2017-2018 China Paraffin Wax Market Annual Report

Highlights

At the beginning of 2017, China’s paraffin wax market revised its losing streak. The paraffin wax prices kept increasing, bringing surprises to traders. However, as the disappearing of bullish support, China’s paraffin wax market was bogged into a stalemate in Q2, 2017. Main factors that influenced the price change in China’s paraffin wax market were as follows: First, units at refineries underwent maintenance intensively, and the output of paraffin wax decreased by 60kt or so. Market speculations increased in response to the tight supply. Second, influenced by the environmental protection inspection, the downstream demand for paraffin wax shrank in varying degrees. Third, in terms of the export market, foreign traders showed resistance to the great price surge for Chinese-made paraffin wax. Thus, the export volume of paraffin wax hit three-year low. According to the data statistics from customs, the export volume of paraffin wax in 2017 crashed by 30.5% from last year.

From January to July, 2017, China’s paraffin wax price increased by 8% than that in the same period of last year. However, the international situation was turbulent in recent years, and the domestic economy also faced multiple hardships. As the demand for paraffin wax from domestic and overseas market decreased, market speculations flinched. Meanwhile, traders showed poor interest in participating as the profit kept dipping. Downstream demand gave limited support to the paraffin wax market, and market players’ concern towards China’s paraffin wax market rose.
