Updated to Q1 2018
The European epichlorohydrin (ECH) market remained tight throughout Q1, as the scarcity of imported Asian material left the market unbalanced. Less Asian material was sold in Europe as producers were able to command a higher price from buyers in China. Hexion’s captive ECH line in Pernis was closed for six weeks for scheduled maintenance on 17 March. Although Hexion do not sell ECH, it meant there was less material available in Europe.
Demand for European ECH held strong in line with demand for downstream epoxy resins products. Buyers were able to obtain material but had to bear higher price increases than usual. Uncharacteristically, prices have begun to move on market fundamentals as opposed to the movement in key feedstock propylene. Market pressure had been building as demand remained steady while less material was available, resulting in price hikes throughout the quarter.
