In terms of raw materials: it can be seen from the above figure that the market demand for bisphenol A is low and the market is weak this month. The raw material phenol/acetone rose, and the decline in the factory price of bisphenol A plant tightened under the support of cost. However, the demand side is hard to be stimulated by good news. It is expected that BPA will have a high probability of fluctuation around the cost. In the later stage, it will continue to pay attention to the raw material market and downstream demand information.

Supply: In February, the total PC load in China was more than 70%, the operating rate was the highest in recent years, and the pressure at the supply side was too high. At the same time, there was news of new devices being put into operation recently. The flow of domestic goods is sluggish, and the pressure on the supply side is also increased.


In terms of demand: In February, the downstream of PC just needed to maintain production, and the operators had a heavy wait-and-see attitude. At present, the resumption of work of terminal enterprises is slow, and there is pre-holiday inventory that needs to be digested, resulting in weak intra-field trading. The traders’ mentality is weak, and the operation is biased to yield profits and take orders.

It is expected that the PC market will continue to weaken due to the impact of supply and demand contradiction in the near future.
