The price of Brent crude oil futures market fell, and the settlement price of the main contract was reported at 44.5 US dollars per barrel, a decrease of 0.49 US dollars. The decline in oil prices was mainly due to the selling in New York precious metals futures and the decline in crude oil prices, which could not support the cost of ethylene, and the external market for ethylene fell.

The domestic styrene market has fallen. This week, the arrival of styrene is concentrated, and the terminal inventory has increased. The supply is relatively sufficient, and the overall supply is still in excess. It is expected that the market will continue to fall in recent days, and it cannot form cost support for ethylene.

Market outlook

The ethylene analyst of SunSirs believes that: in terms of crude oil: the selling of gold and other precious metal futures brings negative risks, and oil prices continue to decline. Therefore, the data analyst of SunSirs predicts that the price of ethylene will fall mainly in the future.
