Annual Report Overview

2017-2018 China PVC Market Annual Report


In 2017, the supply and demand of China’s PVC market was largely balanced. Safety inspections and environmental protection inspections ran throughout the year, curbing some producers’ production. So the overall supply pressure of PVC was not large this year. The PVC were in short supply from Q2, 2017, and the market inventory in East China and South China continued to decrease. The PVC prices surged from H2 of April. By the end of mid-September, the SG-5 prices in East China rose to RMB 7,750/mt, up 39.9% from the yearly low. The profits of PVC producers have increased substantially. As of mid-August, the profits at PVC producers were as high as RMB 1,500/mt.

With the sharp increase in profits at PVC producers, their production enthusiasm was improved. More newly-added capacity was planned to be put into use. According to statistics, over 1,500kt/a capacity was planned to be put into use from H2, 2017 to 2018. Meanwhile, the operating rates of some producers with poor management and narrow source channels will still be influenced by the more stringent safety inspections and environmental protection inspections. It is predicted that the overall competitiveness of PVC producers will be more intense in 2018. The process of urbanization in China is still advancing. So, the demand for PVC products will increase steadily later. Additionally, after the prohibition of importing waste plastic was implemented, would the demand for virgin PVC be supported?

This report is based on the raw data of 13 years of investigation from SCI, the authoritative data published by National Bureau of Statistics, General Administration of Customs, National Development and Reform Commission and etc., and the industry data from domestic major suppliers, traders and downstream factories. Senior industry experts will make detailed review of China’s PVC market in 2017 and analyze the changes in market supply and demand, price trend and import & export data.
