Analysis review   

The market for salicylic acid rose slightly last week, with little price change. At present, traders report that transactions have improved, their enthusiasm for obtaining goods has increased, merchants have become more optimistic, the load on the market has increased, some manufacturers have been operating at full capacity, the price of raw phenol has risen, cost support is acceptable, and the market has recovered. As of October 23, the quotations of industrial grade salicylic acid are mostly in the range of 10,000-15,000 RMB/ton, and the prices are stable; the quotations of pharmaceutical grade are mostly in the range of 23,000-25,000 RMB/ton, and the prices are stable; the quotations of sublimation grade are mostly in the range of 15,000-20,000 RMB/ton, the prices are stable, and the actual transaction is mainly negotiated.

On the 22nd, the domestic phenol market continued to be weak. There were still traders in the market who were profitable and actively selling goods. The downstream just needed to follow up and actively replenish the goods. The willingness to stock up has yet to be released. Holders were still under pressure to sell their goods. There was a little profitability under the condition of following the market, but there was not much room for profitability under cost pressure. Looking back this year, the phenol market has been stumbling forward in a stalemate. Seeing that Golden September and Silver October are about to pass, market participants have been under pressure.
