Industry chain: Recently, the price of liquid chlorine has been raised, especially in Shandong. It receives the support from the main Liaocheng plant and some chlor-alkali plants in Southwest Shandong. The market of liquid chlorine in Shandong has risen sharply. At present, the turnover in the mainstream areas of Shandong is 500-700 yuan/ton. The demand in other areas is not good and the price is weak. Recently, the price of PVC continues to rise, coupled with the good performance of liquid chlorine market, caustic soda still has a certain profit margin, supporting caustic soda manufacturers to start work to maintain a high level. However, downstream industries such as alumina have limited demand changes and lower willingness to receive goods downstream. Caustic soda prices entangled to maintain a weak operating market.

Industry: According to the price monitoring of business associations, in the 13th week of 2019 (4.1-4.5), the price of chlor-alkali industry rose or fell by two kinds of commodities, fell by two kinds of commodities, and rose or fell by 0 kinds of commodities. The main commodities rising were PVC (2.02%) and calcium carbide (0.80%); the main commodities falling were light soda (-1.36%) and caustic soda (-1.32%). This week’s average rise and fall was 0.03%.

Business analysts believe that: the caustic soda market downstream demand situation is general, the market lacks substantive good support, the speed of enterprise goods slowed down, sales are not ideal. Domestic caustic soda market is good and scarce in fundamentals. Short-term market prices or maintain a weak market, specifically looking at the downstream market demand.

Industry chain: formaldehyde: formaldehyde market continues to operate steadily. The upstream methanol market has risen narrowly, the cost has formed a certain support in the face of the market, the downstream market demand has increased slightly in the near future, the market turnover is better than the earlier period, and the transaction price is stable. Acetic acid: Part of the domestic acetic acid market is exploring. Affected by the parking of alkali and the maintenance of other manufacturers, the overall start-up of domestic acetic acid plants is low, and some recent export orders have been executed one after another, which gives the suppliers confidence to report a rise. However, the domestic overall social stock is still sufficient, and the downstream acetic acid market is difficult under the condition of rational purchasing and no enthusiasm for backup and insufficient demand support. Continued to rise. Dimethyl ether: The price of dimethyl ether rose steadily and moderately, and the trading atmosphere slightly weakened. After the news of restart of Hebi dimethyl ether plant was released, the mentality of the neighbouring traders returned to wait and see, and the enthusiasm of downstream and traders to receive goods was general. Prices in Sichuan and Chongqing are relatively stable. Manufacturers produce in quantity and replenish goods on demand downstream.

3. Future Market Forecast

Business Cooperative Viewpoint: On the positive side, the Spring Festival overhaul plan has been announced one after another, and the domestic methanol plant overhaul is concentrated; in addition, the overhaul in the Middle East, Southeast Asia, the United States and other places has increased; the MTO trial production in Jiutai, Inner Mongolia, on March 20, will significantly reduce the circulation of commodities in Inner Mongolia; after the end of the two sessions, formaldehyde plants in Hebei and Shandong will be restored one after another, and start to upgrade. On the negative side, after spring, methanol continued to rise, downstream conflicting sentiment highlighted, and some terminal cost transmission was not smooth; in particular, the port olefins approached the profit and loss margin; after the northern heating season, the methanol plant from natural gas resumed and the market supply increased. Business methanol analysts expect that, although the downstream of methanol prices continue to rise, but the methanol spot circulation is not much, and spring overhaul has been launched, so the methanol market should not be too pessimistic, under the influence of downstream phased replenishment, the market will stop falling next week, with a small upward trend in some markets.
