The salicylic acid market is running smoothly this week. It was in the off-season and the demand was not high. In addition, in the rainy season in the south, some downstream enterprises stopped production and stopped work, which inhibited the demand for salicylic acid. Foreign exports did not improve significantly, and the price of raw materials declined. The trend of salicylic acid decreased obviously and steadily, yielding a small profit.

For phenol, from the end of July, the operating rate is expected to pick up, the supply is relatively sufficient, the demand side is looking at the buyer’s downturn, the industry’s prosperity is not good, and the factory’s start-up is also gradually declining. From the international situation, some factories are gradually returning to work, and the import volume is steadily increasing. As for the phenol Market, it is difficult to find the low price. As for some traders, the cost of holding goods in the early stage is high, and the mentality of raising price is strong. However, the downstream bid is low, the factory is close to the settlement, and the market supply is slightly tense, and the actual transaction is not optimistic. The business association predicted that the demand side is hard to say good, and the supply side is full of bad news, and the phenol Market is hard to change in the short term.
3、 Future forecast
Salicylic acid analysts of the business agency believe that the consumption off-season superimposes the southern plum rain season, which suppresses part of the demand. Salicylic acid enterprises generally ship goods and light trading. It is expected that the trend will continue to be weak and stable in the short term.
