Downstream demand light drags on NBR

Affected by environmental factors and Spring Festival factors, some factories in North China and other places were not willing to prepare goods before the festival. The overall transaction atmosphere was weak, and the nitrile market was in a weak state. At present, the whole situation is still light.

SunSirs analysts believe that on one hand, the price of raw material butadiene is low, on the other hand, the demand for NBR is insufficient, and it is expected that the price of NBR will continue to be weak in the later stage.
