According to statistics, the price trend of phthalic anhydride in China is stable for the time being. As of February 20, the price of phthalic anhydride by o-phthalic method is 5750 yuan / ton. Recently, the price of phthalic anhydride in China has stopped falling and stabilized, the demand of plasticizer industry has improved, and the market price trend of phthalic anhydride is stable for the time being.
In the near future, the price trend of domestic phthalic anhydride market is temporarily stable. Affected by the epidemic situation, the transportation of chemicals is limited, and some phthalic anhydride manufacturers are still in stock. However, with the gradual resumption of downstream enterprises, the shipment situation of phthalic anhydride manufacturers has recovered, and the price trend of phthalic anhydride market is stable. The market price of phthalic anhydride and phthalic anhydride in East China is temporarily stable, the downstream factories are back to work orderly, and the inventory pressure of the factories has decreased, but the high-end transactions are blocked, and the market price trend of phthalic anhydride is volatile. In East China, the main flow of negotiation of neighboring method source is 5500-6000 yuan / ton, and that of naphthalene method source is 5400-5700 yuan / ton; in North China, the main quotation of phthalic anhydride market is 5400-5800 yuan / ton, the price trend of most manufacturers in the field is stable temporarily, and the downstream construction is improved, but the main purchase is on demand, with a strong wait-and-see mentality. The domestic phthalic anhydride plant is under normal operation, and the spot supply of phthalic anhydride in the field is normal, Phthalic anhydride market is mainly stable.
In the near future, on February 20, the execution price of domestic phthalic anhydride upstream products was 5800 yuan / ton. The import price of phthalic anhydride in the port area fell and the price fell. In the near future, the price of phthalic acid in the port fell and the price of phthalic acid in the external market fell. The actual transaction price was subject to negotiation and detailed discussion. Due to the stable trend of upstream raw material phthalic acid price, the market price of phthalic anhydride was temporarily stable.
In the downstream, the price of DOP raw material isooctanol decreased, the cost of DOP raw material decreased, DOP enterprises operated at low load, during the anti epidemic period, logistics was limited, transportation was difficult, and DOP manufacturers’ inventory increased. The price of DOP fell, the purchasing enthusiasm of customers was poor, the price of downstream PVC fell, and the equipment of PVC enterprises started at a low level. The main quotation in DOP market is about 7100-7500 yuan / ton, a small amount of market plasticizer is traded, the low price trend in the downstream is fluctuating, and the upstream ox price remains fluctuating. It is expected that the market price of phthalic anhydride will maintain fluctuating trend in the later period.
