Phase II of Hainan Refinery and Chemical Co., Ltd. started operation, Luoyang Petrochemical Co., Ltd. suspended shipment due to faults, Jinling Petrochemical Co., Ltd. stopped production and maintenance of phenyl equipment, phenyl supply was temporarily stable, the shortage of phenyl was alleviated, and the good momentum of phenyl market in the future was weakened.
Factor Analysis of Industrial Chain
After the festival, the price of mixed xylene fell sharply, the price of raw materials fell sharply, the cost of o-phenyl fell, the market of o-phenyl was negative, and the downward pressure of o-phenyl price increased in the future. Overall, the cost of o-phenyl declined, and the future market is not good for o-phenyl.
After the festival, the price of phthalic anhydride fell sharply, downstream demand declined, the demand gap of phthalic anhydride decreased, the market was positive, and the driving force of phthalic anhydride rise weakened. As for plasticizers, DOP market fell, and downward pressure increased. Downstream market of phenyl was negative. The driving force of phenyl rise weakened and downward pressure increased.
3. Future market forecast:
Bai Jiaxin, an analyst of business community’s o-xylene data, believes that after the festival, the market of o-xylene has increased rapidly and the price of o-xylene has remained stable. The price of raw materials mixed xylene has fallen sharply, the cost of phthalic anhydride and plasticizer has fallen sharply downstream, and the negative pressure on the market of phthalic anhydride has increased as the market of industrial chain has fallen. As for the start-up rate of phenyl plants, the second phase of Hainan Refinery and Chemical Co., Ltd. started operation, the failure of Luoyang Petrochemical Co., Ltd. suspended shipment, Jinling Petrochemical Co., Ltd. stopped production and maintenance of phenyl equipment, and the start-up of phenyl equipment was low and stable; as for the external market, the quotation of phenyl external market declined slightly, while the port stock increased, but it was still at a low level, which was advantageous to domestic phenyl market. In summary, the downward and downward trend of the o-xylene industry chain has declined, but the market for o-xylene is negative; the low starting rate of o-xylene equipment has been maintained, the supply of o-xylene has remained stable, the supply of o-xylene is still slightly inadequate, and the o-xylene industry has a certain positive momentum; the overall market for o-xylene is mixed, the momentum for the rise of the price of o-xylene in the future market has weakened, and the pressure for the decline has increased, and the market
Future markets should focus on: the start-up of phthalic manufacturers, phthalic port inventory, downstream phthalic anhydride and plasticizer market. Attention can be paid to the cost of o-benzene.
