3. Reason for the price increase
These price increases are required to partially offset the unprecedented increases in naphtha and crude oil prices. These prices effect on our primary raw materials and energy costs.

Given that these rising prices are beyond our capacity to absorb, we have determined that upward revisions in our product prices are unavoidable.

Besides,due to the tight supply situation, it is difficult to ensure an ongoing stable supply without adjusting prices level.
