Dimethyl ether market rose first and then fell, slightly adjusted, and the operating rate of this week was lower than that of last week. Cost methanol rose slightly, while liquefied gas rose steadily, with a relatively strong trend, supporting the DME market. Methanol rose slightly at the beginning of the week, while dimethyl ether followed. However, the market terminal demand has some influence on the price of DME, and then Henan xinlianxin implemented the two-day minimum guarantee policy. The market was favorable with limited support, and the price fell later. But at present, local profits are close to costs, and manufacturers have no intention of deep decline. Some manufacturers stop to stock, the market supply decreases, and the price gradually stabilizes.

 

Industry: according to the price monitoring of the business agency, in the 46th week of 2019 (11.18-11.22), there are seven commodities in the list of commodity prices rising and falling, among which the top three commodities are MTBE (2.05%), WTI crude oil (1.49%) and dimethyl ether (1.32%). There are 5 kinds of commodities falling on a month on month basis, and the top 3 products are petroleum coke (- 3.18%), liquefied natural gas (- 1.51%) and asphalt (- 0.59%). This week’s average was 0.17%.

 

Polyglutamic acid agricultural grade

III. future forecast

 

According to DME analysts of business club, at present, the demand for DME terminal continues to be poor. Although the price has a small rise, it has limited support for the market. Liquefied gas has a small rise under the boost of CP in December, which has certain support for the market. At present, the profit is close to the cost, and the manufacturers are willing to support the market. It is expected that the future market may rise steadily in the short term.

II. Analysis and comment

 

Raw materials: port stocks of pure benzene rose slightly this week, but the impact was not significant. The market of pure benzene is weak, and the weak situation continues in a week. At present, the listing price is 5250-5351 yuan / ton.

 

Product: at the beginning of this week, a 100000 ton aniline plant was shut down in Jinling, with a slight decrease in supply. However, the overall inventory of enterprises is on the high side, and enterprises continue to reduce prices to promote shipment.

 

III. future expectation

 

Polyglutamic acid cosmetic grade

Raw materials: weak downstream demand for pure benzene will still restrict the recovery of the market. It is predicted that the short-term pure benzene market is difficult to return to temperature, and the weak operation is the main one.

 

The downstream demand is general, which is difficult to boost the aniline Market. It is expected that aniline will continue to operate weakly and stably next week.

Polyglutamic acid 30% agricultural grade

Industry chain: upstream: since the second half of the year, the mainstream quotation of acrylonitrile in the domestic market has been reduced by shocks, among which the high price appeared in late September, and the price has been reduced by steps since October, with an overall five-month reduction of about 2000-3000 yuan / ton, with a shock range of about 15%; downstream: water treatment engineering construction, the cold and hot weather has an impact on it, and the downstream procurement is also greatly affected by it. Manufacturer: the manufacturer in Henan main production area stopped production from August to September, and started work normally before and after, with occasional environmental inspection, little production impact and stable supply of goods.

 

Polyglutamic acid

Industry: since the end of July, this round of intermittent shutdown has basically ended, and the manufacturers have started to resume production. This round of shutdown cycle returns: 1. In late July, recently, the water purification and environmental protection enterprises in Yong’an Road sub district office of Gongyi City, Henan Province received the notice of shutdown, which requires that: Based on the analysis of the city’s environmental pollution and future pollution weather, the Municipal Office of tackling key problems requires all the depth The management enterprises will stop production and management before acceptance, and can resume production after dispatching or acceptance according to the key work office. 2. Stop production again after resumption of production: it will resume production for ten days in August, and start to stop production again on 15th. According to the manufacturer, the stop production is more affected by the National Games held in Zhengzhou on September 8th. The local environmental protection inspection is strict, and all local enterprises in Gongyi are required to stop production for environmental protection treatment and maintenance. 3. After the National Games on September 8, the local manufacturers did not receive the notice of commencement immediately, and the strict inspection of environmental protection was in progress. In late September, local manufacturers in Gongyi began to resume production one after another, and the supply of goods gradually returned to normal. From May, October and November to now, the manufacturer’s production is basically normal; the environmental protection inspection is strict, there are occasional stoppages, the production impact is small, and the market mainstream quotation is small and down.

 

Aftermarket forecast: according to the analysis of the business agency, in November, the North has gradually entered the warm season. The environmental protection inspection is strict, the manufacturer has little influence, the production is basically normal, the supply of goods is stable, and the downstream demand is good. The price of acrylonitrile, as the upstream raw material, was adjusted to 8.62%, and the market price of polyacrylamide fell in a step-by-step manner this month. Affected by the cost change, the follow-up stability may be slightly reduced.

On November 25, the price trend of light soda ash in East China fell narrowly

I. price trend

 

According to the monitoring data of the business agency, the trend of the price of soda ash in East China fell narrowly on the 25th, with the average ex factory price of 1643.33 yuan / ton, down 4.09%. On November 25, the commodity index of light soda ash was 84.27, down 3.59 points from yesterday, 28.50% from 117.86 (2017-11-21), the highest point in the cycle, and 33.44% higher than 63.15, the lowest point on November 18, 2015. (Note: cycle refers to 2011-09-01 to now)

 

II. Market analysis

 

Polyglutamic acid agriculture

Product: on the 25th, the price of soda ash enterprises was mostly lowered, and some of them were stable. Kunshan Jinggang Industrial Group Co., Ltd. has seen a decline of 160 yuan / ton of light soda ash, with a current offer of 1530 yuan / ton. Haohua Junhua Group Co., Ltd. has a temporary price stability compared with last week, with a factory price of 1600 yuan / ton of light soda ash and 1800 yuan / ton of heavy soda. Huai’an Bolian Trade Co., Ltd. has a temporary factory price stability, with a factory price of 1680 yuan / ton of light soda ash and 780 yuan of heavy soda ash/ Tons. According to the data monitoring of business association, the market price of soda ash enterprises in Hebei has also been reduced, with the price between 1350-1530 yuan / ton.

 

In terms of supply: the starting load of Dahua soda plant has been increased, while the maintenance of CNOOC soda plant is still in progress, and the double ring maintenance plan may be postponed to December. There are not many manufacturers for maintenance and production restriction in the near future. The starting load of domestic soda ash manufacturers is high. In addition, due to the weather in the northwest, the transportation is inconvenient in the snow season. In addition, the freight has been increased, which is unfavorable for the delivery of soda ash enterprises. The demand of float glass for heavy soda is reduced, the price of soda ash continues to decline in the near future, and the enthusiasm of end users and traders is not high. On the other hand, soda ash enterprises have no environmental protection policy pressure, and the inventory of soda manufacturers is still likely to rise.

 

Demand: in the near future, the float glass manufacturers have made considerable profits, but the number of water cooling float lines has increased, and the demand for heavy alkali of float glass has slightly decreased. The demand is sluggish, the market of daily use glass is poor, some small glass bottle manufacturers shut down, the market of glass enterprises is not optimistic, the demand for soda ash is reduced, the downstream just needs to pick up, the industry procurement is stable, it is difficult to make a breakthrough.

 

Polyglutamic acid 30% agricultural grade

III. future forecast

 

According to the soda ash analyst of the business association, there are few manufacturers planning to repair and reduce in the near future, the starting load of soda ash manufacturers remains high, the inventory of soda ash manufacturers continues to increase, and the delivery pressure of manufacturers does not decrease. The downstream demand of soda ash is limited and the market is not optimistic. Under the influence of cost pressure, the market is oversupplied and the price is reduced. However, the contradiction between supply and demand in the market is still prominent, and it is difficult to improve the demand in the downstream. Some downstream users said that they planned to start preparing goods before the festival in December. It is difficult for the domestic soda ash market to improve greatly in the short term due to the low mentality of the industry. It depends on the inventory situation and the downstream market demand.

Last week, adipic acid market was weak and stable (11.18-22)

I. price trend

Adipic acid market trend chart

 

According to the data in the business club’s large list, last week (11.18-22), adipic acid in China remained weak, with little price change, but it still remained in the downturn. As of last weekend, the mainstream price was generally 7900-8100 yuan / ton.

 

II. Analysis and comment

 

Last week, the adipic acid market was adjusted in a narrow range with little price change. From the basic point of view, loose supply and weak demand are still the main factors hindering the rebound of adipic acid market, as well as the upstream raw material market did not show any good. At present, the weak demand in the downstream of adipic acid, together with the increase of supply, leads to the increase of social inventory pressure. Since October, the market has been in the stage of de stocking. The effect of de stocking for two consecutive months is not obvious. The enterprise inventory and market inventory still maintain a high level, which is also an important reason why the price of adipic acid has not rebounded. In terms of region: the prices in East China and South China are still low, and some dealers are slightly weak, but the range is limited to 50-100 yuan / ton. The market atmosphere is a little cold, dealers actively give priority to profit delivery, and the market maintains a weak and volatile pattern. At present, the downstream market still generally holds a wait-and-see attitude, and the transaction is slightly deadlocked. In addition, the upstream cost has not changed much. Although pure benzene has ended the downward shock pattern and rebounded slightly, it has not brought much positive effect on the adipic acid market. According to the monitoring of the business association, the price of pure benzene has only increased by 0.95% (as shown in the figure below) from November 1 to 22, which may be one of the reasons why the price of adipic acid remains weak.

 

Polyglutamic acid cosmetic grade

Trend chart of pure benzene Market

 

First of all, from the perspective of supply, the market is still dominated by overall oversupply, manufacturers and market stocks are still both high, and dealers are under great pressure, which is largely affected by the downturn of downstream purchase orders. In the early stage of adipic acid rise, dealers have hoarded a large number of sources of goods, and the inventory pressure is relatively high. In addition, the main reason why adipic acid price didn’t go out of the weak market is that the plant operating rate is high, the export market is depressed and the supply pressure is too high.

 

PA66 market trend chart

 

In terms of demand, the downstream procurement did not improve significantly. In November, nylon 66 market was depressed, and the downstream operating rate continued to decline, basically below 50%, which did not form a strong boost to the upstream adipic acid. According to the monitoring of the business agency, the downstream PA66 of adipic acid has continued to decline since September. As of November 22, the decline was as high as 6% (as shown in the figure above). PA66 was close to There is still no improvement in the market in the future. The downturn in the downstream market of adipic acid is the decisive factor that makes it difficult for adipic acid to get out of the predicament.

 

Polyglutamic acid agricultural grade

III. future forecast

 

Adipic acid analysts from the chemical branch of business society think that adipic acid fluctuates in a narrow range, and the market is relatively weak. In the later stage, it is unlikely that the price will reverse. On the one hand, we should pay attention to the effect of market de stocking, on the other hand, we should pay attention to whether the downstream demand can follow up, and we expect that the market will continue to be weak in the near future.

The price of glycol will remain stable in the short term (11.11-11.15)

I. price trend

Polyglutamic acid fertiliser grade

At the beginning of this week, the price of ethylene glycol single can in East China was 4515 yuan / ton, and on Friday it was 4735 yuan / ton, up 4.87% from the same period last week.

 

II. Analysis of influencing factors

 

Polyglutamic acid cosmetic grade

This week, the total operating rate in China was 57.11%, of which the operating rate of non coal to glycol unit was about 60.24%, and the operating rate of coal to glycol unit was 52.69%, slightly down. The starting load of the downstream polyester plant is about 89.49%, maintaining a high level, and the proportion of production and sales is about 55%. As of Thursday, the main port of East China’s glycol port inventory was about 429600 tons, down 12.33% from Monday. Although the inventory decline is obvious, the delivery situation in recent days is not good. In the later stage, glycol is expected to reach 188000 tons at the port, increasing the risk of accumulation.

 

III. future forecast

 

Glycol analysts at the business news agency believe that manufacturers have made a slight correction to the ex factory price of glycol later this week, which shows that the market expectation has increased. At the same time, the market price in East China, which has been depressed for a long time, has also increased significantly. However, the purchase intention of the downstream polyester market is not strong, and it is mainly to digest inventory, so the daily delivery of glycol is at a low level. It is expected that the number of arrivals will increase in the later period, and the production of new devices in the medium and long term will suppress the price. Combined with the above factors, the market price of glycol is expected to remain stable for some time.

“Big drop” in DME Market

Price trend:

 

In recent January, the domestic market of dimethyl ether fell continuously, with a large range. On October 15, the average price of the domestic market of dimethyl ether was 3550 yuan / ton, and on November 15, the average price was 3066.67 yuan / ton, with a decline of 13.61% during the period. The price was 34.73% lower than the same period last year.

 

In September, it entered the traditional sales peak season of DME market, and the market opened the upward channel as expected. The price rose continuously from the beginning of September, with a rise of 23.26% on the 40th day, but “after a big rise, it will be accompanied by a big drop”. The peak season of “golden nine silver ten” has not passed, and the market of dimethyl ether has not been strong. Since October 16, the price has shown a continuous downward trend, and the market of dimethyl ether has experienced a “big drop” like the weather.

 

Polyglutamic acid fertilizer grade

Since the middle of October, with the recovery of production of some plants shut down in the early stage, the market supply has increased, which makes the market with unbalanced supply and demand turn to oversupply, and the competition is gradually fierce. But on the demand side, the terminal demand is limited, the downstream receiving strength is not good, and just needs replenishment. In order to avoid the profit loss caused by the early purchase, most of them hold a wait-and-see attitude. The market transaction atmosphere is low, the inventory in Henan continues to accumulate, and under the double pressure of sales and inventory, the profit is continuously released for shipment, so the price is easy to fall and hard to rise. With the price falling to the current low, the seller is willing to hold the market. At present, although the decline has been slow, the market is lack of obvious positive support.

 

Comparison of price trend of methanol dimethyl ether liquefied gas on October 14-11-15, 2019:

It can be seen from the figure that in terms of raw materials, methanol market has declined in a weak way in recent January, with the trend of “a large dive”, followed by a small rebound and then a narrow adjustment. The price trend of dimethyl ether and methanol deviated from each other in stages, but the decline was almost the same. The inland and port of methanol declined to varying degrees. The port continued to be weak in the day, the futures market kept prices down, and spot buying maintained rigid demand. On the mainland market, the wait-and-see mentality is obvious. Some enterprises haven’t adjusted their prices yet, and the prices fall down due to poor trading in some regions. It is reported that the port price is low at present, and some goods flow back to Shandong, which to some extent suppresses the trend of the mainland market. In addition, the northwest guidance price has been adjusted this week, so we need to pay attention to the transmission to the mainland market.

 

Polyglutamic acid cosmetic grade

In the aspect of civil gas, the trend of dimethyl ether and liquefied gas is declining as a whole, but the decline of liquefied gas is less than that of dimethyl ether. At present, the price difference of gas and ether in Henan Province is about 700-900 yuan / ton, that in Hebei Province is about 800 yuan / ton, and that in Shandong Province is about 800-900 yuan / ton. The trend of civil gas market in recent January shows a slight rebound after a continuous decline. International crude oil continues to decline. There are frequent arrivals from terminals to ships, and the market supply pressure is large. Although the terminal demand has increased in winter, the terminal demand for propane is greater than that for civil use. And with the arrival of the northern heating season in November, the demand in the north will turn weak. At present, the contradiction between domestic supply and demand has appeared. The main manufacturers in the region are not able to deliver goods continuously, the inventory pressure is increasing, and the market price of liquefied gas is falling one after another.

 

Future forecast:

 

Sun Yaolin, a business agency, believes that at present, methanol supply is abundant, traditional downstream demand remains weak, and some downstream starts are low due to environmental protection factors, which further weakens the demand. The short-term domestic methanol market is dominated by differential finishing, with partial or continuous decline. The liquefied gas market is dominated by narrow volatility, and the relatively sufficient supply restricts the price rise. The market of cost methanol and liquefied gas is weak, and the good is limited, so it is difficult to drive the rise of DME. In recent years, Henan xinlianxin has repeatedly implemented the minimum guarantee policy to protect the market price, but the transaction atmosphere has not improved significantly. The market price has been continuously reduced. Some enterprises have been on the edge of profit and loss. In addition, the environmental protection inspection in Henan has been strengthened, which affects the market mentality. Multiple negative factors are intertwined, and the DME market is expected to continue to be weak in the short term.
