At present, the profit margin of ethylene glycol is better than that of ethylene oxide, so enterprises with CO production units such as Sanjiang are more inclined to produce ethylene glycol, and the operating rate of ethylene glycol is increased. Polyester futures prices fell, which dampened the enthusiasm of the downstream to pursue the rise to a certain extent. The market inquiry and buying were light, and the production and sales continued to decline.
Forecast: the overall chemical industry shows a downward trend, and ethylene glycol may have fluctuation risk.
