Since the beginning of winter in November, the market performance of chloroform has been depressed, mainly due to three reasons: first, the price of raw materials has fallen, and the cost support has collapsed; 2、 The supply side increased, the early maintenance enterprises gradually resumed production, and the overall operating rate of the industry was higher than that in the early stage; 3、 Winter comes, air conditioning is mainly off-season, and the downstream demand is low. To sum up, the negative factors in the three aspects of the industrial chain have become the three mountains that overwhelm chloroform.

Since November, the price of methanol has fallen sharply, and the cost has been dragged by chloroform. According to the business agency, as of November 30, the price of methanol was 2775 yuan / ton, down 12.09% from 3156 yuan / ton at the beginning of the month.

The start-up of domestic methane chloride plant is 60 ~ 70%, and the supply side is higher than that in October.


Downstream refrigerants are generally delivered in the off-season, and the demand for chloroform is reduced; The consumption of downstream fine chemicals is small, and they are basically purchased on demand. On the whole, the downstream demand for chloroform is not strong.

Future forecast: Analysts of methane chloride data of business society believe that the supply of chloroform is relatively loose, the cost is low, and the downstream demand is weak. It is expected that the chloroform market will continue to be weak in the short term. However, due to the sharp release of market sentiment due to the decline in the early stage, it will be weak and stable in the short term.
