Methyl methacrylate Europe Transcript
The European methyl methacrylate report is published weekly on Fridays. Our report contains quarterly contract prices, as well as spot prices. Both on a free delivered (FD) northwest Europe (NWE) basis in euros per metric tonne and with conversion to US cent per pound.
The report also has MMA feedstock prices for acetone monthly contracts and methanol quarterly contracts.
Demand from the cast and extruded sheet industries as well as the resins and coatings sectors are driving the industry. Off take for the foreseeable future is expected to remain high. With no new capacity scheduled in Europe in 2011, availability is limited.
On a weekly basis we speak to consumers, producers and traders about MMA prices, supply and demand for the monomer as well as imports and exports.
The report is read by players across the industry as well as up and downstream from MMA.
By reading our report, you are able to get an impartial view on the market, and many companies rely on our data in order to base their business decisions.
