Updated to Q3 2017
As has been the case all year, US melamine supply was steady during the third quarter, with no production issues seen at Cornerstone Chemical, the only melamine producer in the US. Melamine imports rose by 14% during the first seven months of 2017, from the same period the previous year. From January through July, imports from Trinidad were up by 74% year on year, while imports from Japan were 2½ times higher than the previous year.
US melamine demand has been strong all year, which is the main reason why exports have fallen. US melamine exports during the first seven months of 2017 were down by 46% year on year. As a result, more domestic supply was available in the market. Year on year, export volumes to key destinations fell sharply from January through July: to Brazil, almost eight times lower; to the UK, over five times lower; to Romania, almost five times lower.
