Dimethyl carbonate Market in the second half of the year

wallpapers Industry 2020-12-09
Although the acceptance ex factory price of dimethyl carbonate (DMC) of Shandong factory reached 4200-4300 yuan (ton price, the same below) on Friday (7.17), which was more than 100 yuan higher than that at the end of last month, and the market went out of the overall moderate upward trend. However, it is generally believed by industry insiders that due to multiple adverse factors such as insufficient downstream rigid demand, continuous rising raw materials, and overall market shock of propylene glycol, the by-product, in the second half of this year DMC market is difficult to show the dawn.

and

according to Zhang Yuhan, general manager of Shaanxi Yulin Yunhua Green Energy Co., Ltd., the domestic DMC market experienced a sharp rise and a fall from May to June. After the "May Day" festival, with the continuous rise of propylene oxide and the tight supply of DMC factory, the price went up all the way. The manufacturer controlled the low price, received the order at high price, reduced the low price in the market, and continued to increase the focus of negotiation. The ex factory price of DMC in Shandong once rose to 4400 yuan. However, with the resumption of some production and maintenance devices, the problem of tight supply of goods in the market has been solved slowly, and the price has fallen again and hovered at a low level.

and

by-product propylene glycol market also experienced a high drop. Jia Fenglei, deputy general manager of Shandong Shida Shenghua Chemical Co., Ltd., said that in May this year, the domestic PG market as a whole showed shock and fell back. After returning from the "May Day" holiday, propylene glycol producers all made tentative increases to varying degrees, with the range of 100 yuan.

and

, however, according to the traders in Guangzhou, the downstream factories purchase propylene glycol as needed, and the acceptance of high prices is not high, and the transactions in various markets are extremely unsatisfactory. In order to prevent stock overstocking, traders purchase less than the previous period, reduce inventory as much as possible to reduce the occupation of funds. Factory continued to rise, lack of motivation, prices fell back. At present, the operating rate of the downstream unsaturated resin plant has decreased from 50% to about 40% now, and the demand for propylene glycol has decreased, and there is no increase expected in the future.

and

in this regard, the industry said to rationally face the difficulties. Jia Fenglei believes that this year's DMC market situation can be said to be rare in history, and the competition is also the most tragic. More wisdom is needed to tide over the difficulties. In the face of such a bleak market, the main domestic DMC manufacturers have their own ideas and practices. Some enterprises are to survive, for the purpose of survival. Some enterprises, because of their own financial situation problems, as long as there is cash flow on the line. It is such enterprises that do not play cards according to the Convention, and the market will be in chaos. It's hard to coordinate. Qu qianghao, chairman and general manager of

and

Tangshan Haoyu Technology Development Co., Ltd., said that although the current domestic DMC price is at a historical low. However, from the beginning of the year to the present, the DMC market is relatively stable, and there is no big ups and downs. The market price of propylene glycol changes with the price of ethylene oxide. However, the main DMC production enterprises are uneven. The enterprises with good production, operation and management level are in the state of capital preservation or a little profit, while the enterprises with poor production, operation and management are always in the state of loss. Due to the market downturn for a long time, Shandong Depu Chemical Technology Co., Ltd. and Anhui Tongling Jintai Industrial Co., Ltd. carried out timely parking, maintenance and necessary technical transformation and upgrading.

and

Qu qianghao said that at present, the 60000 T / a DMC of Zhejiang Ningbo zhetiefeng Chemical Co., Ltd. has opened up the whole process, all the units have been put into production, the production capacity of polycarbonate has basically reached the standard, and the product quality is also very good. The implementation of new equipment, new process and energy saving integrated process can greatly reduce the production cost and improve the market competitiveness.
