Recently, the methanol market has fluctuated and sorted out, and the cost support was general. The formaldehyde market was basically stable due to the influence of methanol, and the downstream demand was difficult to improve and purchases were maintained just on demand. The formaldehyde market trade was general, and the market fluctuated little.
Upstream methanol situation: The domestic methanol market had a slight upward trend, but the stamina was insufficient and the upward trend was weak. The main reasons are the following two aspects: one is the obvious decline in costs and the weakness of chemical coal in the pit; the other is that the demand continues to be weak and the market confidence is insufficient.
This week, the methanol market first fell and then rose, mainly in shock and consolidation. The downstream plate factories were generally under construction, and they tended to take a wait-and-see attitude towards the formaldehyde market, with strong bargaining sentiment. The market inventory was not well digested, it was difficult to increase the price of formaldehyde, the low price is maintained, and the formaldehyde market does not fluctuate much.
Recently, the domestic methanol market has been fluctuating, and the demand from downstream lumber mills has continued to be weak. Therefore, the formaldehyde analyst of SunSirs predicts that the recent price of formaldehyde in Shandong will mainly fluctuate downward.
