Asia Pacific PO Market Report 2023

The Asia-Pacific region mentioned in this report covers China, Southeast Asia, India, Japan, South Korea



In 2022, a series of interrelated major events, including the COVID-19 pandemic, the war in Ukraine and the resulting food and energy crisis, soaring inflation, tightening debt conditions, and climate emergencies, resulted in a severe blow to the global economy. The global economy has been seeing a slowdown in 2023 since the last year. The Asia-Pacific region is generally in a post-pandemic recovery phase, but the recovery is slow. Dow Chemical and Shell declared force majeure on the supply of propylene oxide. Zhejiang Petroleum & Chemical, Satellite Chemical, and Jincheng Petrochemical successfully started their new production facilities. However, the demand from polyether polyols and propylene glycol has not met expectations, amplified the supply-demand imbalance and further tilted the dominance downstream. The price of propylene oxide has fallen to the level of CNY 10,000/tonne, with narrower fluctuations, while profitability has significantly declined. With the implementation of “Industrial Structure Adjustment Guidance Catalogue”, the use of chlorohydrin process is expected to be phased out in China by the end of 2025.
