With refineries cautious about accelerating their runs amid sluggish demand for other distillates such as jet fuel and gasoil, encountering healthy cracker operations is likely to keep the naphtha market balanced to tight. Soaring temperatures in some parts of Europe will also affect refinery operations, with inflows from the US to fill the void. That said, improving margins could potentially facilitate refinery runs, inducing additional volumes in the prompt market.
The demand outlook appears to be relatively bullish for the naphtha market as steady downstream markets and healthy cracker run rates will continue to push consumption rates higher. In addition, the approaching summer holiday period will see transportation fuel demand pick up pace, with an easing in travel restrictions likely to extend support. Meanwhile, new cracker operations in Asia are likely to enhance export opportunities to the East.
