2、 Cause analysis

 

Product reason: at present, the production of chloroform enterprises in Shandong Province remains normal, the market spot supply is relatively sufficient, and the downstream market and traders are short of rigid demand, which leads to the increasing inventory pressure of enterprises, and the situation that the supply exceeds the demand in the industry is gradually revealed.

3、 Future forecast

 

According to the propylene analyst of the chemical branch of the business society, the crude oil market has repeatedly been low due to the impact of the international crude oil market game recently. As the production and inventory of propylene are low before, the decline in the early stage is not significant, and the trend of follow-up in the later stage is also obvious. At present, propylene inventory is not much, and the operating rate is not high, so the manufacturer’s delivery pressure is small. However, in early April, it is expected that some enterprises will start construction one after another, and the downstream butanol and octanol will decline significantly. Although isopropanol is still rising, it is hard to support alone. It is expected that the price of propylene will start to stabilize in recent days, and may decline in the later period.

In March, some nylon enterprises were still in order production state because of the raw materials still in place years ago, the factory operation rate was low, the purchase intention was not strong, and the inventory cost was high to support the quotation.
