Propylene market likely to consolidate its position

Dec '08
Although crude prices are moving downward, propylene market in China is showing stability, due to basic balance in supply and demand situation.

With the approaching year end, both factories and traders are cautious and reluctant to take any major move; they are controlling their fund strictly by reducing expenditure and avoiding blind speculation. However, without strong support from down stream manufacturers, the market trend is expected to lose its lustre.

Last week, the mainstream price of propylene in Shandong was stable, and traded at 5200 yuan per ton; in Northwest, propylene price declined 400 yuan per ton, and traded at 5100 yuan per ton; in Northeast region, propylene price lowered by 100 yuan, and was quoted at 4900 yuan per ton; in North China, propylene price fell by 400 yuan to touch 5100 yuan per ton for mainstream level.

China's propylene market is expected to consolidate its position in short term, due to relative firmer trend in down stream market.
