In September, manufacturing PMI of China increased to 50.1%, up by 0.7% compared to August. Driven by the traditional peak season, the supply and demand of the manufacturing industry has recovered but the magnitude is not as good as in previous years. The PMI of the construction industry rose at a high level in September, while the service industry was suppressed by the epidemic and declined. It is expected that there will be greater downward pressure on exports and social zero in September, infrastructure investment will maintain a high growth, and the decline in real estate investment growth will narrow.

October is the traditional peak season in the Indian market, the demand of the downstream industry is better, and because the Chinese market price is rising rapidly, exporters are waiting for new quotations, China, Japan and South Korea have recently exported only a small amount of TDI, which further drives the TDI price in the Indian market.

After the holiday, TDI prices jumped sharply under the firm support from the supply side. Major suppliers successively raised guide prices by a wide margin. Covestro's facility failure and Wanhua Chemical's routine maintenance made the overall industrial operating rate drop to around 30%. Besides, the logistics in Xinjiang was hindered due to the local epidemic, and spot goods continued to be short.

Traders controlled the supply and chose to deliver high-priced orders. Negotiated prices moved upward strongly.
