market situation

The dual raw material market continued its upward trend last week, especially bisphenol A, which rose by more than 3,000 yuan/ton in a single week. Supported by high raw material costs, the epoxy resin market soared, and the price of liquid resin easily broke the 30,000 yuan/ton mark and rose sharply. See the specific market below:


Quotes Summary

Bisphenol A: In terms of raw materials, the phenol ketone market declined slightly during the week, and the extent was not large: the latest reference price of acetone was 5000 yuan/ton, and the latest reference price of phenol rose first and then fell. The latest reference price was around 9500 yuan/ton.

Installation situation: The industry as a whole is operating normally, with an overall operating rate of about 80%.
