ICIS has a network of locally based reporters providing coverage of regional Melamine markets. They provide not just pricing information, but an in-depth understanding of the factors driving prices and market fluctuations.
Updated to Q2 2020
Melamine supply in China in Q2 is expected to remain unchanged as China’s melamine plants will keep their rates at the similar levels as Q1 amid the oversupply. However, one Japanese plant is expected to have a turnaround in April, but the reduced supply will be offset by the restart of India’s state-owned melamine plants by mid-April.
Downstream demand in Q2 will be likely to improve if the coronavirus is contained globally. More downstream plants are expected to restore operations by May, which may lead to an increasing consumption for feedstock. However, uncertainty also remains if the coronavirus situation worsens.
