Downstream epoxy resin, the epoxy resin market rose on January 19, raw material bisphenol A rose, cost support was strong, factory sales were temporarily no pressure, downstream just needed to follow up mainly, the market atmosphere was acceptable.
The ECH analyst of SunSirs believes that the current price of raw material propylene is rising, and there is some support from the cost side, but the market is still in a situation of oversupply. Holders are more actively selling goods. It is expected that in the short term, the ECH market may be weakened and consolidate. More attention needs to be paid to the downstream stocking before the holiday.
