Updated to Q2 2014
US epoxy resin contract and spot prices were largely steady during the second quarter as downward pressure from overseas sellers eased and feedstock costs were lower.
US contract prices shed 1 cent/lb ($22/tonne) during the quarter, while spot prices gained 2 cents/lb.
Overseas sellers faced feedstock pressure, mostly in Asia, preventing them from moving their prices to a steeper discount against domestic product.
This allowed US producers to keep prices steady as feedstock costs fell, creating some margin restoration for them.
Overall demand started to increase as winter weather eased in the US and the coatings season began.
However, Q2 demand levels were only slightly improved quarter on quarter and year on year, while total year on year demand through the second quarter was down.
Supply in the US remained long, as import material lost some attractiveness but remained a viable option and US producers continued to have high inventory levels.
