Updated to Q1 2018
Asia’s availability of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) was squeezed in Q1, on the back of limited inventories and multi-year supply shortages. While one of the two new facilities in Saudi Arabia produced some PMMA volumes in the period, certain goods were diverted to the West. As a result, the impact on supply was perceived by sources to be somewhat restricted. Firmer costs and supply tightness in upstream methyl methacrylate (MMA) sector were among key factors for higher PMMA spot prices in the quarter.
Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) demand was fairly buoyant in Q1, particularly in the automotive market. Most users in the lighting, sheet-making and household sectors preferred to operate on a need-to basis in order to sustain business operations, adjusting purchase volumes slightly from time to time. Buyers remained wary in view of the bullish market sentiment and strong feedstock prices. A few users explored the possibility of substitutes such as polystyrene (PS) in the quarter.
