Updated to Q1 2018
US glycol ethers diethylene glycol monobutyl ether (DB), ethylene glycol monobutyl ether (EB), propylene glycol methyl ether (PM) and propylene glycol methyl ether acetate (PMA) supply pressure eased late in the first quarter of 2018 with the lifting of some volume constraints. Supply remained pressured, however, but rising buying interest ahead of the US spring paint and coating season. Supply to customers was also hindered by delays stemming from federal trucking regulations enacted in late 2015.
US glycol ethers demand steadily gained momentum during the first quarter of 2018 as paint blenders began preparing for the spring peak-demand season, particularly for architectural coatings. Supply mostly kept pace with demand, but lagged in some cases because of operational disruptions. As those constraints eased late in the quarter, buying interest continued to exert pressure on pricing, holding steady as the second quarter began.
