Shifting tides in the global MMA and PMMA markets

Asian methyl methacrylate (MMA) spot prices started to increase in April, after plummeting since the end of 2014. Following suit, Europe MMA spot prices increased for the first time in April, after a yearlong downtrend.

The MMA market has reached a potential turning point, with the first signs of upward pressure in the markets in some time. The question is, what will be the impact of firming prices in Asia on the European MMA and downstream polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) markets. Is there potential for imports from Asia, that have weighed on European prices for so long, to fall as the global MMA tides start to shift?
