises was 10433.33 yuan / ton, a decrease of 5.72% compared with June 1 (11066.67 yuan / ton), and an increase of 8.87% year-on-year in a three-month cycle.

 

In the first half of June, the average quotation price of epichlorohydrin enterprises was 11066.67 yuan / ton on the first half of June. However, the spot supply of epichlorohydrin was tight, but the downstream purchasing enthusiasm was not good. On the third day, the market price was lowered to 11000 yuan / ton. The trading atmosphere was stalemate and the actual orders were limited. On the fourth day, the market price was again lowered to 10833.33 yuan / T. the propylene oxide rose steadily and stabilized. The spot supply of epichlorohydrin remained tight and still in stock The price was raised to 11000 yuan / ton on the 6th and stabilized temporarily on the 7th. On the 8th to 11th, the average price quoted by the enterprise was 10833.33 yuan / T. the supply side was tight, but the raw material propylene plummeted, and the cost support was insufficient. The downstream liquid resin factories were shut down for maintenance, and the supply and demand game played. The trading atmosphere was light. On the 12th, the price was again lowered to 10766.67 yuan / T, and the manufacturers offered profits for shipment On the 15th, the price of raw material propylene was raised, but the bearish mood was obvious. The mainstream quotation of epichlorohydrin enterprises was 9800-10300 yuan / T, with a decrease of 2.71% in the first half of June.

 

In the second half of June, the average quotation price of epichlorohydrin enterprises was 10666.67 yuan / ton on June 16, and the price of raw material propylene continued to rise, but the enthusiasm of downstream inquiry was not high, and the intention of buying was low. With the qualified products of Haixing in Jiangsu province put into the market, more attention was paid to the downstream, and epichlorohydrin manufacturers were under pressure to ship. The prices of 17,18,19 were continuously reduced to 10500 yuan / T, and the actual transaction volume in the market was limited. On the 23rd, the average price quoted by epichlorohydrin enterprises was 10466.67 yuan / ton, and the market trading atmosphere was light. On the 29th, the price was again lowered to 10433.33 yuan / ton.

On June 29, the market price of upstream propylene in Shandong continued to rise. According to the price of business agency, Shandong propylene market increased by about 250 yuan / ton in a week at the beginning of June, and there was an obvious correction in the price in the middle of June, with a cumulative decrease of 350 yuan / ton in the seven days of the second week. From June 14 in the middle of the month, the price stopped falling again and rose again. Last Friday, June 19, the price had risen 350-450 yuan / ton. The price remained stable at the weekend, with a total drop of about 250 yuan / ton from the 22nd to 26th. After the Dragon Boat Festival holiday, the price rose again from the 27th. Today, it still rose by 50 yuan / ton. The market transaction is between 6750 and 7000 yuan / ton, and the mainstream price is about 6800 yuan / ton. Propylene manufacturers are now under low inventory pressure, some units are out of service, crude oil prices have risen slightly, and the downstream market operating rate is ideal. It is expected that the propylene price will still rise slightly in recent days, which has a certain positive impact on epichlorohydrin.

 

On June 29, the downstream epoxy resin Market in East China declined narrowly, the market conversation was cold and the transaction was insufficient, which had a certain suppression effect on epichlorohydrin.

 

3、 Future forecast

 

According to the analysts of epichlorohydrin of the business club, the price of propylene oxide is going up and the support from the cost side is strengthened. However, the downstream shipment is not smooth, the buying gas is light and the demand side is weak. It is expected that the epichlorohydrin market will be weak in the short term, and more attention should be paid to the change of raw material price.

The market of n-propanol rose steadily in the first ten days of June

 

At the beginning of June, driven by the small increase of isopropanol market again, the sentiment of n-propanol market rose. On June 4, the domestic market of n-propanol rose as a whole. According to the monitoring data of business agency, the factory quotation of domestic n-propanol was 11700 yuan / ton (including packaging), which was 533 yuan / ton higher than that at the end of May. Subsequently, the market as a whole stable operation to mid month. On the 16th, with the rise of upstream propylene and the continuous rise of raw material ethylene, and the overall high price of isopropanol, the market demand for n-propanol is still on the rise, and the supply is tight. Some n-propanol manufacturers and dealers follow the market to raise the ex factory quotation of n-propanol again by 200-500 yuan / T, resulting in the domestic market of n-propanol to resume in mid June Degrees go up.

 

High stable operation of n-propanol in China in late June

 

Since the 20th, the overall high-level stable operation of the domestic n-propanol market. The market price of isopropanol dropped significantly in late June, resulting in the demand for n-propanol as solvent weakened. However, at present, the main production method of n-propanol in China is ethylene process. Since June, the price of raw material ethylene has been steadily moving up, which has given support to the cost of n-propanol. In addition, the stock of n-propanol is tight, so the overall quotation of the market remains high and stable. It is not ruled out that some dealers can make decisions according to their own needs Inventory slightly reduced the price of n-propanol to stimulate shipment, but at present, the overall trend of the market is not affected, the market is mainly stable.

 

As of June 30, the manufacturer, Nanjing Rongxin Chemical Co., Ltd., had normal operation of 30000 T / a n-propanol plant, and the ex factory quotation of n-propanol for external bulk water was RMB 11000 / T (cash purified water ex warehouse price), which was the same as that of a week ago, and increased by 500 yuan / T compared with the beginning of June. At present, the inventory is relatively small and the shipment is carried out according to the plan; the n-propanol quotation of Jinan Pulai Chemical Co., Ltd. is 10800 yuan/ The results showed that the total price of propanol from Aite (Shandong) new material Co., Ltd. was 10500 yuan / T (bulk water) and 11300 yuan / ton (bulk water) of Jinan Mingwei Chemical Co., Ltd. The price quoted by some traders of n-propanol in stock is relatively high, and the price is not easy to monitor. As a result, the specific negotiation situation may be different. Each region also has its own difference. The actual negotiation is mainly based on the actual order, and the future market will wait for the change of raw material price and shipment.

Upstream, propylene oxide Market in June went up all the way. On 1 day, the average price quoted by propylene oxide enterprises was 8933.33 yuan / ton. Due to the rise of raw material prices and the support of new downstream orders, the price of propylene oxide began to rise, with strong cost support, no pressure on factory inventory and rigid replenishment in the downstream. In addition, some propylene oxide manufacturers reduced the burden, and the supply side decreased. Under the downstream fear of rising, new orders increased, and the supply side supported the manufacturers to maintain the market The average price quoted by propylene oxide enterprises was 9800 yuan / ton, up 9.70% in half a month. However, the propylene oxide manufacturers did not have inventory pressure for the time being, and the mentality of price support remained. The market quotation continued to rise steadily. As of the 28th, the average price quoted by propylene oxide enterprises was 10100 yuan / ton, up 13.06% compared with that on June 1 (8933.33 yuan / ton).

The current price is up 28.22% month on month, and the current price is 17.19% lower than last year. Asian ethylene market prices remained stable. As of the 26th, CFR Northeast Asia closed at 845-855 USD / T, CFR Southeast Asia closed at 785-795 USD / T. European ethylene market price rose, as of the 26th, the European ethylene market price was FD, northwest Europe closed at 720-730 US dollars / ton, CIF northwest Europe closed at 675-683 US dollars / ton. The price of ethylene in the U.S. rose to 275-293 U.S. dollars / ton as of the 26th. Generally speaking, the ethylene market in Europe and the United States is mainly on the rise. The demand of the whole ethylene market is better, and the trading atmosphere is active, and the rise is relatively sufficient.

 

N-propanol may fall in July due to weakening demand

Overall, the domestic n-propanol market supply-demand relationship has been maintained in a relatively balanced state. In recent years, due to the demand for raw materials and as solvent, the market price has been rising all the way. At present, although the raw material support is strong, the downstream demand has weakened after the fall of isopropanol market, and some dealers have lowered their quotations. Although the overall impact on the market has not been obvious for the time being, this is undoubtedly the alarm of the later trend of the market. Therefore, it is expected that if the follow-up demand of n-propanol market can not be made up in time, the market of n-propanol may fluctuate and fall in July.

povidone Iodine

In the first three days of June, the market was in stable operation as a whole, and downstream procurement was on demand, with general market transactions. On April 4, due to the excessive inventory in some areas of n-butanol, the factory delivered the goods at a profit, and the market price of n-butanol decreased by 50-100 yuan / ton. Then, the market of n-butanol did not continue to decline, and the increase of propylene still provided cost support. Until the weekend (7), the market of n-butanol remained stable, the manufacturer mainly delivered orders, and the downstream just needed replenishment. On August 8, some n-butanol plant units were restarted, the supply side was relatively sufficient, coupled with the influence of weak propylene raw material, the downstream wait-and-see mood was heavy, the trading atmosphere turned weak, and the market price fell slightly.

Low half month end up n-butanol strong rally this week

 

Starting from this week, on the 15th, the mainstream price of n-butanol in China was increased. The main reason for the increase was that the willingness of some butanol units to switch to octanol was enhanced due to the high price difference between butanol and octanol. In addition, some factories stopped for maintenance, the inventory of n-butanol was low, the supply of goods was tight, the downstream just needed replenishment, the trading atmosphere was improved, and the factory’s offer was firm. On the 15th, according to the data monitoring of the business agency, the ex factory quotation of n-butanol of Luxi Chemical Co., Ltd. was 5500 yuan / ton, up 100 yuan / ton, or 1.85% compared with the price at the end of last week (12 days); the ex factory quotation of Wanhua Chemical Co., Ltd. in East China was 5500 yuan / ton, up 100 yuan / ton, or 1.85% compared with the price at the end of last week (12 days). Then this week, the supply of main n-butanol factories continued to be tight, and the overall market quotation moved up. In addition, the cost of propylene increased, which gave support to the cost of n-butanol. The factory inventory was low, the downstream purchasing atmosphere continued to improve, and the market low price quotation continued to decrease. This week, the quotation of n-butanol continued to rise. As of the 19th, the ex factory quotation of Wanhua chemical in East China is 5600 yuan / ton, up 100 yuan / ton this week; the ex factory quotation of Shandong lihuayi n-butanol is 5450 yuan / ton, up 100 yuan / ton this week; the ex factory quotation of Luxi n-butanol is 5600 yuan / ton, up 100 yuan / ton this week.
