After the festival, the price of acetic anhydride rose by 400 RMB/ton
According to the monitoring data of SunSirs, the price of acetic anhydride rose sharply in October. As of October 10, the price of acetic anhydride was 6,066.67 RMB/ton, up 400 RMB/ton or 7.06% from the price of 5,666.67 RMB/ton on October 1; After the festival, the price of acetic acid, the raw material, rose sharply, and the price of methanol rose sharply. The growth of methanol and acetic acid in the acetic anhydride industry chain was significantly higher than that of acetic anhydride. The market of acetic anhydride rose sharply, but it was still the younger brother of the acetic anhydride industry chain.
The price of acetic acid soared after the festival
It can be seen from the price trend chart of acetic acid in SunSirs that the price of acetic acid continued the rising trend in late September and soared after the festival. As of October 10, the price of acetic acid was 3,735 RMB/ton, up 12.75% from the price of 3,312.50 RMB/ton on October 1 at the beginning of the month; It was up 20% from 3,112.50 RMB/ton on September 25. Since late September, the price of acetic acid has risen by 600 RMB/ton, and some manufacturers have risen by 800 RMB/ton. The sharp rise in the price of acetic acid is good for acetic anhydride.
Methanol price rose after the festival
It can be seen from the methanol price trend chart of SunSirs that the price of methanol has been rising continuously since September, and methanol has witnessed a new wave of rise since September 25. As of October 10, the price of methanol was 3,060 RMB/ton, up 350 RMB/ton or 12.92% from the price of 2,710 RMB/ton on September 25. And the price was up 500 RMB/ton or 21.04% from the price of 2,528 RMB/ton on September 1. The price of methanol continued to rise, the cost of raw materials for acetic anhydride rose, and the impetus for acetic anhydride to rise increased.
According to the acetic anhydride data analysts of SunSirs, although the sales of acetic anhydride remained poor, the upstream methanol and acetic acid prices soared, the cost of acetic anhydride raw materials continued to rise, and the price of acetic anhydride was close to the cost line. The lower profits of manufacturers were bound to transmit to the downstream, and the upward momentum of acetic anhydride prices increased. It is expected that the price of acetic anhydride will rise sharply in the future.
