In Italy, the plasticizers market registered decreases in September, weighed down by lower feedstock costs. The price ranges are quoted at €1200-1250/ton for DOP, €1130-1220/ton for DINP, at €1130-1230/ton for DIDP and at €1180-1250/ton for DOTP FD Italy, 60/90 days deferred payment for September.

A South European producer concluded their September deals for plasticizers with decreases of €40-50/ton from last month. A producer source commented, “Demand has been good as buyers’ stocks were mostly empty after August. We think that October will also be a good month in terms of trading activities. Prices for plasticizers are likely to decline next month considering the lower propylene settlements.”

A distributor sold Central European cargoes with decreases of €30-50/ton for September. According to the distributor, supply and demand were in balance.

A compounder bought West European material with discounts of €50/ton from last month, commenting, “DOP is disappearing from the market due to more competitive prices for DINP and DIDP.” Another compounder made some purchases €50-60/ton below last month. The buyer reported seeing good demand for his end products in September and commented that plasticizers suppliers conceded to slightly larger discounts due to sales pressure.

A converter bought West and South European material with decreases between €45-60/ton for September. According to the buyer, producers had high stocks left from the past few months.
