TURPENTINE & DERIVATIVES

TAGS: / /

Our most recent report (July 15th) is advising that Turpentine prices have stayed firm. Rain in the main Pine growing regions has not helped supply. This report also states that demand for derivatives is lackluster, as downstream plants reportedly have no urgent orders they need to cover. These plants expect prices to soften so are in no rush to buy at this time.

Reports continue to advise there is enough demand in the market to keep prices for Gum Turpentine firm. Additionally there is a new inquiry for a very large quantity of Iso Bornyl Acetate that has caused prices to rise 20% in one day. Expect this trend to continue.

The last report we received prior to this writing had “Gum Turpentine Rocketing” as a headline.  The reported cause of this increase in demand is that several derivative producers started ordering large amounts in order to fulfill contractual requirements.

The pricing of Gum Rosin in China continues to firm as production in southern China is off.  Chinese Turpentine prices though, have softened.  Reports state that the last of the Pine Oleoresin has arrived in the spot market so small and medium Gum Resin plants have sold Turpentine for cash.  This cash is meant to purchase Oleoresin to produce Rosin.  
The same reports state that the average export price in October was $2430/ton as opposed to $1910/ton in September.  Likewise, the export of Pinenes from China in October increased by 5.66% over September.  Borneol prices rose in October by 7.9% over September but are down by 30% from the same time last year.  Camphor USP prices have also risen and are expected to continue to rise in early 2017.  Iso Bornyl Acetate has also experienced a price increase.

Reports state that Gum Rosin prices continue to trend upwards as availability of crude is limited.  Pricing of Turpentine has softened slightly as several large Gum Rosin plants have sold in order to raise cash to procure more rosin.  We have not yet seen an impact on Derivative pricing.  Levels have stayed stable against pricing in October.

On the week of October 15th two typhoons, Sarika and Haima, both struck China. The resulting heavy rains hampered production in the Pine growing regions.  There are also reports that several Gum Rosin plants were damaged.  These influences have caused Turpentine prices to rise dramatically.  We have seen offers for Dihydro Myrcenol, Iso Bornyl Acetate, and Camphor Powder all jump this week.  It is believed that this trend will continue for the foreseeable future.

Our most recent report from August 22nd continues to advise that Gum Turpentine prices are firm.  In Yunnan Province most processors of Gum Resin have temporarily ceased production as demand is off.  Those producing Gum Turpentine are reportedly sold out and no spot Turpentine is available.  We have seen some pricing on derivatives such as IBA reflect this, and expect to see more price increases.

Our most recent report from July 23rd advises that new demand for Gum Resin has changed the dynamics of the market.  Pricing has stabilized, reversing a trend of softening over the last few weeks.  While processors are hoping to see the downward trend continue, the report states that Gum Resin Manufacturers are keeping their offers firm.  Gum Turpentine prices have remained stable except in Guangdong where they have increased.  Prices for IBA, DHM, and Synthetic Camphor among others have begun to increase.

The latest report from China states that Gum Resin prices softened the week of 6/13.  In contrast, prices for Gum Turpentine rose during that period.  The report states that while a small amount of Gum Resin has entered the market, there is no new Gum Turpentine.  With downstream plants waiting for prices to fall, offers from producers have stayed firm.  Additionally, labor in Yunnan has shifted to the tea harvest, limiting the supply available for tapping.  If and when Gum Resin production returns to normal levels we would expect prices to soften from current levels.
