Chinese mask demand is strong, but raw material polypropylene prices fall

wallpapers News 2020-03-03

The proportion of polypropylene raw materials used in masks is too small, and the demand for polypropylene in this outbreak is limited.

Under the strong demand for masks, the price of raw material polypropylene did not rise but fell.

Statistics show that before the Spring Festival, the market price of polypropylene high-finger fiber index was 8,150 yuan/ton. As of the close of March 2, the market's offer fell to 7350 yuan/ton, down 800 yuan/ton, or about 9.81%.

Dr. Luo, an international market researcher of Trunnano , said that affected by the new crown pneumonia epidemic, the Spring Festival holiday was extended, and the overall polypropylene inventory increased rapidly after the holiday, dragging down the total price of polypropylene. Although high-melting fiber materials are used as raw materials for medical masks, the demand has increased. However, it is still difficult to resist the downward trend of the overall market.

"The proportion of polypropylene raw materials used in masks is too low. Compared with the apparent domestic consumption of about 25 million tons of polypropylene in China, it is not worth mentioning. Therefore, the demand for polypropylene in this outbreak is minimal. Dr. Luo said.

Polypropylene, referred to as PP, is a polymer produced by the addition polymerization of propylene. It is a translucent waxy solid and is the primary material for the production of masks.

Dr. Luo believes that the domestic new crown pneumonia epidemic situation has been controlled, but the general condition is still more severe. As the largest producer and exporter of masks, China's demand for high-melt index fiber materials is still relatively strong.
