Updated to Q1 2017
European styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) contract prices increased by varying triple-digit amounts depending on account in January. Factors in support of passing on more than monomer cost increase for January to downstream SBR buyers include a persistent shortage in European spot material caused by material heading to Asia where European sellers can sell at much higher prices and increased production costs. In February SBR contracts rose extensively due to the 49% month-on-month increase in the February butadiene (BD) monthly contract price settlement. Contracts settled at an average price hike of €500/tonne depending on starting point and account. This was the largest month-on-month increase seen in the market since SBR contracts moved from a quarterly to a monthly basis, according to ICIS data. At the beginning of March, SBR spot prices were stable for the first time since the start of 2017 after rapid hikes. In the contract market, talks began after BD settled at a triple digit hike in March and early SBR contracts were thus agreed at triple digit increases, some talks are ongoing. Demand has increased in the first quarter of this year compared to the end of last year.
