March sell ideas shaping up in the European PP market

After spot PP prices posted hikes of up to €60-70/ton from early February levels in line with higher upstream costs as well as reports of reduced availability, the West European PP market is set to witness a new round of increases in March, with initial sell ideas starting to emerge with sharp gains compared to February.

A distributor in Belgium revealed his March sell ideas with hikes of €100/ton from February at €1175-1185/ton for homo-PP and at €1225-1235/ton for PP block copolymer on an FD, 60 days deferred payment basis. “Demand has been good so far and we expect propylene contracts to settle higher for the upcoming month, but our supplier is aiming for even sharper hikes than the projected monomer gains in order to recoup their margins,” the seller commented.

A French distributor expressed his March sell ideas for different West European origins with increases of €70-80/ton after selling out his February allocation in the first half of the month.

Another distributor in Germany is giving February PP offers with increases compared to the beginning of the month at €1070/ton for homo-PP and at €1120/ton for PP block copolymer FD, 60 days deferred payment. The seller reported holding comfortable stocks for PP in anticipation of firmer prices for the upcoming month and added that he projects increases of €50-70/ton for PP.
