In Italy, November deals are being concluded lower in the plasticizers market after the October business was wrapped up with rollovers or small reductions of €10/ton. The price ranges are quoted at €1330-1400/ton for DOP, at €1280-1380/ton for DINP and DIDP and at €1360-1450/ton for DOTP FD Italy, 60/90 days deferred payment for November.

A distributor sold West and Central European cargoes with decreases of €30-40/ton from October. The seller expects prices to decline further in December, commenting that the market can not support any increases.

A compounder made some purchases €20-30/ton below October. “Demand is weak while supply is ample. Producers are lowering their prices for plasticizers as they are struggling to conclude deals. We project further reductions for December,” he commented.

Another compounder reported that the market is quite weak and stated that West European suppliers issued decreases of €50-60/ton for DINP and DIDP. The buyer expects prices to decline further next month.

A different converter also obtained discounts of €20-30/ton on his November deals for plasticizers and voiced bearish expectations for the upcoming month.
