Compared to the previous quarter, however, the last three months of the year may see a more moderate increase in product prices, based on the report of China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Federation (CPCIF) quoted by Sinopec.
Meanwhile, uncertainties in the global economic recovery would continue to weigh on exports, the report stated.
CPCIF, formerly known the China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Association (CPCIA), expected the Chinese petrochemical sector to post a 29.5% surge in full-year sales to CNY8,600bn, Sinopec said.
In the first nine months of 2010, actual industry revenue grew 35.3% year on year to CNY6,330bn, according CPCIF.
