European Plasticizers Update

In Italy, the plasticizers market posted decreases for another month in October due to lower upstream costs. The price ranges are quoted at €1150-1230/ton for DOP and DOTP and at €1070-1200/ton for DINP and DIDP FD Italy, 60/90 days deferred payment for October.

A South European producer concluded some October deals for plasticizers with decreases of €20/ton from September. A producer source commented, “Prices declined due to lower feedstock costs while demand was good this month. For November, we think that stabilization is possible while increases are unlikely.”

Many buyers reported making some purchases with decreases of up to €50-60/ton for October. A compounder commented, “Sellers appear to be under pressure due to their high stocks. Meanwhile, our end product demand is weak and is likely to remain muted in the next few months.”

Another compounder confirmed ample availability for plasticizers and commented that suppliers faced difficulty depleting their stocks in October.
