Industry chain: raw materials, pure benzene: This week, the price of pure benzene has been rising rapidly. Data released earlier this month showed that in June, China imported only 20,000 tons of pure benzene from Korea, while in the first five months of 2019, the average monthly export volume from Korea to China was more than 150,000. Pure benzene from Korea generally accounts for more than half of China’s total imports. The main reason for the substantial reduction of Korean supply is that Chinese downstream factories concentrate on refusing orders from June to July in consideration of import costs. In addition, there is a supply gap of pure benzene in the United States, resulting in a huge price gap between the United States and South Korea, and a large number of Korean goods are diverted to the United States for arbitrage, resulting in a sharp drop in pure benzene exported to China. Aniline: Within a week, the aniline market rose steadily from north to south. In the North China market, the average tender price of Jinling pure benzene has increased by nearly 245 yuan/ton compared with last week, and the wide range of cost has increased, resulting in profit loss of aniline. However, downstream demand drags down the market obviously. North China’s enterprises are generally shipped, and their inventory remains high. North China market is weak, stable shipment to inventory within a week. In the East China market, the price of aniline in North China rose narrowly because of the strong support of cost and the low pressure of shipment from the East China entrepreneurs.
