2022-2023 China Benzene Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


In 2022, the capacity expansion of China's benzene industry continues, but it is not as fast as the expansion speed of downstream markets. China’s domestic supply is tight throughout the first half of 2022, and short squeezes occur frequently, boosting the benzene price strongly. In the first half of 2022, the benzene price has reached RMB 10,350/mt at one time, breaking the new high in nearly a decade. In the second half of the year, the benzene supply increased gradually affected by the opening of the domestic-foreign arbitrage window, and downstream industries have suffered heavy losses. Under this background, the benzene price falls from a high level.

In the downstream market, styrene is still the main force to promote the growth of benzene demand. In 2022, many newly added styrene units have been put into operation one after another, and the industry competition is fierce, with the continuous loss of profits at styrene producers. Following styrene, caprolactam, phenol, acetone and adipic acid have also fallen into deficit in 2022. Cost factor became one of the main factors affecting downstream industries, and downstream factories suffer.

In 2023, benzene may be listed in futures after styrene, and the market attention will increase again. In addition, there are many new downstream projects in 2023, involving styrene, phenol and acetone, caprolactam, etc., while the new capacity of benzene will be less. In the future, the supply and demand pattern of benzene will remain dynamic. When will the regional trade flow change? How will the output gap of benzene be supplemented in the future? How can new projects maximize profits? How will buyers react?
