2017-2018 China MEK Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


MEK profits continued to be high in 2017. Hunan Zhongchuang Chemical and Hunan Ruiyuan Petrochemical initiated to produce MEK within this year, with newly-added capacity of 150kt/a totally. Meanwhile, the newly-added unit of 80kt/a at CNOOC Taizhou Petrochemical was likely to be put into operation. Besides, compared with other solvent products, there was still a better performance for MEK in its output, sales, prices and profits, in spite of security production check affecting the production of downstream industries. In addition, the robust momentum was still embodied in China’s MEK export market. MEK resources were not only exported to South Korea, and the export volume to Southeast Asia also increased greatly. The Europe market and the U.S. market also became the export destinations.

Nothing is more challengeable than the increasing capacities for China’s MEK market in the future. Hunan Ruiyuan Petrochemical, Hunan Zhongchuang Chemical and CNOOC Taizhou Petrochemical have released a total capacity of 230kt/a into the market, up nearly 50% Y-O-Y. Demand for China’s MEK market will slow down in the coming years, thus, export will be an effective mean to relieve the overcapacity in China’s MEK industry. With the manufacturing industry springing up in Southeast Asia and India, an increasing number of end products, such as adhesive and coating, etc., will use more feedstock MEK, thus, exported volumes of China’s MEK are expected to enlarge in these regions. China’s supply-demand structure will see notable changes in next few years. Moreover, with China’s MEK market shares amplifying in global market, China will hold the pricing power for the MEK market gradually.

Confronted with the overcapacity, China’s MEK market still remain robust. Via full and accurate data, 2017–2018 China MEK Market Annual Report will elaborate influencing factors in the MEK market from various perspectives. About 70% of the data used in the report are SCI’s first hand data, which have great reference value and are widely-accepted by market players. Market Analysis will reflect the actual study results, and forecast viewpoints will give distinct directions to players.
