Updated to Q1 2018
US butyl acetate (butac) supply was largely balanced with supply during Q1, as the market had fully recovered from the supply constraints that lingered into Q4 2017. Supply to customers was also hindered by persistent transportation logistics issues that were exacerbated by Hurricane Harvey’s onslaught in the US Gulf, but had existed before the storm. Too few drivers limited truck transport and congested rail traffic.
US demand steadily gained momentum during Q1, with supply generally keeping pace. The gradually improving demand was driven by the lead-up to the US spring paints and coatings season and positive economic sentiment which was reflected in the predominant downstream coatings market. Sources described the market as consistently healthy, despite some recurrent severe ice storms, including a rare winter storm that briefly interrupted supply in the US Gulf coast region.
