Deficit in Russian dioctyl phthalate market

April 27/2010
MOSCOW (MRC) Ц Seasonal demand increase and suspensions for scheduled maintenance  of the largest  Russian dioctyl phthalate capacities on Salavatnefteorgsyntez ground strengthen the deficit in Russian market. However, stabilization of this situation is expected in mid-May Ц according to MRC.

Deficit in Russian dioctyl phthalate market

Dioctyl phthalate production capacities were suspended for repairs by Salavatnefteorgsyntez  from April 11 to May 16.  Seasonal elevation of demand for plasticizers in soft PVC-composites production sector and shutdown for maintenance of the biggest producer have led to deficit in the domestic market. Price for dioctyl phthalate made in Roshalsk plant starts from RUB65.000/mt, VAT included, FCA.


Tight plasticizers market could have been compensated by the other Russian producers, in particular, Ural chemical plant. However, in April Ц May supply of diethyl hexanol, one of two key material sources, is limited in Russian market. At the same time it is highly possible that Salavatnefteorgsyntez will earlier resume dioctyl phthalate production.

Deficit in Russian dioctyl phthalate market traditionally appears when Salavat capacities are suspended. Salavatnefteorgsyntez is the biggest Russian plasticizers production, the capacity forms about 36.000 tpa. Monthly dyoctyl phthalate supply into the domestic market forms average 2.9 kt. Suspension essentially reflects on Russian market balance.
