Updated to Q3 2018
Supply of US monopropylene glycol (MPG) in the third quarter of 2018 was generally good, but not abundant. The market is still recovering from supply disruptions in 2017 from Hurricane Harvey, which brought record rainfall and flooding to the US Gulf coast region. One producer was relatively tight early in the quarter following a short outage at a plant in mid-June. There was some slight tightening near the end of the quarter as a major producer was heard to be undergoing a turnaround in September.
US monopropylene glycol (MPG) demand in the third quarter was steady-to-strong, largely from the unsaturated polyester resins (UPR) sector. Some sellers described volumes early in the quarter as similar to the previous year. Demand began to pick up midway through the quarter as producers were seeing increased buying from the de-icing and antifreeze sectors. Buyers for the de-icing sector began procuring supply in August, likely because inventories were drawn down after an extended winter last year.
