Market overview


This week, the PC market saw a significant decline.

Influencing factors
Prices in some domestic factories continued to drop at the beginning of the week, and most factories suspended their offers and just needed real-order negotiations. Merchants' trading mentality is weak, low-end prices in the market have fallen significantly, and shipment sentiment continues to be high. The sharp decline has curbed buying sentiment, and some just need to wait and see, and temporarily postpone the replenishment of inventories. In the second half of the week, the bisphenol A market stopped falling and gradually rebounded. The PC market mentality was cautious and wait-and-see, and the weak trading situation showed limited improvement.

Market outlook forecast
The market pays attention to manufacturers' trading mentality and the slowing down trend.
