Ethyl acetate US Transcript
The ICIS weekly USA ethyl acetate report provides three different prices for Etac, all quoted in cents per pound and also converted to dollars per tonne.
The report lists a monthly contract price, a distributor price, base on values in the US northeast and Midwest and a sport export price out of the US Gulf.
The three prices listed in the report change fairly often, sometimes, monthly, but the key value is the distributor price, because it is moved largely by distributors.
The report offers distributors and manufacturers a way to keep tabs on prices for a niche market.
Information for the report is obtained for a large number of buyers and sellers in the US. The ICIS report is an invaluable source of information that allows companies to make informed business decisions

Updated to Q2 2014
The US ethyl acetate (etac) market for the second quarter was a mix of flat demand, tight supply, price increase announcements and defiant buyers.
Turnarounds in the US acetic acid market affected etac, as acetic acid is a feedstock. Celanese, Eastman Chemical and Solvay sought separate 3 cent/lb increases.
Buyers were not pleased. They argued that etac supply was sufficient to sustain current prices.
Furthermore, buyers also stated that if an etac price increase were warranted, it would likely be at 1 or 2 cents/lb instead of the full 3 cent/lb sought by producers.
Buyers proved correct: spot prices for etac increased 2 cents/lb in mid-April, to a range of 56-60 cents/lb. Distributor prices for etac also were assessed 2 cents/lb higher, at a range of 64-66 cents/lb.
As the quarter came to a close, indications were that the etac market would likely remain flat. There had been some concern that acetic acid was trending back up.
However, acetic acid prices have stabilised, and it is likely that etac will remain stable for now.
