European Plasticizers Update

In Italy, the plasticizers market continued to follow a stable to slightly soft trend in December. The price ranges are quoted at €1120-1200/ton for DOP, at €1100-1160/ton for DOTP and at €1050-1150/ton for DINP and DIDP FD Italy, 60/90 days deferred payment for December.

At the beginning of the month, sellers sought to achieve increases of €10/ton to €20/ton from November due to limited supply. “We have concluded some deals with rollovers to slight reductions depending on volumes and customers. At the beginning of the month, supply was a bit short for DINP and DIDP, but supply has normalized during the month owing to balanced demand,” said a distributor.

A South European producer reported concluding their December businesses for plasticizers with rollovers to decreases from November. A producer source reported that supply was quite limited while demand was good. He also added that they expected to see rollovers to slight increases in January due to short supply.

A PVC compounder also commented that they made some purchases this month with rollovers to slight decreases.

For January, some market players expect to see rollovers or increases due to limited supply, although a few players think that prices will remain stable to slightly softer due to lower feedstocks costs.
