PTMEG: price stops falling, supply&demand pattern alters slightly
Text size
Perspective: PTMEG market has revived and is not under losses this year stimulated by rebound in commodity market after experiencing 5-year reduction, and price of PTMEG changed greatly this year.

Fundamentals of PTMEG industry is still robust in the first half of 2017 affected by the turnaround of units and the force majeure overseas, and supply is supposed to be stable to tight.

But the strong appearance on PTMEG market may disappear when downstream market meets difficulty in passing on high cost and traditional slack season is approaching. Demand from downstream market especially from spandex industry may exert greater influence on PTMEG market trend.

Supply and demand status should be noted: Supply and demand pattern on PTMEG market changes. Supply is tight in China, and that of imported resources increases. PTMEG units start operation overseas, and exports of PTMEG slip greatly.

Supply of PTMEG is expected to be in shortage in short run but supply and demand may reach balance from the third quarter of 2017 after some units resumed production.
