Updated to Q1 2021
Deep-sea naphtha cargo flows from Europe and the Mediterranean destined for Asia are anticipated to reach an average at around 1.9-2m tonnes in the early part of the first quarter, relatively on par with average monthly volumes in the preceding quarter. But uncertainty from tighter lockdown coronavirus restrictions in parts of Europe might see surplus flows headed to Asia possibly later in the quarter.
Asia naphtha demand for petrochemical production is set to be steady at the very least, with cracker restarts in the early part of the first quarter likely to fuel demand. Healthy downstream olefins margins are likely to also encourage naphtha feedstock demand. But the possibility of limited demand for gasoline-blending purposes amid tighter coronavirus restrictions in parts of Europe could counter any potential bullish upside in market sentiment.
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.
