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 Q3 2020
Regional output is expected to hold broadly constant, with most regional plants already back to normal operations since end-Q2. There are also no foreseeable plant turnarounds scheduled in the near term. But spot availabilities may increase in the region as China MA makers may divert more cargoes to overseas export markets, to make up for poor domestic sales.
As requirements for UPR, which is a major downstream product for MA, typically slows down during the summer months in China, this is expected to weigh on the offtake of MA in Q3. Other macro-level considerations such as a possible second wave of infections and uncertainties about longer-term global economic growth could also further dampen demand for MA.
