Updated to Q1 2017
European acrylonitrile (ACN) spot prices have risen by around two-thirds since the start of 2017, amid global supply shortages.
The majority of sellers are sold-out for March, and the European spot market is virtually dry.
In the week ending 10 March, the spot price mid-point for Europe was higher than the China spot mid-point for the first time since the current China series began in July 2014.
Low availability in the US and Asia has meant that local shortages cannot be counteracted by import volumes.
Expectations varied on how long the European ACN spot market will remain tight, but some players expect availability to remain low throughout the first half of 2017.
