Market Overview: China Benzene Annual Study

ICIS has recently launched the latest version of the China Benzene Study, an in-depth report of the year’s developments and hot topics, with a supply/demand outlook for 2015.

As the new capacities such as Sinochem Quanzhou Petrochemical and Pengzhou Petrochemical come on stream, the domestic supply of benzene keeps increasing in 2014. However, some new capacities in the downstream indsutry have postponed their start-up dates, leading to a situation of oversupply.
In July 2014, China benzene imports amounted to 375,000 tonnes, 9.57% less than the import level in the same period last year, showing a reduction of import reliance. Sinopec still dominates the China benzene market, whilst the international market primarily influences market sentiment.
In the future, the main focus of market players should be the trend of domestic benzene supply and demand information, especially the process of the expanding downstream new capacities. The Chinese Benzene Annual Study offers a detailed insight into the market, with all of the necessary information to gain first-mover advantage.
