This week, the domestic adipic acid market was mainly stable. After the correction of adipic acid Market in early April, it is mainly stable at present.

This week, the adipic acid plant maintained a normal operating rate of about 80-90%, and the inventory pressure of manufacturers increased slightly compared with that at the beginning of this month. In the short term, it is still in the process of destocking, the downstream demand is general, and the dealers' delivery is generally lower than the level in early April.
Cost side: the price of pure benzene went up this week, and the increase was relatively strong. According to the monitoring of SunSirs, the price of pure benzene increased by 7.6% this week, but the boosting effect on downstream adipic acid was weakened. As the profits of adipic acid manufacturers were still in a reasonable range, the factors influencing the price of adipic acid were more focused on downstream demand, but the weak demand led to the weak rise and fall of adipic acid.
Demand side: from the perspective of downstream PA66 of adipic acid, according to the monitoring of SunSirs, the market of PA66 continued to decline in April, with a monthly decline of 4.08% as of the 23rd. The weak downstream demand had obvious impact on adipic acid.

In the future, the market supply pressure of adipic acid may rise in the later stage, mainly due to the increase of shipping pressure of enterprises, the slowdown of downstream procurement, and the high price may lead to the accumulation of storage. It is expected that adipic acid will continue to maintain a low market, and the upward momentum is relatively weak.
