Producers in key exporting market in Asia, China, kept lower operation rates to balance off lukewarm demand amid high cost. From May-June, acetic acid spiked on tight supply and some etac makers had challenges procuring the raw materials. Some etac makers also lowered operation for the short term on environmental inspections in China. A southeast Asian producer experienced an outage for about a month due to upstream’s feedstock supply issues, and has been operating at low rate since end May.
Demand has been flat and slow in the China market, likely due to downstream plant operations affected by environmental inspections. Some northeast Asian markets saw some improvement in uptake but the demand was largely slower than expected from the paint and coating sectors. In southeast Asia, demand was affected in some markets for the month-long Ramadan observances, which ended in mid-June with the Eid ul-Fitr holiday. The seasonal demand lull started at the end of the second quarter.
