Updated to Q4 2017
US butyl acetate (butac) supply was constrained through much of the fourth quarter because volume constraints imposed after Hurricane Harvey disrupted production and transportation logistics in the US Gulf Coast. While transport issues took longer to resolve – and still exist at pre-storm levels, sources say – production began to resume and volume constraints began to ease late in the quarter.
US demand for butac increased sharply after Hurricane Harvey, but mostly due to scarcity rather than organic demand growth. The need for material to meet typical requirements heightened immediately, but the storm fostered unusually healthy demand until late in the quarter when the seasonal lull surrounding the US Thanksgiving holiday, as well as Christmas and New Year’s break, got underway.
