According to the data monitored by SunSirs (the average price of SG5 manufactured by calcium carbide method), on July 14, the mainstream average price of PVC in China was 9,012.5 RMB/ ton, up 0.14% from 9,000 RMB/ ton at the beginning of the month, down 1.23% month on month, and up 37.12% compared with the same period last year.
In the first half of 2021, the PVC market was operating at a high level, and the price once approached 10.000 RMB/ ton. Since June, the off-season effect of the market has continued to this day. In the first half of July, the PVC market was generally stable, the price fluctuation was less than 1%, the adjustment was not much, and the price was still high. Recently, the price of PVC futures fluctuated significantly, and tried to rebound many times, but stopped at 9,000 RMB/ ton. For the spot market, the boost was limited. Most enterprises adjusted the price by 50 RMB/ ton, with little fluctuation, and the basis of futures and cash gradually decreased. At present, in the off-season, the start-up of the downstream products industry is declining, and there is still resistance to high price PVC. They just need to purchase. In July, the number of maintenance enterprises is decreasing, the supply is increasing, and the sales of enterprises are under certain pressure. The mentality of the operators is negative. On the whole, the supply and demand sides are weakening. However, the price of raw calcium carbide has risen recently, and the cost side supports PVC, which is not easy to fall deeply, Most of them fluctuate in a small range.

SunSirs PVC analysts believe that the current supply and demand are weak, PVC futures rebound shock, but the spot market is still limited volatility. As the price of raw material calcium carbide rises due to the limitation of electricity, the support of cost side becomes stronger and stronger. It is expected that the short-term market will be stuck and it is difficult to distinguish between long and short term. The price of PVC mainly fluctuates in a small range in China.
