Updated to Q2 2017
European methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) prices were stable-to-soft overall in Q2, but did not begin to fall towards the levels seen earlier in the year.
Prices fell in late April on slightly weaker demand due to fewer working days as a result of the Easter holiday period, as well as availability trending in a longer direction. In May, however, the situation was mostly stable with only one price decrease seen towards the end of the month. The market in June was regarded as stable-to-soft as MEK availability began to improve, which might cause spot prices to trend towards levels seen in early 2017.
However, market players do not expect any dramatic price drop in the short term due to the balanced supply and demand situation. Downstream consumption in the construction and paints and coatings industry is still high due to the stronger European economy.
