Updated to Q2 2021
With refinery maintenance turnarounds, tightness is likely to persist in the naphtha market, especially as the producers remain cautious of run rates during the pandemic. That said, improving gasoline margins owing to steady demand in both the US and Europe are likely to push regional refiners to increase output.
Cautious optimism surrounds Q2 demand as the return of lockdowns in Europe is likely to deter demand for gasoline, while increased liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) competitiveness in the cracking pool will add to demand-side woes. That said, strong growth in the ethylene and propylene markets is likely to favour naphtha consumption rates, even if the propane-naphtha spread to remains highly negative until the end of the summer.
