According to the data of the business agency, the market of chloroform rose this week (9.13-9.20). As of September 20, the price of chloroform bulk water in Shandong was 3450 yuan/ton, up 9.96% from 3137 yuan/ton last Tuesday. Since September, the price of methanol as raw material has risen sharply, and the cost is strongly supported by chloroform. In addition, the commencement of methane chloride has declined slightly, so the pressure on the supply side is not great. The chloroform manufacturers have a strong desire to support the price.
This week (9.13-9.20), the commencement of domestic methane chloride fell slightly on the whole, supporting the chloroform market.
This week (9.13-9.20), the spot price of methanol decreased slightly, but since September, the price of methanol has risen sharply, which continues to support chloroform. According to the business community, as of September 20, the spot price of methanol was 2710 yuan/ton, down 0.60% from 2726 yuan/ton last Tuesday, and up 7.20% from 2528 yuan/ton at the beginning of the month.
On the one hand, the refrigerant inventory is low and the market supply is tight; On the other hand, the high temperature power rationing gradually ended; On both sides, the refrigerant started to rise slightly, which has certain support for chloroform.
According to the methane chloride data analysts of the Business Society, the domestic methane chloride starts to decline slightly, the raw material price stage is supported at a high level, and the downstream refrigerant starts to rise slightly, forming a strong support for chloroform; It is expected that trichloromethane will consolidate at a high level in the short term. In the future, we still need to pay attention to whether the cost and demand side support are continued.
