This week, the price of PVC spot market stopped falling and rising, and the increase range of enterprises was mostly around 50-200 RMB/ ton, and the price was generally concentrated around 7000 RMB/ ton. The market rose slightly and bid farewell to the previous decline temporarily. PVC rose this week mainly due to the strong volatility of futures prices, inventory decline and other positive boost, the spot market prices rose steadily. At present, the futures price of PVC rebounds strongly, and the spot market is actively rising. At the same time, due to the repeated public health events in some areas, the transportation is not smooth in some areas, the arrival resources are limited, and the export has improved. There is a certain demand for goods in the downstream years ago, which leads to the decline of inventory and the rise of PVC price. At present, the shipping pressure of enterprises is not big, and the supply of goods in some areas is tight, which has boosted the market atmosphere. However, restricted by the off-season and approaching the Spring Festival, the support of demand side is gradually declining, PVC has a substantial upward trend, and there is no actual driving force for the time being. The bearish sentiment of the industry has not changed, and the short-term market is mainly volatile.
