Market outlook

The propylene analyst of SunSirs believes that: on the whole, the inventory of current propylene manufacturers is within the controllable range, the price of crude oil has been lowered, the overall profitability of downstream products is good, the operating rate is high, and there is a pre-holiday replenishment demand. There is a certain degree of support. There are more positive factors than negative factors. However, the propylene price is now at the top position and the upward trend is difficult. Therefore, it is expected that the propylene price may fluctuate and stabilize in the near future.
