With the decline in the price of aniline after Nov.2017, the price of Aniline went up again after reaching bottom in early December, and the overall price was still at a higher level than in 2017. In the short term, raw aniline in the tight supply, there is further higher expectations.
From the downstream accelerator, the current NS, DCBS and other supplies are still relatively tight, so the overall supply price relatively strong. It is learned from some market sources that some enterprises still have plans to further expand the production capacity of downstream accelerators due to the relatively small total supply of downstream accelerators and the sluggish downstream demand. In particular, some enterprises that have launched the related equipment during the year or will further release new capacity by 2018.
In the short term, the price of accelerator MBT is still expected to fall further due to the continuous increase of supply, on the other hand, the weakening of downstream demand. However, the price of downstream accelerator will continue to increase in the face of continued tight supply situation.
