2018-2019 China EPDM Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


In 2018, various unforeseeable factors such as the Sino-U.S. trade war, the great depreciation of RMB and the upsurge in feedstock prices obviously lifted China’s ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) market in H2, 2018. EPDM market prices first decreased and then rallied in 2018. Therein, from January to June 2018, EPDM market prices were stable-to-dropping; since July 2018, EPDM market prices had been going up due to various bullish factors; up to the beginning of August, market prices of most grades closed at high prices which were higher from early 2018. There are newly-added EPDM units being put into production in Q1 and Q4, 2018 on a global basis. The Newly-added capacity is expected to be 300kt/a.

In 2019, supply-demand fundamentals and costs will exert relatively great influence on China’s EPDM market. On the one hand, prices of ethylene and propylene will fluctuate within a narrow range. The depreciation of RMB may continue to exist, but the range of the devaluation of RMB may be smaller than that in H2 2018. Besides, RMB costs of U.S.-origin resources are likely to increase under Sino-U.S. trade friction. On the other hand, the end demand for EPDM may be stable-to-rising. Besides, costs will give support to EPDM market, and EPDM units which are put into production in early stage may gradually operate normally. Therefore, the supply of EPDM will increase. But the increase in EPDM supply may exert slight influence on the decrease in EPDM prices.
