Feb '08
New York oil price experienced a sharp rise on Tuesday, once again breaking through the mark of US $100 per barrel. However, this boost could not stimulate sentiment of propylene market, and China's domestic propylene market mainly remained stable.

Mainstream price in Hebei market was steady at 10,000-10,100 yuan per ton, sales were in stability.

The Northeast market price stood at 9,700-10,700 yuan per ton with tight supply, and were mainly delivered within the industry. In the Northwest region, mainstream market price was offered at 9600 yuan per ton, manufacturers' inventories were low, and shipments were good.

Downstream market of polypropylene held a strong wait-and-see attitude; trade volume did not see any improvement, and domestic propylene market showed limited volatility.
