On June 15, the main closing price of methanol futures in Zhengzhou Commodity Exchange was 2514 RMB/ton, up 2.57% in the day. The atmosphere of the domestic methanol spot market is warming up. Before the festival, some traders make up for the air and the downstream goods to support the mentality of the industry. After the festival, the new prices in Northwest China may be relatively strong, and at present, they are generally bullish. According to the monitoring of SunSirs, as of June 15, the average price of domestic methanol production enterprises in Shandong was 2535 RMB/ton, with a month-on-month decrease of 7.06% and a year-on-year increase of 56.48%.
However, the maintenance plan of some methanol production enterprises is slightly delayed, the supply is relatively sufficient, and the social inventory is not good for the time being. In terms of downstream demand, the market of formaldehyde, dimethyl ether, and acetic acid is mainly on the wait-and-see basis, and there is no obvious positive pull for the moment. The price of MTBE is relatively good, crude oil continues to rise, and refined oil is about to open an upward window, which gives the market some psychological support and is expected to further push up the methanol market.
