Producers’ Response and Export Markets

In response to the changing market dynamics, producers have begun to scale back their raw material purchases gradually. Export markets, primarily concentrated in the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Europe, and South Korea, continue to play a significant role in market activity.

As temperatures increase, the Dalian market is poised to experience a shift towards its low season, resulting in anticipated price declines. Producers’ adjustments in raw material purchases and the ongoing influence of export markets will likely impact price stability in the coming weeks. Monitoring these factors will be crucial in understanding the direction of market prices, which may either rise, stabilize, or fall accordingly.
