Good news limited, butadiene market slightly collated

1、 Price trend

 

The domestic butadiene market was slightly sorted out. According to the monitoring price of the business agency, the domestic butadiene market price at the beginning of the week was 4295 yuan / ton, while the domestic butadiene market price at the end of the week was 4345 yuan / ton, up 1.16% in the week. The price rose 22.95% month on month and 45.88% year-on-year.

 

2、 Analysis of influencing factors

 

Products: in this cycle, the domestic butadiene market is weak in consolidation, and the supplier price adjustment is limited, which is difficult to form a sustained support for the market. The downstream raw material inventory is relatively abundant, and the poor transaction brings certain drag to the market. During the week, both Puyang Bluestar and Inner Mongolia Jiutai units were temporarily shut down for maintenance. The supply side continued to shrink at the beginning of this week, which brought a certain boost to the market atmosphere. However, Sinopec’s price adjustment policy has not been implemented yet. The supply in the circulation link of the northern market is relatively abundant. Under the drag of downstream demand, the market is weak. The atmosphere in East China is weak. The low price transaction of some goods sources drags down the market focus, and there is no lack of spot circulation to the northern market in the week, which results in the poor transaction of slightly high price goods sources in Northeast China and the overall drag market atmosphere.

In terms of enterprises, Puyang Bluestar’s 50000t / a butadiene plant was shut down for maintenance on May 10, and the restart time has not been determined yet; Jiutai’s 70000t / a butadiene plant in Inner Mongolia was shut down for maintenance on May 12 in the evening, with an estimated duration of 5-7 days; Nanjing Chengzhi’s 100000 t / a butadiene plant was shut down for maintenance on April 7, with a planned restart time of about May 16; some domestic plants were shut down intensively As a result, the overall operating rate of butadiene industry continued to decline to less than 60%.

 

In terms of industrial chain: SBR: in this cycle, the mainstream factory price of domestic SBR sales companies rose by a narrow margin, with an increase of 100 yuan / ton. Some sales companies did not adjust the price of oil and rubber. The start-up rate of styrene butadiene plant was slightly increased to around 60.20% (of which, the start-up rate of emulsion polymerized styrene butadiene plant was around 60%); Qilu, Yangzi, Jihua, Fushun, Lanhua, Weitai, Shenhua and Bridgestone all operated normally; in addition, Tianjin Lugang, Hangzhou Yibang and Fuxiang chemical styrene butadiene rubber plant continued to stop.

 

Cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber: this week, the factory price of high cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber increased by a narrow range. The operation rate of domestic high cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber plant continued to rise to around 60.9%, and that of the ChuanHua cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber plant continued to rise to full load operation after restart. The operation of other mainstream cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber plants was stable, and the operation rate of the overall high cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber industry continued to rise compared with the previous cycle. However, in the later period, the operation rate of Maoming cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber plant was affected by the shutdown

 

3、 Future forecast

 

On the positive side, Wanda and Yuhuang raw materials need to be purchased, the overall operating rate of butadiene in China continues to decline, and the operating rate of downstream industries remains relatively high. On the negative side, the tire, automobile and other terminal industries are still weak. Iranian and European ships are expected to arrive in Hong Kong. There is abundant supply in circulation, high price transactions are not smooth, and some suppliers in the north have accumulated inventory. Butadiene analysts of the business agency predict that the domestic butadiene market will be weak next week, and there is no lack of expectation for a small decline in prices. It is suggested to pay attention to the latest prices and transaction guidelines of the internal and external market.

At the beginning of the month, the price of raw materials fell, and the price of phosphoric acid market fell. At the same time, due to the impact of foreign public health events, the situation of phosphoric acid export was not good, and domestic demand was not large. Most enterprises went with the market, and the focus of transaction shifted down. Enterprises with high prices lowered their prices according to their own situation, which was conducive to shipment. At the end of the month, due to the rise of yellow phosphorus at the end of raw materials, the price of phosphoric acid in duodi rose with the market, while some enterprises remained stable for a while.

However, the actual volume of transactions is not large, and it is expected that the price of yellow phosphorus will still run at a high level in the short term. In April, the domestic phosphate rock market as a whole remained low and stable, and the market was mostly in a state of consolidation. New orders were generally traded in the market, and the on-site construction continued to improve slowly. The overall operation of domestic phosphate ore market has basically recovered as before. Recently, the inquiry of downstream products of phosphate ore has not been significantly improved, and the overall market trend is weak.

(Note: cycle refers to 2011-09-01 to now)

 

povidone Iodine

2、 Analysis of influencing factors

 

Product: in April, with the control of public health events in China, the resumption of work in various regions accelerated significantly. However, the overall sales situation of coal mines in Yulin area is general, the sales of lump coal is good, and the price on the mine is stable for the time being; the overall sales of coal market in Jinmeng area has no obvious change, and the accumulation situation of some mining areas continues. However, the low load operation of the coal terminal results in the poor delivery of the whole coal mine and the high inventory operation, and the coal price continues to decline.

 

Industry chain: the trend of downstream power plants is not optimistic. Downstream power plants still hold a wait-and-see attitude towards resources with low prices. The transaction is weak, and the market expectation is pessimistic. According to the data, on April 30, 2020, the total inventory of power coal storage of six coastal power plants was 16.028 million tons, the daily consumption was 53880 tons, and the available days were 29.75 days. At present, the situation of weak downstream demand still remains unchanged. Traders have a strong wait-and-see attitude, while port inventory remains high.

 

Macro: coal import increased in the first quarter, and trading prices fell. In March, 27.83 million tons of coal were imported, up 18.5% year on year; in the first quarter, 95.78 million tons of coal were imported, up 28.4% year on year. In addition, the epidemic spread globally, and many countries began to seal up their countries and ports, resulting in increased downward pressure on the economy. Many export processing enterprises in the southeast coast were unable to fully resume production due to lack of orders, resulting in reduced power consumption. In the first half of April, coal procurement in the lower reaches continued to be sluggish, power plants mainly went to storage, and coal prices continued to fall.

 

3、 Future forecast

 

Business analysts believe: the current is a traditional coal off-season, coal market supply is greater than demand, coal prices fall under pressure. Affected by the outbreak of overseas epidemic and the slow start of coal demand in domestic coastal areas and other factors, the market supply and demand is unbalanced, and the pressure of coal price decline is increasing. At present, there are few coal pallets, so the market negotiation atmosphere is flat and the market continues to be weak. However, with the introduction of the national policy of stabilizing the market and coal price, as well as the loss management of some coal enterprises, the market space is narrowed, and the possibility of continuing to decline sharply is relatively small. It is comprehensively expected that the power coal will be mainly operated in the later period or in a small scale, depending on the downstream market demand.

Due to the small amount of arrivals, the inventory fell back.

 

Thiourea

In terms of shipment, this week, the main port of Zhangjiagang delivered about 6200 tons per day, and Taicang delivered about 200000 tons per day to the two warehouses. Delivery is still not optimistic.

In terms of units, CNOOC shell’s 480000 ton / a ethylene glycol unit was restarted on April 23; BASF Yangzi’s 340000 ton / a ethylene glycol unit will be overhauled on April 30.

 

3、 Analysis and prediction

 

On Monday, U.S. crude oil futures fell to an unprecedented negative. Affected by this, glycol futures and spot prices have also declined. Since then, with the increase of crude oil price and the decrease of inventory, the price of glycol has also recovered.

 

At present, as the overseas epidemic has not been controlled, the terminal export is greatly restricted. Although there is a certain decline in inventory due to the reduction of arrival, the inventory is still at a high level relative to the sluggish delivery. The demand side is weak. In the case of oil price correction, there is little room for glycol to fall, but the rising trend is not expected to be clear in a short time.

For the downstream, although domestic demand has picked up, compared with the sharp drop in the price of crude oil, the price of the downstream products of o-benzene is still on a downward trend; the growth momentum of o-benzene is insufficient and the downward pressure is large. Generally speaking, crude oil price fell, raw material price of o-benzene fell, and o-benzene fell under great pressure; domestic demand gradually picked up, but global demand fell significantly, overall downstream of o-benzene was still weak, phthalic anhydride price fell, o-benzene market was positive and limited, and there was a big negative. It is expected that o-benzene market in the future will fall under great pressure.
