Annual Report Overview

2022-2023 China Butane Market Annual Report


In 2022, the international crude oil prices hovered at highs, giving support to prices of energy products. Accordingly, China’s butane prices fluctuated upward, and the international butane prices also rallied. The April butane CP hit a new high level from March 2014, and the overall butane import cost remained high. Besides, influenced by supply changes, prices of butane and downstream products once showed different trends.

As for butane downstream products in 2022, MTBE export orders increased, driving up operating rates of iso-butane dehydrogenation units reaching high levels since 2020. Accordingly, the demand for iso-butane improved. In terms of the MA industry, the benzene-based MA capacity gradually weeded out, and there were many proposed n-butane based MA projects, attracting a lot of eyeballs. The price spread between n-butane and iso-butane gradually enlarged, and there were changes in procurement of n-butane isomerization unit feedstock, so the unit profits strengthened.

There were opportunities and challenges in butane market in 2022. In the future, the demand for MTBE will probably be tepid, will iso-butane dehydrogenation units maintain high operating rates? Can active market trading become normal? Will newly added downstream capacity come on stream as scheduled? What is the impact of rising feedstock procurement on butane supply-demand pattern? SCI 2022-2023 China Butane Market Annual Report presents the industrial pattern change and forecasts the industry development via detailed data analysis.

Based on the first-hand basic data and authoritative data, 2022-2023 China Butane Market Annual Report analyzes butane market in 2022 and forecasts the future butane market trend.
