Since this year,

has witnessed a downturn in the chemical market, but vinyl acetate has a unique lscape. Its production sales volume have increased substantially, the export volume has repeatedly reached new highs. According to the data of

, in the first half of this year, China's total export of vinyl acetate reached 52800 tons, 31 times of the same period in 2013, which is the historical peak of China's vinyl acetate export.

vinyl acetate is an important organic chemical raw material, which is widely used to produce a series of chemical chemical fiber products, such as polyvinyl acetate, polyvinyl alcohol, coating, slurry, adhesive, film so on. At present, Sinopec is the largest supplier of vinyl acetate in China.

in the first half of this year, China's export volume of vinyl acetate was 31 times that of the same period in 2013, the import volume only accounted for 13% of the total consumption, far lower than 42% of the same period last year. According to the data, the domestic export volume of vinyl acetate was 25000 tons in July, the highest single month export volume in previous years, it is expected to exceed 20000 tons in August. Analysts pointed out that China's vinyl acetate Market has completed the transformation from an importing country to an exporting country.

have sprung up in China's vinyl acetate export this year. Relevant experts from chemical sales companies pointed out that the fundamental reason lies in the shortage of international market supply. The reduction of vinyl acetate production in Europe the United States has led to a sharp rise in the price of vinyl acetate in the international market.


Celanese Ineos closed two sets of vinyl acetate plants in Europe, the production capacity was permanently withdrawn. The capacity of these two units is 300000 tons / year 350000 tons / year respectively, which leads to the shortage of vinyl acetate supply in European market. In the first half of the year,

, several major vinyl acetate plants in the United States announced that they could not resume production due to irresistible reasons. Domestic enterprises of

make up for the gap. The permanent withdrawal of production capacity of

in Europe the shutdown of American plants not only bring about a turning point for vinyl acetate in European American markets, but also drive the gradual recovery of China's market. Since the beginning of the year, domestic vinyl acetate prices have been rising. In the first half of the year, the market price in East China increased by 885 yuan / ton, with a cumulative increase of 12.8%.

in order to make up for the gap in the international market, domestic enterprises seize the opportunity to take measures to increase load increase export. At present, most domestic enterprises are full load production. Sichuan Vinylon plant Shanghai Petrochemical Co., Ltd. have also taken measures to adjust product mix reduce intermediate products to increase the output of vinyl acetate increase export market supply. Market participants of

pointed out that, according to the tradition over the years, August is the off-season of vinyl acetate. Due to the influence of early factors, domestic vinyl acetate is not in the off-season. In mid August, the price of vinyl acetate Self Extraction in East China was 8600 yuan / ton, still at a high level.

reporters learned from the chemical sales company that the current domestic sales of vinyl acetate are relatively good. Taking Sinopec as an example, the inventory is small the product sales are in short supply.

will gradually fall back in the future.

will gradually fall back. However, according to the insiders, the international market in the early stage is an abnormal situation. "With the restart of vinyl acetate plants in the United States in the early stage, it is expected that China's vinyl acetate export volume will decline after September. According to the situation in August, the export volume in the later period of domestic negotiation has decreased, it is expected that the export of vinyl acetate will decline after October. ".

have traditionally been the territory of the United States in the international markets of North America, South America Europe due to the convenience of sales channels transportation. At present, the United States early shutdown of the device is being restored, two of which have achieved normal operation. With the restart of parking devices in the United States, the international market supply will continue to grow, its price will also tend to normal.

although China's exports will fall back to the normal level after September, analysts pointed out that as domestic enterprises seize the market opportunities market conditions, although the export volume will fall in the future, it will gradually tend to stabilize maintain a certain level of export. However, in the long run, the sales situation of vinyl acetate in China is still not optimistic. At present, there is overcapacity of vinyl acetate in China. At present, the total domestic capacity of vinyl acetate is 3 million tons / year, many new units will be put into operation in the future. In addition, the domestic economic growth has slowed down in the past two years, the market situation of vinyl acetate is still under great pressure. Although the current situation of vinyl acetate is good, the downstream dem is still insufficient, the operating rate of downstream polyvinyl alcohol unit is low.
