2、 Analysis of influencing factors


Products: affected by tight supply, the price of maleic anhydride in the main production areas continued to rise, while other regions followed. Some enterprises were reluctant to sell solid anhydride, which led to the aggravation of supply tension in the industry, the purchasing sentiment in the downstream market rebounded, and the price support for maleic anhydride was fair.


Sulfamic acid 

Industrial chain: the hydrobenzene market is affected by the replenishment of traders, and the price has stopped falling and stabilized. However, in the long run, the price of raw materials continues to fall, which does not support the price of hydrobenzene, and the downstream market just needs to be flat; the downstream unsaturated resin market is in a horizontal direction, with strong market wait-and-see sentiment, and with maleic anhydride, the cost pressure is becoming increasingly obvious.
