Price & market indicators
Spot trading is dominant in Asia, but in Europe and the US the majority of volume is secured under contract. Europe is structurally well-balanced in propylene so the market is highly sensitive to production issues and logistics challenges.
Polypropylene (PP) is the largest downstream sector, making propylene sensitive to PP demand conditions.
