European epichlorohydrin (ECH) has remained tight throughout the second quarter. While one captive ECH producer carried out maintenance, imported material from Asia did not pick up enough to meet demand. Suppliers chose to implement prices reflecting feedstock settlements rather than market fundamentals as prices continued to climb throughout the first half of the year. This has provided some respite for buyers on the downstream epoxy resins market trying to preserve margins from falling prices and higher upstream costs.
Demand has remained consistent for ECH throughout the second quarter. Imported material has remained short in Europe, leaving buyers little choice about where to get material. The softening felt in the epoxy resins market is yet to reverberate back upstream, and bisphenol A (BPA) spot prices have climbed even more dramatically than those on the ECH market. ECH demand was aided by prices following feedstock movements, rather than reflecting market fundamentals. Alternative downstream markets provided more consistent demand.
