HOUSTON (ICIS)--US glycol ethers (butyl glycol and butyl di-glycol) exports in March decreased by 17% from February, according to data released by the US International Trade Commission (ITC) on Thursday.
US exports of butyl glycol and butyl di-glycol fell to 17,177 tonnes in March from 20,773 tonnes in February.
Exports declined in March mainly because of a decreased amount of butyl glycol and butyl di-glycol sent to China.
March exports increased, however, from 14,631 tonnes in the same month of 2011.
At 3,853 tonnes, China was the major destination for glycol ethers exports, followed by Belgium at 3,424 tonnes, Korea at 2,500 tonnes and Taiwan at 2,327 tonnes.
Other destinations included the United Arab Emirates, Colombia, Turkey, India, Brazil and Mexico.
