The dichloromethane market rose slightly in July.

In July, the operating rate of domestic methane chloride plants did not change much, and the supply side was basically stable.
The price of raw material liquid chlorine was low, and the cost impact was relatively negative. The price of methanol fluctuated at a low level, and it was difficult to support dichloromethane According to SunSirs, as of the end of July, the mainstream ex-factory price of liquid chlorine for tank trucks in Shandong was around 700 RMB/ton; the price of methanol rose from 2,555 RMB/ton at the beginning of the month to 2,585 RMB/ton at the end of the month, an overall increase of 1.17%.
In July, the downstream film, pharmaceutical and other industries of dichloromethane started normally, forming a rigid support for dichloromethane, and more downstream such as cleaning agents and thinners were also purchased on demand.
