Demand also witnessed prominent recovery from solvent and pharmaceutical applications but still remained way below pre pandemic levels. Container shortage exacerbated the supply crises in the region and consequently laid a direct influence on its prices.

Although demand in India remained stale but the
prices witnessed a steep hike in the second half
of the quarter, buoyed by its delayed imports due
to congestion along several routes. Consequently,
Methylene Dichloride prices in India were
averaged at around USD 539 per MT in the quarter
ending December 2020. Supply remained sufficient
despite few turnarounds heard in China as
manufacturers refrained from mounting up
inventories to abate any hurt to their margins.
In Northeast Asia, plant operating rates remained
same throughout the quarter following no major
change observed in the product demand and supply
fundamentals.    North America   Since a
significant amount of Methylene Dichloride is
imported from Europe, several maintenance
turnarounds and unprecedented increase in the
freight charges limited the supply of Methylene
Dichloride in the North American market and led
to a steep increase in its prices during the
quarter. Demand also witnessed prominent recovery
from solvent and pharmaceutical applications but
still remained way below pre pandemic levels.
Container shortage exacerbated the supply crises
in the region and consequently laid a direct
influence on its prices. However, traders
remained optimistic that the supply imbalance
would surely reduce by the end of
February.   Europe   Supply of Methylene
Dichloride in the European market remained tight
in Q4 following appreciable recovery in demand
against several production issues in the first
half of the quarter ending December. Increase in
freight rates and high feedstock cost
considerably affected the supply from its major
exporter-China. Olin Corporation announced a
maintenance turnaround at its Europe plant in
December which further tightened the domestic
supply for few months. Demand for Methylene
Dichloride witnessed a substantial recovery in
the second half of 2020 backed by its increased
consumption from the pharmaceutical industry.

  • About
  • Methylene Dichloride is also known as
    dichloromethane or chlorinated carbon is a
    colorless and slightly sweet, scented solvent
    which is widely utilized as an industrial solvent
    and also as a strong paint thinner and paint
    stripper. The product is not miscible with water,
    but it is polar in nature and miscible with
    several other organic solvents. The compound is
    produced via chlorination of Methane where
    several other derivatives could be formed in the
    method. In the process, cyclohexane, propylene
    and 2-methyl-2-betene are used as stabilizers.
    The purity of various products formed is largely
    based on the extent of chlorination and content
    of hydrocarbons in the reaction. Methylene
    Dichloride is conventionally retrieved from
    extraction process. The compound exists in stable
    form when dry but possesses high affinity to
    water thus hydrolyses under its presence.
