Russian DOP will go up in value in May

April 26/2013

MOSCOW (MRC) -- In April, the planned outage for maintenance at Salavat plant and a growing seasonal demand led to a serious increase in prices of DOP plasticizer in the Russian market, according to MRC Price report.

In early April, the increasing cost of 2-ethylhexanol resulted in rise in prices of DOP plasticizer in the Russian spot market by Rb3,000/tonne to the level of Rb70,000-72,000/tonne, including VAT and delivery.

Since 20 April, Gazprom Neftekhim Salavat has shut its DOP production for a monthly turnaround. As a result, in the last week of April, the plasticizer prices reached the level of Rb72,000-75,000/tonne, including VAT and delivery, in the spot market.

Russian producers do not exclude further increases of DOP prices in May on a continuing rise in feedstock prices and limited supply. Price offers for June shipments of South Korean DOP were voiced in the range of USD77,000-79,000/tonne, including VAT and delivery.

In their turn, end-users of DOP report that, even taking into account the April price level of Russian DOP, it will be more profitable to import  plasticizer, particularly, from South Korea. Thus, consumers hope that imports will limit the price rise.
