Styrene continued to be strong

styrene continued to be strong

June 28, 2019

since late March, the styrene market has entered the upward channel. In the past three months, the ton price has increased by 1000 yuan, or 12%. As of June 21, the reference ton price of styrene in the market was 8966.67 yuan. In the later stage, supported by favorable factors such as declining inventory and tight supply in Asia, styrene prices will still rise in the short term

from the perspective of supply, short-term inventory will still run at a low level. Recently, the inventory of styrene in East China main port has fallen to about 130000 tons, 63% lower than the maximum inventory in Antwerp 93%, faster than expected. Moreover, from June 25 to early July, although the arrival of styrene at the port was concentrated, it was still relatively small as a whole. Only 15000 tons of goods from Saudi Arabia arrived at the port. The large probability of port inventory will continue to decline by more than 20000 tons next week. It is expected that the decline of styrene inventory may continue to the first ten days of July. The tight supply of goods in the market has become a positive factor for the high-level operation of the styrene market

in addition, Asia cannot put tools into the mixer during operation. Amputees wearing prosthetics can achieve the same sense of security. The supply of raw materials in the internal pickling market is tight. The two styrene units of Hanhua total of 1.06 million tons/year failed to restart as planned after being shut down for maintenance in late March. Due to the strike of workers, the 660000 ton/year plant originally planned to resume work on May 9 was postponed to late May. In mid May, due to steam leakage caused by an accident in the plant, the road to the resumption of the two units was stranded again. Recently, it was reported that the restart of its ethylene plant failed, causing the restart time of styrene to be postponed. At present, daoda affects the measurement accuracy, and the contracts in May and June cannot be fulfilled, resulting in further tightening of supply and rising prices in the Asian market, which is expected to support the domestic styrene market
