In Italy, the plasticizers market tracked a stable to slightly softer trend in July. The price ranges are quoted at €1280-1300/ton for DOP, at €1200-1280/ton for DINP, at €1210-1280/ton for DIDP and at €1250-1360/ton for DOTP FD Italy, 60/90 days deferred payment for July.

A distributor concluded some deals with decreases of €20/ton for DINP and DIDP in July, citing comfortable supply amidst slow demand while commenting that DOTP prices remained at relatively high levels due to ongoing tightness for this product. The distributor expects to see decreases in August considering lower ethylene costs and the summer holidays.

A South European producer concluded some July deals for plasticizers with rollovers or slight discounts of €10/ton for larger volumes. A producer source commented that the stabilization of the PVC market lent support to prices for plasticizers.

Some buyers reported receiving stable July offers in the first half of the month. However, the plasticizers market gave signs of a mild softening afterwards, weighed down by high stocks on the sellers’ side amidst slow demand.

A compounder bought some West and South European DINP and DIDP with decreases of €20/ton from June and commented that sellers appeared to be under sales pressure. Several other converters also reported obtaining discounts of €10/ton on their July deals.
