2018-2019 China PS Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


In 2018, driven by the fluctuations in styrene prices, the PS market fluctuated frequently. With the issue of anti-dumping policy, China’s styrene market was volatile. The co-movement between PS market and styrene market strengthened. The PS prices were almost in line with styrene prices. Stimulated by the historic low inventory in Q2, the styrene prices surged. Therefore, the PS prices increased as well.
Due to the strong co-movement with styrene prices and tepid demand from end producers, the PS producers suffered cost and sales pressure. However, the PS production process is relatively simple. Adjusting production plans flexibly helps the PS producers avoid or cut risks brought by high cost. Because the newly added capacity is limited in recent years, the capacity utilization and output of PS have improved. The PS development in future attracts extensive attention in the industry.

Based on the data of 10-year experience including PS prices, supply, demand, and relative products and the communication with senior experts, suppliers, traders, and large producers, 2018-2019 China PS Market Annual Report SCI gives a detailed review about China’s PS market. For example, SCI will analyze the changes of market supply and demand, market price tendency, downstream demand and future development, and make a forecast on the variation of industrial tendency in the next five years. 2018-2019 China PS Market Annual Report provides a theoretical basis for the industry to grasp the pulse of the industry and avoid the risks of operating.
