A premonoidal category is a generalisation of a monoidal category, applied by John Power and his collaborators to denotational semantics in computer science.
Recall that a bifunctor to $C$ from $D$ and $E$ (for $C,D,E$ categories) is simply a functor to $E$ from the product category $C \times D$. We can think of this as an operation which is ‘jointly functorial’. But just as a function to $X$ from $Y$ and $Z$ (for $X,Y,Z$ topological spaces) may be continuous in each variable yet not jointly continuous? (continuous from the Tychonoff product $Y \times Z$), so an operation between categories can be functorial in each variable separately yet not jointly functorial.
Recall that a monoidal category is a category $C$ equipped with a bifunctor $C \times C \to C$ (equipped with extra structure such as the associator). Similarly, a premonoidal category is a category equipped with an operation $C \times C \to C$, which is (at least) a function on objects as shown, but one which is functorial only in each variable separately.
A binoidal category is a category $C$ equipped with
A morphism $f\colon x \to y$ in a binoidal category is central if, for every morphism $f'\colon x' \to y'$, the diagrams
and
commute. In this case, we denote the common composites $f \otimes f'\colon x \otimes x' \to y \otimes y'$ and $f' \otimes f\colon x' \otimes x \to y' \otimes y$.
A premonoidal category is a binoidal category equipped with:
such that the following conditions hold.
A strict premonoidal category is a monoidal category in which $(x \otimes y) \otimes z = x \otimes (y \otimes z)$, $x \otimes I = x$, and $I \otimes x = x$, and in which $\alpha_{x,y,z}$, $\lambda_x$, and $\rho_x$ are all identity morphisms. (We need the underlying category $C$ to be a strict category for this to make sense.)
Similarly, a symmetric premonoidal category is a premonoidal category equipped with a central natural isomorphism $x\otimes y \cong y\otimes x$ (as for $\alpha$, there are two naturality squares unless we use the slick approach), satisfying the usual axioms of a symmetry.
As a strict monoidal category is a monoid in the cartesian monoidal category Cat, so a premonoidal category is a monoid in another symmetric monoidal category whose underlying category is also $Cat$.
Given categories $C,D$ and functors $F,G\colon C \to D$, a (not necessarily natural) transformation from $F$ to $G$ consists of, for each object $x$ of $C$, a morphism from $F(x)$ to $G(x)$ in $D$. (So a natural transformation is a transformation that satisfies an extra property.) We can compose transformations using vertical composition (but not horizontal composition).
Given categories $C,D$, let $C \Rightarrow D$ be the category whose objects are functors from $C$ to $D$ and whose morphisms are transformations between these functors. This makes $Cat$ into a closed category. We can then define a tensor product by a universal property and make $Cat$ into a monoidal category $(Cat,\otimes)$ which is in fact symmetric.
Then a strict premonoidal category is precisely a monoid object in $(Cat,\otimes)$.
It may be possible to weaken the above make $(Cat,\otimes)$ a symmetric monoidal 2-category, in which a monoid object is precisely a premonoidal category, but if so, nobody seems to have written this up yet. It is possible, however, to describe part of the structure of a non-strict premonoidal category in terms of $(Cat,\otimes)$. For instance, a binoidal structure on $C$ is precisely a functor $C\otimes C \to C$, and the naturality of the associator $\alpha$ can be expressed by saying that it is a natural transformation (with central components) between functors $C\otimes C\otimes C \to C$.
Every monoidal category is a premonoidal category.
If $T$ is a strong monad on a monoidal category $C$, then the Kleisli category $C_T$ of $T$ inherits a premonoidal structure, such that the functor $C\to C_T$ is a strict premonoidal functor. This premonoidal structure is only a monoidal structure if $T$ is a commutative monad.
The central morphisms of a premonoidal category $C$ form a subcategory $Z(C)$, called the centre of $C$, which is a monoidal category. This may define an adjoint functor to the inclusion $MonCat \hookrightarrow PreMonCat$ (I haven't actually checked this).
In the same way that a (strict) monoidal category can be identified with a (strict) 2-category with one object, a strict premonoidal category can be identified with a sesquicategory with one object. In fact, a sesquicategory is precisely a category enriched over the monoidal category $(Cat,\otimes)$ described above.
