Analysis review        

Product: In November, maleic anhydride market fell as a whole. In November, most of the major domestic maleic anhydride factories operated normally and remained stable in the first ten days. In the middle ten days, the price of maleic anhydride was driven down by the price reduction in the main production areas, and in the last ten days, the spot inventory in the main production areas was tight, and the price was increased, which led to the rise of maleic anhydride price. At present, maleic anhydride is in stable operation for the time being, and the spot supply of middlemen and downstream to the aftermarket will return to normal, with general market transactions.

Industrial chain: Crude oil surged in November. The downstream unsaturated resin operates stably, and the terminal demand is general. According to the monitoring of SunSirs, the hydrogenated benzene market rebounded after falling this month, and the monthly increase of hydrogenated benzene market this month was 0.96%. At present, the price in East China is about 5250 RMB/ton, and that in Shandong is about 5100 RMB/ton. The price of n-butane is hovering at a low price, maintaining stable operation temporarily.
