Updated to Q3 2018
Supply of anhydrous fuel-grade ethanol was ample in Q3, with corn harvest in the US continuing at levels similar to the previous year. Hydrous ethanol supply was briefly interrupted due to logistical issues during a trucker strike in Brazil and then followed by heavy rains there, but the harvest/crush season resumed at healthy levels late in the quarter.
Demand decreased as the Philippines, the main export destination for US fuel-grade ethanol in southeast Asia, increased requirements for blenders to purchase locally produced ethanol under a quota system before they can import any material. The US-China trade war also eroded demand for fuel ethanol shipments from the US to China as the latter imposed stiff tariffs for US ethanol.
ICIS publishes a weekly report for Ethanol in Asia which contains price quotes for the anhydrous and hydrous grade product.
For the anhydrous grade, we get the import prices through the Philippines and also track prices from Pakistan. For the Hydrous grade; import prices to North East Asia and South East Asia are assessed.
These are prices for deep sea material usually arriving from Brazil. We work closely with our colleagues who cover the US and Brazilian markets to ensure we capture all the movements to Asia and help to provide global context to the regional market.
The report monitors shipping freights as it has an important role in influencing economical prices and a breakdown of fixtures and enquiries is included.
As the only weekly stand-alone publication on the Asia Ethanol market, the report offers a timely and objective round-up of the Asian business and the factors affecting the market.
