欧洲聚氨酯市场面临困境

欧洲聚氨酯商场面对窘境

原标题:欧洲聚氨酯商场面对窘境

我国石化新闻网讯 据ICIS网站1月9日伦敦报导 估计2020年前几个月,欧洲聚氨酯(PUs)质料的供应将趋于饱满,需求将放缓,只要弱小的信号标明商场将脱节2019年重创石化职业的外部压力。

与其他石油化工产品相同,在宏观经济要素不断下滑、交易紧张局势继续的情况下,异氰酸酯和多元醇的价格现已溃散,这些要素在整个2019年给全球商场蒙上了暗影。

挨近第四季度末,用于修建和绝缘的硬质聚氨酯泡沫质料粗亚甲基二苯基二异氰酸酯(MDI)的价格比ICIS自2002年开端报导以来的最低价格高出一个百分点。

其异氰酸酯双组分、纯MDI(鞋用聚氨酯泡沫的质料)体现稍好,不过价格自2018年10月以来一向呈继续下降趋势,现在处于两年半低点。

相同糟糕的是,表面活性物质甲苯二异氰酸酯(TDI)(用于柔软的泡沫床上用品和家具中)价格跌至不到2018年5月的14年低点时的一半。

与此同时,多元醇(与异氰酸酯反响生成并测定聚氨酯聚合物功能的化合物)处于三年多来的最低点。

Europe's polyurethane markets face a winter chill

Saturated supply and slow demand are anticipated to prevail in Europe’s polyurethanes (PUs) feedstocks into the early months of 2020, with only thin signals to indicate a break from external pressures that hammered the petrochemicals industry in 2019.

Like other petrochemicals, prices of isocyanates and polyols have crumbled in the face of slipping macroeconomic factors and the ongoing trade tensions that have overshadowed global markets throughout 2019.

Near the end of the fourth quarter, prices of crude methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI), a feedstock for rigid PU foam used in construction and insulation, were a notch above the lowest prices ICIS has on record since beginning coverage in 2002.

Its isocyanate twin, pure MDI – a feedstock for PU foam used in footwear among other applications – has fared slightly better, although prices have been on a consistent downtrend since October 2018 and are at two-and-a-half-year low.

Equally bad, cousin toluene diisocyanate (TDI), which is used in flexible foams for bedding and furniture, has seen prices tumble to less than half what they were in May 2018 when they hit a 14-year low.

In the meantime, their partners - polyols - the compounds that react with isocyanates to produce and determine the properties of PU polymers, were at a more-than-three-year low.
