Methyl ethyl ketone demand is expected to usher in a turning point

wallpapers News 2020-09-23

methyl ethyl ketone is mainly used as solvent in coatings (50%), adhesives (30%), ink (8%) other industries, its substitute products are benzene (benzene), toluene, xylene) acetone. Due to the close viscosity solubility, the substitution ratio of acetone acetone is relatively low, but about 10%. Therefore, the ratio of methyl ethyl ketone to acetone or triphenyl has a great influence on its dem. Historically,

historically, methyl ethyl ketone has been used in more high-end fields, so the price has been slightly higher than acetone triphenyl. Its substitutes soared in the short term due to the earthquake in 2011. This also led to a large number of substitution of methyl ethyl ketone in the downstream, the dem was greatly reduced. As a result, after a brief surge in 2011, the price fell sharply remained at a low level. However, since the second half of last year, the price of benzene series represented by pure benzene has increased by 3000 yuan / ton, which has exceeded the price of methyl ethyl ketone by 2000 yuan / ton. Moreover, since acetone also uses pure benzene as raw material, the price rise of pure benzene also pushes up the cost of acetone by 1000 yuan / ton, resulting in the price difference between methyl ethyl ketone acetone from positive to negative. The dem for

increased significantly due to the improvement of the specific value of methyl ethyl ketone, began to partially replace acetone pure benzene. Since July last year, its monthly dem has increased by 71%, from 15000 tons to 25000 tons. However, we predict that in the medium long term, the benzene price will remain strong, the dem for methyl ethyl ketone is expected to usher in an inflection point. Therefore, enterprises in the industry are also expected to benefit. In the near future, the performance of Companies in this sector is obviously stronger than that of the whole chemical industry sector. Author: Zhao Chen
