II. Analysis of Influencing Factors

Product: This week, the domestic butadiene market has been boosting strongly. Last weekend, the high price of the external market boosted the offer. The increase of Huajin Pipeline Transport in North China led to the decrease of export. In addition, the high price of the external market sustained the increase of Sinopec’s supply price, and the market rose rapidly. During the week, due to the parking downstream of Qixiang and the increase of export in Fushun, the spot supply in North China was abundant, but the spot supply in East China was scarce. Some high-priced goods in North China were influxed and supplemented, and the spot market was high. Although the downstream synthetic rubber market has limited follow-up, and some just need high-price inquiry intention is not high, but there is no low-price supply in the market, some just need passive high-price replenishment. In terms of price, the delivery price of high-grade products in Shandong is 10700 yuan/ton, and the quotation in East China refers to 11000 yuan/ton, which is up 400-500 yuan/ton annually.

3. Future Market Forecast

On the positive side, the external market is high, domestic manufacturers and tank yard inventory is low, and East China spot is partial. On the short side, the downstream rubber market has limited follow-up, high-price transactions are difficult to release, synthetic rubber profit pressure, overall load is expected to decline. Short-term sustained high prices boost the enthusiasm of downstream warehouse replenishment. Domestic and foreign manufacturers have good shipments and shortage of spot resources in East China. Although the current high prices are difficult to sustain volume trading, and the downstream synthetic rubber market is not strong enough to keep pace with the rise, in the short term, domestic supply still has some support, and manufacturers have low inventories to supply it. Price has obvious support, the market has no low-price supply replenishment expectations, business community butadiene analysts expect that next week the domestic butadiene market high finishing, it is recommended to pay attention to manufacturers’prices and volume.
