North American PP resin prices move up in May

After a flat month in April, North American polypropylene resin prices increased an average of 4 cents per pound in May.

The increase followed a similar rise for polymer-grade propylene monomer, which is used to make PP resin.

Prior to being flat in April, PP prices had dipped 3 cents in March. The March decline was the fifth consecutive monthly price drop for North American PP, with those declines totaling 24.5 cents.

In 2020, North American PP supplies will be impacted by the addition of almost 1 billion pounds of capacity by Braskem in LaPorte, Texas, and of 550 million pounds of capacity by Formosa Plastics Corp. USA in Point Comfort, Texas.


Stable to firm trend pervades PP markets in Mid-East, Africa

New PP offers in the Middle Eastern markets have rolled over or increased from last month amid planned and unplanned shutdowns after firming attempts showed up sporadically but somehow failed to prevail across the region in February. March offers to African PP markets are also stable to firm, first time after one year.

Firming trend extends into March in S.Arabia

A major Saudi producer increased PP offers to the local market by SAR37/ton ($10/ton) when compared to February levels, and a different local producer held offers unchanged for March.

The new offers echoed the view of the market players, who highlighted higher costs and the firming sentiment across the globe. Demand, meanwhile, is yet to show an uptick ahead of Ramadan.

Rollovers for 3rd straight month from Emirati producer

Emirati players received rollovers from a domestic producer for March for the third month in a row, while the major Saudi producer’s new PP offers have so far been announced with increases.

Despite improving to a certain degree, trading activities were still deemed below expectations in the UAE. Traders agreed that demand started to improve slightly and that further improvement was expected before Ramadan, when players usually begin securing stocks.

Shutdowns ongoing across Mid-East

The firming sentiment that has been in place since last month found support from the planned and unplanned production outages in the Middle East.

In February, Saudi Arabia’s Advanced Petrochemical Company shut one of its production lines at its PP plant in Al Jubail, Saudi Arabia due to unexpected technical issues. The line has come back online as recently as this week.

Saudi National Petrochemical Industrial Company’s (NATPET) fire-hit plant in Yanbu, Saudi Arabia is also expected to remain offline until later this year, further capping supply in the region.

In the UAE, Borouge, a joint venture between Abu Dhabi National Oil Company and Borealis, is also undertaking a turnaround at its petrochemical complex. The maintenance shutdown also affects its PP plants at the complex.

Nigeria’s ELEME raises PP first time after a year

Nigerian producer ELEME has announced its February offers to the local market with increases of NGN10,000-11,000/ton ($28-31/ton) for PP grades. According to ChemOrbis Price Index, this has been the first hike in PP since March 2018 after either rolling over or lowering its offers. The market sentiment in Nigeria was marred by a climate of political and economic instability related to the long-awaited presidential elections in the country.

Demand remains flat in Kenya

Meanwhile, and in Kenya, the overall price range for PP raffia and inj. from the two Saudi producers were more or less unchanged from February. Kenyan players reported slow market activities, with buyers restricting their purchases to needs-basis.
Although players expect a seasonal uptick in demand, there is still the question that whether the challenging economic environment in the continent will weigh against the expected recovery.

European PS market set to rise for second straight month

In Europe, the PS market is set to witness another round of increases for March after prices rebounded from their four-year low in early February. Players’ firmer expectations are mostly based on tight supplies across the region as well as strong upstream costs.

Firm expectations for March boost pre-buying activity

February PS business was mostly wrapped up last week with increases of around €20-40/ton over January. Sellers enjoyed buoyant demand towards their February cargoes amid widespread expectations that the firmer trend might gain speed in March.

Meanwhile, some players reported that firmer talks for March boosted pre-buying activities in the region as buyers were eager to secure some extra volumes before prices increase further in the upcoming month.

A distributor of a West European producer said, “We have recently concluded a few more February PS deals with increases of €30-40/ton. We are feeling free from any sales pressure as our PS allocations are limited and the outlook remains firm for March.”

Tightness keeps market firm

Distributors of different European PS producers reported that overall regional supplies remained low and they were not able to satisfy all customers’ needs for February.

Buyers also confirmed this situation as they had to seek material from different supply sources to maintain their operations.

A disposable kitchenware manufacturer in Belgium noted, “We settled our February PS contracts with hikes of €20-30/ton. It was difficult to secure all our needs this time due to most suppliers’ low stocks, which might give an upper hand to them in seeking a new round of increases for March.”

Styrene stands as the other supportive factor

According to data from ChemOrbis Price Wizard, the weekly average of spot styrene prices on CIF NWE basis has been chasing a stable to firmer trend for around six weeks, standing at its highest levels since early November.

Strong naphtha prices and crude oil futures have been contributing to the slightly firming trend in the spot styrene market while players believe that spot prices might receive extra support from the upcoming turnarounds at some regional crackers.

The uptrend in the spot styrene market is expected to pave the way for a higher monomer outcome for March, with players mostly talking about possible increases of €40-50/ton.

February styrene contracts were fully settled at €995/ton, up by €20/ton from January, meanwhile.
