Annual Report Overview

2022-2023 China Propane Market Annual Report


In 2022, with refining-chemical integration projects coming on stream, China’s propane output further rose. Given the newly added propane deep-processing units at refineries, the commercial volume of Chinese-made propane shrank. Moreover, China’s propane import volume further rose, but the import growth slowed down notably. The downstream deep-processing capacity expanded rapidly, but the theoretical profits dropped from high levels. Besides, operating rates of propane deep-processing units decreased notably. On the backdrop of high international crude oil prices, there were imbalances in China’s propane market.

The proportion of fuel-use propane demand continued declining, and that of chemical-use propane demand enlarged quickly, underpinning propane market. Furthermore, the international propane prices were relatively high in the wake of high international crude oil prices, and China’s propane prices hovered at highs, hitting a 10-year new high level.

In the future, China’s propane output will probably continue to rise with China’s oil refining capacity increasing. Given the refining-chemical integration development, the deep-processing capacity at refineries is likely to further expand, so the increment in China’s propane commercial volume may be limited. In terms of the downstream deep-processing industry, the overall deep-processing capacity increases, but deep-processing enterprises will probably experience pressure from high feedstock cost and severer market competition. In 2023, there will probably be changes in China’s propane supply-demand pattern, and China’s propane market may face greater opportunities and challenges.
