Crude oil inventories increased for seven consecutive weeks, and prices continued to fall sharply, which could not support the price of ethylene, and the ethylene outer disk market followed another round of decline. The downstream styrene price consolidated after the sharp decline, and the ethanol market was at a low level, which could not support the price of ethylene, and there was a possibility of further decline.


Market outlook

The ethylene analyst of SunSirs believes that Saudi Arabia and Russia have severely divided on the agreement to reduce production, which has led to a plunge in crude oil. It fell to its lowest level since 2017. Unable to give ethylene price support, SunSirs analyst data analysts expect ethylene prices will continue to decline narrowly.
