Updated to Q4 2017
In early Q4, nylon 6 supply in Europe began to balance after LANXESS went into a planned turnaround for much of October. Healthy demand through November and atypically strong demand from the engineering plastics and compounding sectors in December contributed to tightening conditions as the quarter ended. New plants were opened by Grupa Azoty and UBE during the quarter, significantly increasing nameplate capacity in Europe. The plants, however, both took until the end of the quarter to fully ramp-up, and new material was not seen in the market.
Demand for nylon 6 in Europe was healthy overall in Q4. The market witnessed stable demand for the majority of October and November. A slight weakening was felt by certain players, however, as buying appetite was subdued from the fibre and textile sectors for much of the quarter. Nonetheless, unusually strong demand in December, primarily due to healthy buying appetite in the engineering plastics and compounding sectors, meant that overall demand increased in the quarter.
