In Italy, the plasticizers market gained ground for a second consecutive month as April deals were concluded with increases of up to €30/ton from March. The price ranges are quoted at €1230-1260/ton for DOP, at €1180-1280/ton for DINP, at €1200-1280/ton for DIDP and at €1220-1300/ton for DOTP FD Italy, 60/90 days deferred payment for April.

A South European producer concluded some April plasticizers deals with hikes of €30/ton from last month. A producer source said, “Demand is better year on year and the market is balanced. We project rollovers to further increases for May given the approaching high season.”

A distributor sold West and Central European cargoes with increases of €20-30/ton for April. “Market conditions for plasticizers have improved this month as supply is not ample anymore due to lack of imports from Asia. We think that the outlook is firm for May,” he commented.
Buyers paid increases of €20-30/ton on their April plasticizers deals for European origins, commenting that supply and demand has been balanced this month.

For May, expectations are calling for rollovers to further increases in the plasticizers market based on the approaching high season as well as firmer upstream costs.
