2017-2018 China Vinyl Acetate Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


In 2017, China’s vinyl acetate (VAC) prices fluctuated continually. Given the support from external markets and global intensive turnarounds, China’s VAC prices changed obviously in 2017. Therein, the export volume of VAC crashed, and that in H1, 2017 dropped by 41.08% from the same period of last year. However, the export volume of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) in H1, 2017 climbed up by 27.48% from last year. As the EVA unit at Jiangsu Sailboat Petrochemical was put into operation, the direct supply of ethylene-based VAC surged, and the market proportion of calcium carbide-based VAC kept rising.

The capacity of VAC is highly centralized, and producers postpone expanding capacity temporarily. However, the newly-added capacity from downstream EVA industry will be surging in the future three years, and the domestic supply of ethylene-based VAC will be tighter. Will there be a new balance between the supply and demand of ethylene-based VAC? The demand for calcium carbide-based VAC grows gradually, giving support to the improvement of calcium carbide-based VAC quality. Export is the leading way to alleviate the saturation pressure in domestic market. With more rigid demand for calcium carbide-based VAC, will the import volume of VAC increase in 2018? The proportion of direct VAC supply enhances, so will it bring new support to China’s VAC market?
