Updated to Q1 2021
Supply and demand fundamentals are set to be stronger, while some believe feedstock costs have further room to move up. Supply is likely to remain healthy as the recovery continues downstream. Given the US feedstock advantage for butane due to hydraulic fracturing of shale formations, pressure from overseas sellers will be soft. New fractionation capacity is slated to be added by 2021 but reduced crude production and rising demand will weigh on feedstocks.
There is cautious optimism regarding the demand outlook, driven in particular by the construction sector, but also concerns that the pace of recovery could slow amid a resurgence in coronavirus cases. Demand from housing construction and remodeling is expected to perform well amid an ongoing economic recovery and low interest rates. Some parts of the country are experiencing warmer than usual weather this winter, which could reduce butane demand.
