From pricing information to the analysis you need to understand it, ICIS coverage of regional Glycol ethers markets is second to none.
Updated to Q1 2021
US BG, BDG, PM and PMA supply may tighten during Q1 if the persistent coronavirus is not reined in by the rollout of new vaccines, with demand from cleansers, disinfectants and DIY coatings expected to remain major drivers. Broad economic uncertainty and the reality of unemployment levels, however, may keep year-on-year volumes either below or flat with 2019 levels. Truck-driver shortages are expected to continue to lengthen domestic delivery lead times and congest ports and railheads.
US BD, BDG, PM and PMA demand is expected to gain some momentum in Q1, driven largely by its traditional cleansers and coatings markets. Continued strength in the do-it-yourself (DIY) paint sector is likely for the near term, and coatings demand from homebuilding is likely to continue leading construction markets in the first quarter. Commercial construction projects, however, will gain momentum if coronavirus vaccines are successfully administered and coronavirus cases begin to diminish significantly.
