PET supply in Latin America in the fourth quarter of 2019 is likely to be ample as offshore product continues to be offered in the region. Inventory levels could continue to rise unless plant operating rates are reduced if the US-China trade war does not come to an end soon. Low demand levels stemming from economic uncertainties will also contribute to high inventories.
PET demand in Latin America in the fourth quarter of 2019 is expected to be sluggish, despite the approach of warmer temperatures in South America. Business will also remain slow in Mexico due to cooler temperatures and reduced export volumes to the US, as buying interest in said country has declined as a result of the global slowdown and fears of a potential recession.
