Updated to Q1 2016
Asia's spot import prices for the US pharmaceutical-grade propylene glycol (USP) grade of monopropylene glycol (MPG), continued to slide in the first quarter amid tepid demand and stiff competition among suppliers, while industrial-grade propylene glycol (PGI) in northeast Asia found a floor and were largely stable from late-February to first-half March before recovering slightly towards end-March.
Average PGI prices for bulk cargoes in northeast Asia hit bottom at $1,025/tonne CFR (cost & freight) NE (northeast) Asia before rebounding to $1,075/tonne CFR NE Asia in second-half March amid rising feedstock propylene oxide (PO) prices, while southeast Asian prices slipped to $1,200/tonne CFR SE (southeast) Asia in second-half January and remained flat for the rest of the quarter. Average USP prices for drummed cargoes were on a downtrend in Q1 to reach $1,250/tonne CFR NE Asia in late-March, but were stable at $1,515-1,525/tonne CFR SE Asia for most of the quarter before slumping to $1,450/tonne CFR SE Asia to close the gap on northeast Asian prices.
MPG prices were generally stable-to-soft in Q1 amid stagnant demand and longish supply, but further declines were kept in check by rising raw material prices towards the latter part of the quarter.
