2017-2018 China EPS Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


In 2017, the China EPS price showed great ups and downs. The upstream styrene price was the determining factor in EPS price, while the influence of downstream demand was limited. The strict environmental protection inspection strongly curbed the operating rates and demand.

As for demand, the EPS capacity expansion rate slowed down. As of Q3, 2017, a 180kt/a unit at Huizhou Xingda Petrochemical and a 60kt/a unit at Shandong Yuhuang Chemical were put into operation. Due to the strict environmental protection inspection and fierce competition, the units at Jiangsu Litian Petrochemical were shut down. Besides, some units at small and medium enterprises were also shut down or ran at low operating rates. Meanwhile, the export volume in H1, 2017 increased.

The financial feature of styrene became stronger, which brought both uncertainties and opportunities to the EPS market. With the strict environmental protection inspection, will the EPS market be more standardized? Will the demand increase? What will be the new path for EPS market in the 13th Five-Year Plan? How will the EPS enterprises be more competitive and maintain the profit. How will the graphite and XPS influence the EPS market? All the answers will be found in the 2017–2018 EPS Market Annual Report.
