European PP prices increased by EUR90/tonne and more in January for CIS markets

January 14/2021
MOSCOW (MRC) -- The January contract price of propylene was settled in Europe up by EUR65/tonne from the previous month. However, all European producers announced a greater increase in export prices of polypropylene (PP) to be shipped to the CIS markets in January, than the rise of monomer prices, according to ICIS-MRC Price report.

Negotiations over January prices of European PP began in the first days of the month. All market participants reported that European producers have gone for a significant increase in export prices for propylene polymers.
Moreover, some producers adjusted their export prices twice in the first two weeks of January.

In some cases, the price growth was recorded at the level of EUR90/tonne, and in some cases, the price increase reached EUR160/tonne.

It is also worth noting that all producers in Europe have serious export restrictions, and some producers do not even plan to sell PP to the markets of the CIS countries this month. Deals for January shipments of homopolymer propylene (homopolymer PP)  were done in the range of EUR1,040-1,100/tonne FCA, whereas last month"s deals were done in the range of EUR950-1,000/tonne FCA.

Deals for block copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymers) were done in the range of EUR1,100-1,190/tonne FCA, versus EUR970-1,030/tonne FCA a month earlier. The situation with the Middle East polypropylene is no better; local producers also started raising export prices under the pressure of rising oil prices.

Quotas for shipments to the markets of the CIS countries have been reduced in comparison with December. Also, the price of the Middle Eastern PP is under serious pressure from the growth of sea freight.

The deals for January shipments of Middle Eastern homopolymer PP were in the range of USD1,280 - 1,360/tonne CIF. Some sellers have already started negotiating deals for February shipments, and prices are reaching USD1,400 /tonne CIF.
