Decline in international oil prices has played a major role in keeping prices flat. Though downstream sector digested these shocks, overall market sentiment affected badly.

Though market scenario at present is not favorable, short-term benzene market conditions are expected to strengthen.

Factors affecting the market and market trends: while outside market price fell, domestic benzene market conditions slightly softened due to the impact of price collapse in international oil, downstream sector mainly digested stocks temporarily, overall market sentiment was moderate.

Market participants expect that short-term market conditions of domestic benzene may maintain consolidation trend.
