Annual Report Overview


In 2021, China’s butane prices went up, both n-butane and iso-butane prices hit 3-year record high levels. Meanwhile, the international crude oil prices hovered at highs in 2021. Propane CP and butane CP were high backed by the feedstock market and the international supply, lifting the overall import cost. Accordingly, the overall market sentiment was bullish.

In 2021, the price spread between high-purity n-butane and low-purity n-butane surpassed RMB 600/mt. What are the factors affecting the market? In August 2021, prices of high-purity n-butane were higher than those of alkylate. Will high-purity n-butane prices remain high? How will the profit from n-butane based MA production perform? In 2021, China’s iso-butane prices climbed over RMB 6,000/mt. What are changes in China’s iso-butane market, and how will China’s iso-butane price develop? In H1, 2021, the profit from MTBE production was favorable. How will the profit perform in H2, 2021 and the whole year of 2021?
