Updated to Q2 2018
US butyl acetate (butac) supply was mostly snug during the second quarter of 2018, helping push values up by 7-8 cents/lb ($154-176/tonne). Also keeping supply at somewhat strained levels was increasingly strong seasonal demand. Feedstock propylene began the quarter with a nominal increase for April but gained momentum during the period. Transportation logistics problems continued to keep supply stressed, as a trucker shortage stymied the delivery of raw materials and extended delivery times to customers.
US butac demand remained strong throughout the height of the second-quarter’s US spring paint and coatings season, the strongest demand period of the year. Winter storms that inhibited some of the usual early-year build in solvents demand had dissipated by April. For some paint makers, the spring coatings season brought more business than was projected, but as summer began, others described butac and downstream architectural coatings demand as very strong, but weaker than last spring.
