Updated to Q1 2017
European methyl methacrylate (MMA) prices firmed throughout the first quarter, against a backdrop of supply constraints, rising demand and a global shortage of product. Buyers cannot obtain enough material to meet demand, which will result in some halting production on a lack of raw material. Buyers are exploring all avenues to try to secure product, but with supply short globally, available material is sparse. Lucite International and Evonik have implemented sales controls in Europe in the first quarter. A number of Lucite customers said their volumes for March had been significantly reduced; some received half of their expected volumes for the month. As all producers are focusing on trying to fulfil contractual agreements, there was little relief for additional volumes to be found in Europe. The impact of the supply constraints can been seen throughout the chain, with requests from end-users increasing for some MMA buyers. This highlights that some MMA buyers are unable to offer the normal levels of goods.
ICIS has been reporting on the methyl methacrylate (MMA) market since 1990 and publishes the report on Fridays.
We have a quarterly contract price on standard-grade polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), which is quoted in euro per kilogramme, with a conversion to dollar per metric tonne.
The report includes the quarterly feedstock price for MMA, also in euro per metric tonne, with a conversion to cents per pound.
Both assessments are quoted on a free delivered (FD) northwest Europe (NWE) basis.
ICIS assesses PMMA on resin and sheet form, and the prices assessments are based on information gathered from consumers, traders and producers.
The weekly report includes commentary, with a focus on traced transactions, supply-demand balance dynamics, export and import information, contract price negotiations and general sentiment for price direction.
As well as coverage on the key Asia markets, there is extensive coverage on the upstream MMA industry and general market intelligence.
By subscribing to our PMMA report, our customers are able to make informed decisions with confidence.
