2017-2018 China NBA Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


In 2017, international crude oil price fluctuated upwards, and China’s economy developed steadily. Catching this opportunity, China’s N-butyl alcohol (NBA) market made a comeback after years of sluggish. In spite of the short-term pilot production, the capacity of Phase IIINBA units at Luxi Chemical was not released effectively. Meanwhile, there were no other newly-added NBA units in 2017. Meanwhile, more NBA units were switched to produce 2-Ethylhexanol (2-EH). Thus, the overall NBA operating rate stayed at a low level, and the drop in supply supported the market strongly. Owing to unit overhaul or shutdown, the market price of the major downstream product butyl acrylate mounted up actively, supporting the demand for NBA. The profit at NBA plants increased steadily in the first half of 2017, and it once excessed RMB 2,000/mt in the third quarter, which was a three-year high.

In 2018, market participants will continue focusing on the units. Can the three NBA units at Luxi Chemical run at the same time? With the units of CNOOC Shell to be put into production, the NBA supply in South China will not have to rely on resources from other areas entirely. At that time, how will the NBA price spread between North and South China change? In 2018, will the NBA downstream industries expand capacity? And will the newly-added NBA capacity be digested? The strict environmental protection supervision in 2017 impacted limitedly on NBA units, but the effects on downstream units were comparatively obvious. How will the environmental protection policy affect NBA market in 2018? Will the units transferred to 2-EH production return to NBA production?
