European Plasticizers Update

In Italy, the plasticizers market was silent in August as trading activities were hampered due to the summer lull. The price ranges are quoted at €1195-1270/ton for DINP and DIDP and at €1250/ton for DOTP FD Italy, 60/90 days deferred payment for August.

At the beginning of August, a South European producer announced his initial prices for plasticizers with rollovers from July. A producer source commented that trading activities were calm due to the summer lull and added that demand could revive as of late August. A compounder bought West European cargoes with rollovers to €10/ton decreases for August and commented that the market was quiet.

By the end of the month, however, the plasticizers market started to track a trend similar as the PVC market and posted larger reductions compared to the initial discounts. A compounder bought West and South European material with decreases of €25-30/ton from July. According to the buyer, supply for DOTP was tighter compared to DINP and DIDP.
