2018-2019 China VAC Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


In 2018, it is conservatively estimated that China’s VAC average prices will increase by over 30% from last year. In addition to the strong support from cost side, unit maintenance and domestic tight supply caused by intensive export were the key factors to boost VAC prices. In H1, 2018, the export volume of VAC rose by 9.94% Y-O-Y, while the output of VAC declined by 6.37% Y-O-Y. Curbed by the high cost and other factors, many downstream enterprises carried out “Baojia” policy (It means that consumers buy at posted prices, and discounts will be made at the end of the month when settlement prices are issued. It indicates a bearish market trend.), and the rigid demand for VAC weakened.

The capacity is highly concentrated in VAC industry, but the structural overcapacity exists. Many sets of EVA units are scheduled to be put into operation in 2019, which will increase the demand for ethylene-based VAC substantially. However, the capacity of ethylene-based VAC is only 480 kt/a in China, and some products are mainly for self-use. Thus, the supply cannot satisfy the rapidly increasing demand. Will the newly added capacity of ethylene-based VAC be built in the future? Will the photovoltaic policy in EVA industry change the VAC demand in Asia and impact China’s VAC export market? Will glacial acetic acid prices remain at highs and impose cost pressure on VAC producers?
