Iran bitumen prices remain

Bitumen Prices remain stable

Bitumen Prices remain stable ~   January 22nd 2018

Bitumen prices remained stable despite a 35,000 Toman bitumen price increase in the Stock Exchange. 35,000 Tomans is equal to 8.00 USD/MT which is passed onto consumers which import bitumen. However, because USD value in Iran is at a historic high, this has caused the price increase to be seemingly ineffective. Meaning the conversion of USD into Iran’s local currency has neutralized the much dredded price increase in bitumen value.  It is easy to view this price increase for raw materials also known as Vacuum Bottom as an adjustment to maintain the same level prices as the previous month.

Breaking News in the last 24 hours:

Due to the increase of Crude Oil prices, bitumen prices in Iran are now unstable and we will be offering new rates to our customers next week.

Nearly all bitumen producers and suppliers have stopped offering bitumen prices or are suggesting prices at least 10 USD/MT higher than the norm. This is due to the fact that no one yet knows the effects rising crude oil prices will have on bitumen prices. As the price of crude oil rises so does Vacuum Bottom prices.

If you would like purchase bitumen from us or receive consultation or require a product within Iran’s export industry please contact + 98 912 101 6609 and speak to Mr. Aghili  or email us at sales@iran-bitumen.com and visit www.iran-bitumen.com for updated bitumen prices.

Iran Bitumen prices increase January 2017

Iran Bitumen prices increase by nearly 12.00USD/MT on the 21st January . This bitumen prices increase is based on the increase in value of Vacuum Bottom also known as VB which is used to produce high quality road bitumen for export from Iran.
Another factor which has affected bitumen rates is the decline in USD value in Iran from an average of 4,000.00 Tomans per 1.00USD to nearly 3,800.00 Toman. These two forces have increase bitumen prices an average of 15.00USD to 20.00USD/MT from their previous state.
If USD value gains strength in Iran we may see a slight decline in bitumen prices in Iran.

Iran bitumen price increase

50USD PMT Iran bitumen price increase comes as a big shock

Iran Bitumen prices increase 162,000 Toman in the stock exchange which after taxes will mean a minimum of 50.00USD/MT bitumen price increase in the Iran bitumen market.

The main factors which have played a key role in this price rise in bitumen value includes the high demand for bitumen from Iran by the international bitumen market which includes India, Asia and Africa, the increase in crude oil value and the limitation in the output of crude by OPEC.

While some still hold very little stock of bitumen which they can compromise on its prices and offer lower rates, soon the rates for bitumen 60/70 and bitumen 80/100 once those very minor stocks are depleted, will rise to the expected levels. Bitumen rates can be expected to be at least 300.00USD/MT to 310.00USD on a FOB Bandar Abbas Iran basis in new steel drums of 180 Kg .
Many bitumen buyers will halt their purchase of bitumen and wait to see if the prices of bitumen will come down, however, because OPEC has limited their production of crude, bitumen prices along with crude oil prices will continue to rise.

Let us not forget before the crude oil market crashed Iran bitumen prices were between 400.00USD to 500.00USD/MT. Our prediction is that the prices of bitumen will push upwards to close the gap which has been created in this industry over the last 1-2 years.
Our suggestion to bitumen importers and bitumen brokers, as previously stated in our news section before this price increase is the same. With bitumen prices on the rise investing in your bitumen purchase before bitumen prices rise once again in Iran’s stock exchange will be an investment worth making.

The last Bitumen Buzz of the Year 2015 into 2016

The time has come for an end of the year trading round up or rather The last Bitumen Buzz of the Year 2015 . Let’s review some of the highlights from the last decade that took place in the Bitumen Industry and what we can learn from our commerce in 2015 for the upcoming year 2016 and beyond.

Oil prices fell by about 50 percent since this June. Both Supply and demand factors contributed to the sharp drop in oil prices, but excessive output played a more prominent role in this incident.
