2018-2019 China PBR Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


In H1, 2018, the PBR market moved sideways amid tepid trading atmosphere, and the PBR prices fluctuated at lows. In Q2, 2018, the intensive maintenance of PBR units failed to boost the market. As entering the second half of the year, the PBR market improved rapidly. In Q3, 2018, almost half of the PBR units were shut down under cost pressure. At the meantime, the price spread between BR9000 and NR reached above RMB 3,500/mt.

In 2019, there will still be newly added PBR units to be put into operation. How will the fundamentals perform under overcapacity? Will the losses at PBR producers be eased in 2019 when the price of feedstock is higher than that of finished products? How will the PBR producers cope with the pressure from environmental protection and safety policies? With the aid of industrial experts, domestic mainstream suppliers, traders and downstream large-scale manufacturers, this report reviews the PBR market in 2018 and predicts the future PBR market development prospect, based on the data collected by SCI and the authoritative data provided and released by the National Bureau of Statistics of China, General Administration of Customs, etc.
