Updated to Q1 2020
Availability of material is expected to remain healthy as overseas turnaround activity is no longer an issue and the market remains in the low season. The potential for competitive offers remains amid sluggish demand. Upward momentum will be contingent on weather patterns and the performance of the chemical industry.
Demand is expected to remain soft on seasonality, although it could tick up as players restock. Demand could also remain hindered; while the recent US-China trade deal has boosted sentiment, underlying concerns remain for various downstream sectors. Q1 contract negotiations are expected to conclude in January, with indications that the markets could see further softness.
