In Italy, the plasticizers market tracked a stable to slightly softer trend in November following months of decreases. The price ranges are quoted at €1150-1230/ton for DOP, at €1100-1160/ton for DOTP and at €1060-1200/ton for DINP and DIDP FD Italy, 60/90 days deferred payment for November.

A South European producer completed their November business for plasticizers with rollovers. A producer source commented that supply is short for DINP and DIDP so they might ask for some increases in December.

A distributor concluded his November deals with rollovers to discounts of €30/ton. The seller reported, “Prices remained stable for DIDP and DINP owing to short supply amidst good demand, but DOTP offers posted reductions.”

Several buyers also reported making purchases at mainly stable levels for DINP and DIDP in November while reporting slight decreases for DOTP, pointing to incoming imports from Far East Asia for this product. Regarding December, the buyers consider mild increases to be possible for DINP and DIDP considering dwindling supply. In addition, a few players think that the plasticizers market might also receive support from the upstream markets, with ethylene contracts settling up €22.5/ton for December.
