The pricing of Gum Rosin in China continues to firm as production in southern China is off.  Chinese Turpentine prices though, have softened.  Reports state that the last of the Pine Oleoresin has arrived in the spot market so small and medium Gum Resin plants have sold Turpentine for cash.  This cash is meant to purchase Oleoresin to produce Rosin.  
The same reports state that the average export price in October was $2430/ton as opposed to $1910/ton in September.  Likewise, the export of Pinenes from China in October increased by 5.66% over September.  Borneol prices rose in October by 7.9% over September but are down by 30% from the same time last year.  Camphor USP prices have also risen and are expected to continue to rise in early 2017.  Iso Bornyl Acetate has also experienced a price increase.

On the week of October 15th two typhoons, Sarika and Haima, both struck China. The resulting heavy rains hampered production in the Pine growing regions.  There are also reports that several Gum Rosin plants were damaged.  These influences have caused Turpentine prices to rise dramatically.  We have seen offers for Dihydro Myrcenol, Iso Bornyl Acetate, and Camphor Powder all jump this week.  It is believed that this trend will continue for the foreseeable future.

Our most recent report from July 23rd advises that new demand for Gum Resin has changed the dynamics of the market.  Pricing has stabilized, reversing a trend of softening over the last few weeks.  While processors are hoping to see the downward trend continue, the report states that Gum Resin Manufacturers are keeping their offers firm.  Gum Turpentine prices have remained stable except in Guangdong where they have increased.  Prices for IBA, DHM, and Synthetic Camphor among others have begun to increase.

Reports of off demand and soft prices for Gum Resin from China are in line with a 50-100 RMB drop in market prices we saw the week of November 7th.  Producers are holding off on further reductions in the case that counter offers are not accepted. Tree tapping will reportedly continue until the end of November, which may force derivative producers to accept market pricing.  This, in turn, may increase costs for IBA, Camphor USP, Terpinyl Acetate, and other derivatives.  The Turpentine market requires close attention.
