US IPA prices decrease on lower demand; supply remains ample
Despite some optimism that demand would improve in mid-August, isopropanol (IPA) markets have seen diminished demand this week. Prices fell in domestic, export, and spot markets.
Domestic prices fell by 5 cents/lb ($110/tonne) on the high end and 7 cents/lb ($154/tonne) on the low end. Prices are now assessed at 58-70 cents/lb DEL US Gulf.
Players reported activity in spot markets was down this week, as buyers said they had ample inventories at the moment. Spot prices decreased 3-5 cents/lb and are now 60-68 cents/lb FOB US Gulf.
In some cases, buyers were willing to buy additional IPA since they had storage capacity. However, they found themselves in better-than-expected bargaining positions since there were multiple suppliers offering product for sale.
