II. Market Analysis

Product: This week, the cyclohexanone market is running steadily upward. Sinopec’s pure benzene listing has been raised again by 100 yuan/ton to 5350 yuan/ton, with good cost support. Within a week, chemical fibers can still be purchased on the market. Hengyi, Shenyuan and other factories have increased the demand for cyclohexanone. Other factories have made up a small number of vacancies, and chemical fibers orders in cyclohexanone factories are still acceptable. Solvent market demand is general, and most of them are purchased on demand. Luxi Cyclohexanone has not been exported from stock for the time being, so the supply of Cyclohexanone is on the tight side. At present, the main price of cyclohexanone is 8800-8900 yuan per ton cash, up 400 yuan per ton from last Thursday. Up to now, the mainstream negotiation in Shandong market is in the range of 8900-9000 yuan/ton cash delivery, the mainstream negotiation in East China market is in the range of 9100-9300 yuan/ton cash delivery, and the mainstream negotiation in South China market is in the range of 9400-9600 yuan/ton cash delivery.

Industry chain: raw materials, pure benzene, this week pure benzene prices soared and fell. At the beginning of the week, the inventory of East China Port continued to drop to about 170,000 tons. On the external market, the supply of the United States continues to be tight, and the operators believe that the arbitrage window between the United States and South Korea will be open for a long time. The decline of domestic stock and the high level of external market jointly led to the increase of domestic pure benzene quotation to 5600 yuan/ton, which is almost the same as FOB Korea price. However, the domestic downstream has little profit except styrene, strong resistance to high-priced pure benzene, and high selling price is difficult to respond to. Caprolactam: This week, the domestic caprolactam liquid spot market is basically stable. In terms of cost, the price of pure benzene continued to rise, and the price of East China market once rose to 5500 yuan per ton, but the follow-up was weak, and the price had been revised back. Sinopec’s listed price of pure benzene rose by 100 yuan/ton to 5350 yuan/ton. Cyclohexanone has a good demand in the near future. The ex-factory price has risen to 8700-8900 yuan/ton, and the cost of caprolactam is high. The atmosphere of supply and demand is slightly weak. With the restart of the pre-maintenance equipment, the overall start-up of caprolactam is improved, and the supply is increased.

3. Future Market Forecast

Cyclohexanone factory spot is not much, there is no inventory pressure, Luxi Cyclohexanone has the possibility of shipment in the near future. In the short run, the overall supply may increase steadily; in the long run, the early planned production of cyclohexanone plant in July, rumors have delayed the start-up time, and the possibility of new release capacity of cyclohexanone in the late part of the month is small. Cost side has some support, demand side, chemical fiber market gap still exists, the high rise is weak, and the profit margin is scarce, next week or slightly reduced. Cyclohexanone analysts at business associations expect high consolidation in the cyclohexanone market next week.

II. Analysis of Influencing Factors

Products: Spot export of high-grade goods in Northeast China has decreased significantly in the cycle. Some downstream goods in North China just need to bring some support to the spot market. A small number of high-grade goods in Northeast China have brought a significant boost to the spot market in North China during the week. However, with the rising market, some private enterprises in Shandong and Jiutai in Inner Mongolia and Silbang in Jiangsu are actively exporting goods, which brings some supplements to the supply side. In addition, the downstream rubber market is in a downturn, the market supply and demand fundamentals are good and limited, and the high price turnover is not good. Although all export nodes of Huajin in North China have reached a high turnover level in the past week, which has boosted the offer of middlemen to keep up with the increase, the news of high-price transaction is seldom heard under the drag of low inquiry intention downstream.

Industry chain: downstream synthetic rubber, styrene-butadiene rubber, this week, domestic styrene-butadiene rubber dry rubber factory price stability, styrene-butadiene rubber 1502 unit price 10000-10100 yuan/ton; oil-filled styrene-butadiene 1712 unit price 9050-9250 yuan/ton. The price of Qilu 1502E has been narrowly adjusted. The price of Qilu 1502E is near 10150 yuan/ton, which is 50 yuan/ton lower than that of last period. The price of Qilu 1712 is 9200 yuan/ton, which is 50-100 yuan/ton lower than that of last period. Cis-butadiene rubber, this week, domestic high cis-butadiene mainstream ex-factory price stabilized in the range of 10,320-10,500 yuan/ton; domestic cis-butadiene mainstream offer price adjusted to the range of 10,300-10,800 yuan/ton. SBS: Domestic SBS market oil glue low finishing, dry rubber road to small finishing.

3. Future Market Forecast

On the positive side, there is no pressure on domestic manufacturers’inventory, Sinopec’s internal supply is tight, and the export volume of Northeast supply is shrinking. On the negative side, synthetic rubber market is weak, some manufacturers’cost pressure, load drop, Liaoyang Petrochemical and Puyang Bluestar plant have restart expectations, spot supply in the North has incremental expectations, downstream inquiries for high-priced sources are limited. The shrinkage of high-grade goods in Northeast China and the downstream just need to be boosted. The high transaction price of a small amount of goods in the market boosted the spot market in North China. In the next cycle, on the one hand, with the restart of Liaoyang Petrochemical, Puyang Blue Star plant, and the export of Jiutai goods in Inner Mongolia, there is no lack of incremental expectation of spot supply in the market, and the lower reaches of the current high-price inquiries are limited, poor turnover brings drag on the high-level market, while the performance of rubber market is low, dragged by this drag, business associations succeeded. Olefin analysts expect that with the increase of supply next week, the high-end market will not lack weakening expectations, and the market as a whole will mainly fall back, but the supplier’s inventory is low, and the supply price may be relatively strong. We suggest that we pay attention to the guidance of market turnover.

Longzhong Information believes that the current upstream market volatility, the formaldehyde market has not yet affected, weak demand, formaldehyde market is expected to remain weak next week, consolidation and operation, there are sporadic adjustments. Acetic acid: The domestic acetic acid market has been regionalized this week. The start-up of vinyl acetate production enterprises in the lower reaches of Northwest China has been reduced, which has resulted in the continuous accumulation of the stock of mainstream acetic acid production enterprises in the region. The local transportation costs are higher, the vehicles are limited, and the outflow of goods from northwest China is less, which aggravates the situation of excess supply in the market. The production enterprises are forced to gradually lower their quotations. Dimethyl ether: This week, dimethyl ether shows a trend of regionalization, with different declines and rises.
