ICIS price reporting for regional Feedstocks markets is unparalleled in its ability to keep you on top of the information you need.
That means you can track fluctuations and developments as they happen and gain a clear understanding of the factors driving prices.
Updated to Q4 2019
Tightness in the market is anticipated in Q4, largely driven by seasonally higher demand coupled with increased enquiries from Asia in the absence of Saudi supply, thus absorbing length in the market. In the absence of physical availability, there are expectations of material moving in and out of Europe more frequently, creating a greater volatility in the market.
The demand-side outlook for the European LPG market for Q4 appears to be fairly balanced. Increased demand from the Middle East and Asia is likely to continue while domestic regional consumption rates edge higher due to autumn. Nevertheless, higher US inventories and growing concerns around economic growth harbour downside risks.
We offer the following regional Feedstocks analysis and news coverage to keep you informed of factors and developments affecting prices in the Europe & US Feedstocks marketplace.
