Demand side: Last week (11.20-11.27), tire production started with a slight increase in all steel tires, providing some support for rubber. But currently, the demand for tires is gradually entering the off-season at the end of the year, and tire companies are gradually accumulating inventory. The expectation of tire production in the later stage will decrease, and the impact on rubber is biased. It is understood that as of late November 2023, the operating load of all steel tires in rubber tire enterprises in Shandong region was 640%; The operating load of semi steel tires in domestic rubber tire enterprises is 7.8%.
Market forecast: SunSirs analysts believe that the cost of SBR will continue to support, but downstream production is expected to decline in the later stage, coupled with the overall loose supply of SBR in the later stage, it is expected that the price of SBR will be weak and consolidate in the later stage.
