Price trend

According to data from SunSirs’ bulk list, the domestic propylene (Shandong) market was slowly rising this week. At the beginning of the week, the price was low at 8,423 RMB/ton, and it was the high price at 8,517 RMB/ton at the weekend, with a weekly increase of 1.11%.

Analysis review

According to the monitoring data of SunSirs, affected by the upstream and downstream effects, the price of propylene rose repeatedly in the second half of February and was at a multi-year high. The price of propylene remained stable at the end of February and early March. On the 4th, the price of propylene began to decline, and on the 8th, the price generally rebounded. The price rose by 150-250 RMB/ton in two days. After that, the price generally stabilized. On the 12th, the price rose again by about 50 RMB/ton, and the market transaction was 8,450-8,650 RMB/ton. Between RMB/ton, the mainstream price was about 8,500 RMB/ton. The impact of low temperature in the United States still exists, and production capacity is generally restored; the impact of propylene in Japan has decreased, and production capacity has recovered slightly.

It is reported that OPEC+ may extend production cuts, and the UAV attack on the port of Saudi oil town on the evening of the 7th did not cause significant damage to the facilities. Therefore, the crude oil market's upward trend faded. Crude oil prices rose again on March 11, and the cost support for propylene increased.
