Updated to Q4 2017
US nylon 6 and nylon 6,6 supplies improved but remained constrained in Q4 2017 as producers began rebuilding inventories impacted by the effects of hurricane Harvey in the US Gulf region. Although multiple nylon intermediates producers in the Gulf restarted production in Q4, thus alleviating immediate supply concerns, supply levels remained tight alongside strong global demand for product. Moreover, decreased production in China associated with environmental regulations put further pressure on US supplies amid increased foreign demand for product.
US nylon 6 and nylon 6,6 demand increased in Q4 2017 amid steady growth in a number of end-use sectors, including fibres, amid the winter high season. Demand was further bolstered by tight supply in the US market as producers continued to recover inventories impacted by hurricane Harvey in the US Gulf region. Moreover, environmental regulations in China continued to put upward pressure on demand amid decreased production capacity in the country due to environmental concerns.
