Updated to Q2 2017
The second quarter of 2017 has seen European bisphenol A (BPA) prices following a downtrend in both the spot and contract markets, as the pillars supporting firmer prices were removed. Firstly, April saw a triple-digit decrease in upstream phenol and benzene’s contract prices, and secondly, the second quarter has seen an increase in import activity in Europe, with Asian volumes returning to the market. Nevertheless, demand for BPA in Europe has been strong in the second quarter, with good demand coming from both the polycarbonate and the epoxy resins sectors. With imported material covering any shortfall in European supplies and strong demand for downstream sectors, supply and demand dynamics where well balanced by the opening weeks of June. BPA market participants continue to look to Asia, with the expectation that developments in the Asian market may determine the direction of the European market and the attractiveness of Europe to Asian sellers.
