In mid December, China and the United States reached the first stage agreement to boost market confidence. Most people believe that the pressure of China's textile exports will be improved and the trade pattern will take a turn for the better. In terms of crude oil, OPEC and the production reduction Alliance announced that after the 5-6 meeting in December, the 1 quarter of 2020 increased production by 500 thousand barrels / day, so that crude oil prices continued to rise for nearly half a month, and WTI crude oil prices rose 4.29%. Cyclohexanone increases with the cost of raw materials, but the supply of spot goods is adequate, and the downstream demand for procurement is not sustainable. In terms of caprolactam, Sinopec's CPL liquid material settlement price in December was 11150 yuan / ton, up 150 yuan / ton compared with November settlement price. PA6 because of the low demand for the downstream, the inventory pressure is large, and the rise is limited.
From the comparison of the price trend of PA6 and nylon POY, PA6 tries to reduce the price shipment, then the cost pressure drives the price up, and the downstream wait-and-see sentiment is strong, and the price is lowered again. At the end of the year, the majority of nylon manufacturers mainly focused on clearance and production as a supplement. The impact of rising raw material prices is relatively small, orders production is the mainstream, many stocks hold price shipments, some of the low inventories, orders prices slightly increased.
Business analysts believe that at the end of the year, the price of nylon is basically stable in late 12. Under the good news of oil production reduction and trade pattern improvement, market confidence has recovered slightly. It is expected that nylon will rebound when the raw materials are warmed up.
