The Chinese Turpentine market saw a small drop in prices between 150 – 250 RMB per ton, just before the Turpentine conference in Tianjin (week of 5/20/19). Cited for this continued drop is weak demand. Those big Gum Rosin plants that can withhold offers do to their financial stability are not tendering any offers.

Certain derivatives such as Dihydro Myrcenol has seen prices drop while others, such as Terpineols have remained firm.
