This week, the market price of hydrogenated benzene is weak on the whole, with few quotations from manufacturers. This week, the price of downstream procurement is obviously depressed, and most hydrogenated benzene enterprises are selling at reduced prices. The market turnover is general. In terms of fundamentals, the pure benzene market rose at the beginning of the week and held steady at the weekend. At the beginning of this week, the market mentality of pure benzene was boosted by the rise of both crude oil and styrene, and the price of pure benzene followed the rise. Sinopec raised the listing price by 100 yuan / ton, which again boosted the market mentality and led to the rise of local refining enterprises. The overall market trading is relatively active. At the weekend, with the decline of crude oil prices, the market atmosphere was affected to a certain extent, and the price of pure benzene remained temporarily stable. In terms of inventory, the inventory of pure benzene in East China port this week increased by 9400 tons to 59600 tons compared with last week, and the overall performance of the port is dominated by accumulation. In terms of downstream demand, styrene rose significantly this week, which supported the pure benzene market to a certain extent. In general, the supply of pure benzene is still relatively loose at present. In terms of demand, as the double festival approaches, the market is expected to see a certain increase in demand. The fundamentals of pure benzene are still weak as a whole, so it is expected that the price will be weak in the short term. In the future, we need to continue to pay attention to the impact of crude oil and external price trends, pure benzene port inventory and downstream operation on prices.
