2、 Analysis of influencing factors:
Industry chain: in all upstream aspects of ABS, the styrene market is still depressed in the near future, with little change in transaction. Due to the impact of domestic health events, different traffic regulations have been carried out in different places. Although the vehicle transportation capacity has recovered in the near future, the downstream demand is not high, most of the wait-and-see phenomena exist, and the inventory gradually accumulates to form pressure. In addition, the cost support is weak, although there is a narrow rebound, but Styrene Market in the near future or will still be in the short-term low market;
In the near future, the spot market trading of acrylonitrile related products is also weak, and the price is also weak. The downstream return to work is not good, and acrylonitrile production enterprises say the transportation obstacles are still large. It is expected that the market of acrylonitrile will not improve in the near future;

In recent years, the domestic butadiene market continues to be in a weak situation. Although the logistics and downstream latex factories have been resumed, the raw material inventory of the manufacturers is relatively abundant, and the market lacks the follow-up of new orders. The short-term external offer and the spot supply of the tank farm are abundant. There is no obvious price difference between the north and the south in order to stimulate the circulation of goods.

It is expected that domestic ABS prices will continue to have a correction in the near future.
