2022-2023 China PS Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


In China, considerable profits in recent years have attracted market participants and arisen a new round of PS capacity expansion in 2022. SCI expects that China’s PS capacity will gain above 50% from 2021 as of the end of 2022. PS supply grew step by step this year, but the end demand for PS slid. China’s PS prices lost ground in the second half of this year as supply-demand fundamentals softened. Besides fundamentals, feedstock costs and prices of related products produced a bearish impact on PS prices. Generally, PS prices showed a topsy-turvy V-shaped trend in 2022.

In 2023, the macroeconomic situation will probably face tough challenges. PS industry will usher in intensive capacity expansion, but will new projects come online as expected with PS demand at home and abroad improving? With the expected rapid increase in domestic PS supply, how many exports will increase? How will styrene prices perform in 2023 after falling from highs? How will styrene market affect PS prices? With multiple questions, SCI’s 2022-2023 China PS Market Annual Report combs the industry pattern changes and forecasts the industry development trend through detailed and comprehensive data analysis.
