In Italy, June business in the plasticizers market was wrapped up mainly with modest increases while rollovers were also reported in a few cases. The price ranges are quoted at €1000-1050/ton for DOTP, at €970-1070/ton for DINP and at €970-1090/ton for DIDP FD Italy, 60/90 days deferred payment.

A European producer completed their June deals for plasticizers with increases of €20-30/ton from May. The supplier applied further increases of €20-30/ton on their new July prices, bringing their new offers to €1020-1080/ton for DIDP and DINP on an FD, 60 days deferred payment basis. A producer source commented, “Demand was healthy in June and we expect to see good buying interest in July as well.”

A compounder bought some Central European cargoes with rollovers from May after receiving many June offers up €15-30/ton from last month. “A major producer was aiming for hikes of €60/ton at the beginning of June, but toned down their increases to €30/ton afterwards. The market is still weak and imports are offering a competitive edge,” he noted.

Another compounder also purchased different European origins with increases of €10/ton for June. The buyer reported, “Import prices are low for the time being. Although demand was weak during June, we think that producers might aim for higher prices in July considering higher propylene costs.”

In the import market, South Korean DOTP was for July delivery was dealt at €950/ton DDP, 60 days. Turkish DOTP was purchased at €970/ton with the same terms. For DINP, Far East Asian material for delivery in July were sold at €980/ton DDP, 60 days.
