Quarterly Update on Global Jet Kerosene Market
For the Quarter Ending September 2020
The Asian Jet Kerosene market values edged higher in Q3 of 2020 on pickup in demand for heating oil Kerosene ahead of the winter season. But with travelling season in major global economies coming to an end, the market ended up with lull demand by the end of September. While stock piling due to seasonal shortage temporarily eased off the downward pressure on weak margins of Jet Kerosene, a meaningful rebound is anticipated to take at least a year due to uncertainties over travel activities. To secure profit amidst tepid demand, manufacturers are anticipated to blend excess jet cargoes into alternate fuel pools till 2021.
North America
Market fundamentals of Jet Kerosene in North America observed unprecedented recovery in comparison to other regions because of the higher domestic travel activities. With the travelling season marking an end by September, the demand is likely to stagnate for several months on reduced commercial travelling. Refiners are expecting further boost in recovery by the last quarter with high hopes of increment in the international travel activities as coronavirus cases have plateaued in many economies after surpassing the peak.
The European Jet Kerosene market witnessed dented demand in Q3 as resurgence in coronavirus cases aggravated the global travel restrictions. Surplus cargoes amidst lull demand has continued to exacerbate the supply side crisis. With consumption pattern primarily related to growth in travelling pattern, the demand is likely to stay muted with extended restrictions in international travel activities on fears of second wave of coronavirus across the globe.

Jet Kerosene is a critically refined light petroleum compound with a flash point higher than 38 degrees and a freezing point around 47 degrees. Jet Kerosene comes under the category of aviation fuel that basically comprises fuels that are utilized for aircraft propulsion. Production of Jet Kerosene from crude oil is a complex process primarily concerned with the boiling points of hydrocarbons. At first, the crude is placed into a distillation column and heated at a temperature around 800 degrees Celsius. The temperature decreases towards the top of distillation column. Fuels especially petroleum and kerosene which are referred to as middle distillates, are the materials that are separated at a boiling point between 250 to 360 degree Celsius. Several anti-static substances are added to the freshly refined fuels to make them suitable to use for their specific consuming industries.
