Propylene spot prices in Asian market were mixed last week. Fundamentals of PP and PO in downstream derivatives market weakened, making propylene market cautious.

Sales price target determined by traders / sellers was US $1,100 / ton (CFR China). But prices for Southeast Asian cargo and deep-water cargo were lower.

In early week, 4,000 tons of deep-water cargo was traded at $1020-1050 / ton (CFR China), the cargo will probably arrive in the second half of August. Later on about 2,500 tons of cargo was sold at $1025 / ton (CFR China) to an end user.

Remaining 2500-3000 tons of deep-water cargo was quoted at $1,000 / ton (CFR), but it was unclear whether the deal was reached or not.

In the Chinese domestic market, price rose 100 Yuan to 8,400 Yuan / ton (ex-warehouse) in East China, while the ex-warehouse price in Shandong province stood at 8,500-8,600 Yuan / ton.

In Northeast Asia, spot price of propylene was assessed at $1020-1085/ ton (CFR Northeast Asia). An FCC plant with propylene capacity of 120,000 tons / year in Shanghai, China has declared an accidental outage.

Propylene cargo for shipment in early August to mid-August to Northeast Asia and Southeast Asia were traded at $1060-1085/ ton (CFR China).
