Domestic DME markets in China had a pattern of first growing and then decreasing. On March 6 2022, average DME prices in Henan were 4,096.67 RMB/MT, while they were 4,330 RMB/MT on March 13, an increase of 5.70% over the previous week and 14.35% over February 1. The market price of the raw material methanol stabilised, while the price of liquefied gas in the civil market began to decrease, providing the market with some assistance. Additionally, terminal demand was weak, downstream enthusiasm for entry was restricted, the methyl ether market was unable to continue rising, and the price fell significantly, which primarily spurred downstream entry. Shandong and Hebei provinces also saw a dip.
