The industry believes that the price increase of propylene oxide this time is mainly driven by the increase in raw material prices and supply and demand. On the cost side, the rising prices of upstream raw materials have put pressure on corporate costs. On the supply side, under the influence of the global energy crisis this year, many international chemical companies have announced to suspend supply. Under the influence of force majeure factors such as logistics obstruction, closures and controls in many places, limited start-up, and supply cuts by chemical giants, the prices of chemical raw materials continued to skyrocket. From the demand side, with the promotion of consumption in my country and the boom in the production and sales of terminal new energy vehicles, the demand for propylene oxide is expected to continue to increase. Therefore, it is believed that under the background of shrinking supply and increasing demand, the price of propylene oxide is expected to follow an upward trend. 

Last year, China's propylene oxide production capacity was 5.39 million tons/year, and its output was 3.7 million tons.
