Annual Report Overview

2017–2018 China ABS Market Annual Report


In 2017, the ABS industry has been in excellent form. The pace of China’s ABS capacity expansion had slowed down since 2014. Yet the demand went up steadily. Accordingly, the utilization of ABS units continued to rise. The ABS output, operating rate and gross profit margin at producers all set new high in the industry. It is worth mentioning that both the ABS output and operating rate remained high in 2017 despite the influences from environmental protection supervision and maintenance. The operating rates in some months were over 90%. High output and sales volume made ABS become the star product in the general purpose plastics market.

The international crude oil price and upstream feedstock prices fluctuated at lows in most time in 2017, but the ABS price remained high supported by the supply-demand fundamentals. ABS producers have strong ability to control the ex-works prices. In consequence, many producers planned to put new units into use. Can ABS price remain high in the future? Can ABS profit remain high under the sluggish commodity market atmosphere? How does ABS industry break through the technical barrier and grasp the new development opportunity during the 13th five-year plan? Please pay attention to the professional presentation in the 2017–2018 China ABS Market Annual Report.
