Indian refineries increase the price by only Rs. 700 (~$10) /MT on 1st February 2020. The market crisis seems to get worse by the Coronavirus infecting China’s borders. This health problem is expected to add another layer of complexity to the tensions of oil production and exportation. February bitumen price 2020 and the oil prices see biggest monthly loss since May, as a result of China’s decreasing demand for oil. In the Middle East, Saudi Arabia is calling for an emergency OPEC meeting on concerns about oil demand. This is not just for the oil market, unfortunately.

Many experts suppose that a global market downturn is the only narrative we can foresee for February bitumen price 2020. A third of global growth is coming from China, which means the impact of China’s crisis on the global economy will be far more significant. In the bitumen market, February bitumen price 2020 fluctuations will extend more than before. China is one of the biggest consumers of bitumen in the world.

As Global Platts has reported lately, construction activities are restarting February 10 in Beijing and Hunan, Zhejiang, and Hebei provinces, but in cities in Shanxi, Tianjin, and parts of Sichuan, a restart date has yet to be declared. Concerns about demands will also put pressure on the February bitumen price 2020. For now, what we are sure about is that price fluctuation in the bitumen market will ruin so many deals in the Middle East.
