Updated to Q2 2017
Styrene monomer (SM) domestic prices moved down in April, with lower buying interest. Prices dropped a lot because inventories at ports did not drop as expected, and some participants were less confident of the market outlook.
In May, prices rebounded because of decreased local port inventories and firmer crude oil values. Prices at Huaxicun Commodity Exchange continued to rise, also stimulated SM domestic prices.
Downstream demand for SM remained firm, supporting prices. In early June, prices rose further with short spot supply and lower inventories.
