Updated to Q3 2018
Ample spot cargo availability amid most bisphenol-A (BPA) plants in Asia Pacific running at full capacity or near optimum levels during most of the third quarter did little to boost the market. Poor import demand during most of the third quarter in downstream epoxy resins as well as polycarbonate markets in China amid tighter environmental measures weighed on the market, limiting BPA demand. Similarly, softening Chinese domestic markets curbed spot prices.
Poor consumer demand of BPA in Chinese domestic markets and particularly on the import front generated downward pressure on spot prices of BPA in the third quarter. Spot prices on a CFR (cost and freight) China basis tumbled to a five-month low towards the end of the third quarter. But downstream capacities expansions helped to cushion the downward momentum, raising hopes of a recovery in demand in the near term. Stabilising downstream epoxy resins demand near the end of the third quarter offered some support.
