2017-2018 China Crude Naphthalene Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


China’s crude naphthalene capacity reached around 2,180kt/a in 2017. Some units were lying idle over a long period. The effective capacity was 1,980kt/a, and operating rate averages at 63% within the year. Up to July 2017, the average price of crude naphthalene in Shandong Province was RMB 3,450/mt, down 9% compared with beginning of the year. The continuous price downtrend was caused by oversupply. As for profit, undergoing a continuous loss during 2014–2015 and fluctuating at lows in 2016, deep process market, compared with last few years, has a remarkable turnaround as entering 2017. From January to July 2017, profit of deep process manufacturers in East China area is around RMB 225/mt, surging by 370%.

It is remarkable that the capacity of major downstream product, naphthalene-based phthalic anhydride, remains a growth tendency despite that crude naphthalene market price fluctuating downwards within the year. Therefore, SCI still holds an optimistic point of view on the crude naphthalene market. Moreover, in recent years tight supply and increasing price has become normal for the feedstock coal tar market. It is estimated that price of coal tar will remain high which will place high cost pressure on crude naphthalene market. In terms of demand, fundamentals of supply and demand for crude naphthalene will appear loose for the whole year and tight in different stages, which is not conducive to a sharp price increase. In terms of capacity, there is no plan to increase currently. The effective capacity is estimated to reach 12,870kt, and the output will be around 1,280kt and average operating rate would be around 65%. It is estimated that highest point of crude naphthalene market will be RMB 4,500/mt, and there is a high possibility that it will appear in Q4 of 2018.

From Part 3, the report will be represented in form of ‘whole to part’ to demonstrate the development of crude naphthalene market comprehensively, meticulously and thoroughly.
