Updated to Q4 2017
US ethylbenzene supply was tight during the fourth quarter following production disruptions for feedstocks ethylene and benzene due to the late-August Hurricane Harvey. While many outages resolved in the third quarter, several olefins production units remained offline into November and one into December. Meanwhile, benzene supply continued to be affected by low refinery operating rates into late November. As outages resolved, ethylbenzene feedstock availability improved late in the quarter.
US ethylbenzene demand was hampered in the fourth quarter amid lower export levels and higher import levels for downstream styrene. US ethylbenzene is produced mainly for the manufacture of styrene, and most of it is used captively. During the first 10 months of 2017, US styrene exports dropped by 16% from the previous year, or by 294,695 tonnes. Additionally, US styrene imports were up by 22%, or by 97,066 tonnes, from January through October year on year.
