BD prices in Asia may fall further in September

August 31/2011

(ICIS) -- Butadiene (BD) prices in Asia may fall further in September with more supply coming into the market while demand is still weak, given current low production in downstream synthetic rubber sector, market sources said on Wednesday.

Spot BD discussions for September shipments on Wednesday are at USD 3,500-3,700/tonne (EUR 2,415-2,553/tonne) CFR (cost and freight) NE (northeast) Asia, according to traders. In the week ending 26 August, BD spot prices were assessed at USD 3,650-3,700/tonne CFR  NE Asia, down by USD 350/tonne from end-July, according to ICIS.

Several BD spot parcels from China and the Middle East are available for September loading but demand has remained soft as several downstream synthetic rubber plants in Asia are either shut for maintenance or are running at reduced rates, traders said.
