Updated to Q3 2020
With refineries operating at reduced run rates and some still undergoing maintenance, supply has eased significantly causing tightness in the market. As cracker margins improve, consumption rates are likely to remain high contributing to the existing tightness. Meanwhile, inventory levels remain low, and imports limited. Buyers and sellers are seen far apart.
The demand outlook appears to be relatively bullish for Q3 as Asia is expected to pick up more naphtha, while regional demand will remain supportive with demand for gasoline blending to grow in all regions. However, the LPG-naphtha spread has flipped in the opposite direction with both rising naphtha prices and lower LPG prices, which could lead to crackers switching to LPG as their feedstock of choice if naphtha prices continue to rise, helping to relieve some tightness.
