2017-2018 China Benzene Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview

2017–2018 China Benzene Market Annual Report


China’s benzene output and apparent consumption continue increasing in 2017. Many sets of reforming units have been put into use at independent refineries. The newly added capacity of styrene, phenol and caprolactam also drive the import and trading volume of benzene to grow. The high price level in early 2017 lays foundation for the high profits in the whole despite weak crude oil price and global economy. The stricter environmental protection inspection in China, especially in Shandong, leads to weaker downstream demand and lower operating rate at downstream industries in 2017. However, the high profitability of downstream industries provides strong support for the benzene price.

Oversupply and OPEC members’ production reduction will be the key factors influencing the international crude oil price in 2018. Overall, the crude oil price is likely to release positive support to the benzene price. New capacity release and elimination of backward capacity both exist in the downstream industries. The downstream demand is expected to keep weak as a result of the strict environmental protection inspection in China. However, the new capacity of downstream derivatives has consumed the newly-added capacity of benzene somewhat. China still has to import some benzene resources to meet the supply shortage in 2018. The arbitrage space between East China and North China will probably be enlarged in line with the oversupply in Shandong.

The benzene capacity will see notable changes in the regional layout. And 2020-2021 is estimated to see a capacity growth peak. The 2017–2018 China Benzene Market Annual Report will capture the development pattern in the current and coming markets of benzene based on accurate data and in-depth analysis.
