This includes market commentary and pricing information on both grades.

Updated to Q4 2014
European monopropylene glycol (MPG) prices saw a steady decline in the fourth quarter, mainly due to unusually warm winter weather in the months leading up to December.
With the construction season drawing to a close and demand for unsaturated polyester resins virtually disappearing, sellers hoped the de-icing sector would begin seasonal ordering in November and December to make up the shortfall. With higher-than-expected winter temperatures across the continent, no significant de-icing orders were recorded and prices fell steadily.
Even with feedstock propylene oxide being scarce in the market due a variety of incidents at Shell’s Moerdijk, Netherlands facility, there were significant reductions in crude and propylene values, adding further downward pressure to MPG.
In December, MPG prices reached their lowest point since July on the back of poor seasonal demand and weak feedstock prices.
