Our network of price reporters delivers direct and regular insights into the local markets they work in.
Updated to Q2 2021
Naphtha arbitrage cargo flows from northwest Europe and the Mediterranean bound for Asia are estimated at under 1.9m tonnes in the first half of Q2, steady with volumes in Q4 2020. Fresh lockdowns in parts of Europe, however, could hamper naphtha demand for gasoline-blending and potentially result in excess flows being diverted to Asia from the West.
Asia naphtha demand for petrochemical production is envisaged to be limited in Q2 amid scheduled cracker turnarounds. Improving demand in aromatics sectors amid better margins could help to cushion market sentiment. Increasingly cheaper liquefied petroleum gas as an alternative feedstock may serve to limit naphtha demand.
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.
