According to the data monitoring of SunSirs, the market weakened from January 10 to 11. Due to the rapid price rise in the civil LPG market after the festival, the market transaction atmosphere was obviously weakened compared with the previous period, and the power to continue to rise was insufficient. DME market was affected; manufacturers slightly reduce the ex-factory price. But just two days later, the market went up again, and the wide rise of methanol cost market boosted the market. On January 12, the international crude oil rose, and the news boosted the market mentality. The civil LPG market followed the rise, and the gas ether price difference opened again. The LPG futures rose, and the DME market mentality improved, following the rise of civil gas. Downstream active replenishment, manufacturers ship smoothly.
