Updated to Q2 2017
In Asia, spot prices for ethyl acetate (etac) in Q2 started to decline following lower feedstock acetic acid values. Etac prices dropped from $705/tonne FOB China in early April to $660/tonne FOB China in end May, representing a more than 6% drop. Ethyl acetate was largely oversupplied amid weak demand, and margins for etac producers had been weak as they lowered prices in order to offload cargoes. Some producers in China had adjusted their operating rates to 40-50% since earlier in the year. At the beginning of May, feedstock acetic acid prices in Asia jumped on tight supply. Talks of the rebound of etac prices emerged mid-to-end of May as producers could no longer absorb the increase in cost. China domestic prices started to inch up in mid-May. However, the export markets had been resistant to price hikes and only started to follow suit in early June, when spot prices rose to $675/tonne FOB China.
