Arbitrage naphtha cargo flows from the West to Asia are expected to be higher going into the second quarter, estimated at around 2m tonnes, well above monthly volumes that typically average at around 1.5-1.7m tonnes. Weak gasoline demand in Europe amid the coronavirus pandemic is envisaged to add to surplus flows to Asia.
Demand for naphtha for petrochemical production from northeast Asia outlets is expected to be limited by cracker maintenance. The coronavirus pandemic is likely to keep demand cautious in a market with few supporting market factors. Gasoline demand is expected to be low as the pandemic chips at transport fuels that would influence naphtha used for blending.
We offer the following regional Naphtha analysis and news coverage to keep you informed of factors and developments affecting prices in the Asia Naphtha marketplace.
