Updated to Q4 2020
Q4 is poised to see a continuation of the tight market conditions seen in the second half of Q3, as operating rates at a major European producer remain capped due to technical issues, and while two smaller producers are under maintenance for the first half of the month. Imports from Asia have been announced fewer as the region is addressing a surge in demand from the construction sector.
Demand in Q4 remains strong. The automotive sector is reviving while the construction sector is forecast to enjoy a longer peak season this year. Participants speak of increased demand across the board of applications. Buyers are lifting more than their minimal contractual commitments for the first time since Q1 this year. While most players do not expect to recoup losses in Q2, a few participants forecast their Q3-Q4 demand will make up for losses in Q2.
