In Italy, the plasticizers market registered notable decreases in February, with prices breaking below the €1000/ton threshold on the low ends of the ranges. The price ranges are quoted at €980-1070/ton for DOP, at €980-1080/ton for DOTP and at €950-1030/ton for DINP and DIDP FD Italy, 60/90 days deferred payment for February.

A distributor concluded some February deals for West and Central European cargoes with decreases from €25/ton to €60/ton depending on the purchasing volumes. “We are anticipating a stable trend for March looking at the upstream markets. In addition, prices have reached quite low levels in the plasticizers market,” the seller commented.

Buyers reported making purchases for February with decreases of up to €60/ton and attributed these reductions to sellers’ sales pressure.

Regarding the March outlook, some buyers are anticipating a mostly stable trend for plasticizers, assuming that prices have hit the bottom this month while a few others are considering slight discounts to be also possible.

March propylene contracts settled with rollovers from February at €560/ton FD NWE today, supporting expectations of a stabilization for the approaching month.
