Market outlook

The Propylene Analyst of SunSirs believes that, overall, the propylene market has been picking up recently, and the crude oil market has bottomed out due to multiple positive news. And the recent production and inventory of propylene plants are relatively low. Now that crude oil and polypropylene futures have risen, making downstream procurement active. Therefore, although the downstream products have all declined slightly, it is expected that the price of propylene market may still rise in the near future, and the downstream products may increase slightly in the later period.
