Breaking news of latest developments affecting the markets.
Insight and analysis of factors driving prices.
Higher demand from the do-it-yourself (DIY) sectors, which increases during the summer months, generally eases moving into the winter months, thereby affecting downstream demand.
However, the regular white spirit market continues to shrink as paint producers switch to the more environmentally friendly D40 product – a dearomatised white spirit.
Manufacturing of white spirit is directly affected by the fluctuation in jet kerosene and naphtha, both of which are still at high levels in terms of pricing.
The market is expected to remain balanced since producers are producing on short lead times and customers are keeping inventories as low as possible, preferring to buy on a hand-to-mouth basis.
