2022-2023 China HDPE Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


2022 saw challenges and breakthrough constantly such as the price hike of international crude oil at the beginning of the year, increasing complicated global economic situations and declined exports due to weakening demand caused by sluggish global economy. The environment for the HDPE industry was growingly intricate. As for the cost side, the international crude oil prices continued to stay at highs. As for the supply side, the total supply surged as China’s HDPE enterprises put much newly added capacity into production and the offers of imported resources were low. As for the demand side, the declined operating rates at some enterprises slowed down the production recovery due to the decreased downstream orders and high temperature. All the above factors exerted great impacts on the HDPE industry. Although the overall operating rate of China’s manufacturing industry recovered slowly in H2 supported by China’s policies to stabilize economy and promote development, the imbalanced growth of HDPE supply and demand as well as the structural overcapacity aggravated. How will the overall HDPE market pattern change in the future amid the complicated global economy development?
