Thermal coal continues to hit new highs, methanol cost support was once again highlighted, the tight supply situation had not changed, downstream on-demand procurement continued, and the mentality of upstream and traders was supported. However, some Northwest olefin factories began to sell methanol, beware of risks. In the short term, the methanol market is still expected to rise again, giving strong cost support to formaldehyde.
The demand of downstream panel plants was acceptable, and there was no resistance to the acceptance of formaldehyde prices, and the formaldehyde market was rising.
