2018-2019 China C4 Deep-Processing Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


The C4 deep-processing market kept expanding in 2018, boosted by the promotion of GB VI standard. Besides, the operating rates of the existing units were stable. The operating rates of the alkylation units were over 50%, and the profits improved from last year.

In 2018, the international crude oil prices greatly advanced from 2016, pushed up C4 cost and downstream products’ prices. C4 and downstream industries found a balance and developed together as the C4 supply shortage eased.

2018 was also important for state-owned enterprises as they newly built downstream units. Several state-owned enterprises in North China, Northwest China and Northeast China put the alkylation units into production. The sales pattern changed in H1 of 2018 in line with the replenishment for the deep processing. The C4 feedstock supply was expected to tighten in H2 of 2018. How the independent refineries and deep-processing enterprises develop against the competition will become an important topic.

Compared with the high-olefin C4 capacity expansion, high-alkane C4 deep-processing industry developed steadily. The capacity changes of iso-butane dehydrogenation and n-butane isomerization units were limited. N-butane-based MA capacity was an exception which was expected to double these years.

All in all, part of the deep-processing market is promising. What changes will be seen in the feedstock supply pattern in 2018 and next 5 years against the severe competition? Ethanol gasoline is expected to substitute for MTBE. Will the MTBE industry shuffle the cards? SCI will discuss the hot topics in the report.

Based on fundamental data and authoritative data, 2018-2019 China C4 Deep-Processing Market Annual Report will analyze the C4 as well as upstream-downstream industries and deliver forecast in details, providing comprehensive price, profit, supply, demand, etc. and helping to cope with the unpredictable market fluctuations.
