European propylene oxide (PO) supply was on the tight side during most of the first quarter because of healthy derivative performance and maintenance work. There was a strong pull into the downstream winter de-icer sector amid harsh winter conditions in Europe. However, in mid-March, one producer suggested that supply was balancing out, with what it considered to be weaker demand from the downstream polyol sector. However, the latter could not be confirmed in the wider market.
Demand remained healthy during most of the first quarter. Downstream de-icer demand was particularly strong amid freezing conditions and snow in Europe. Demand from the downstream PO starch-based food applications segment was also healthy. While demand was healthy across various sectors during the first quarter, one player talked of demand from the downstream polyol sector flagging slightly in mid-March. However, this view was not widely confirmed.
