Supply in the European melamine market lengthened in the fourth quarter, with local production running well. There was also an increase in imports from Asia and Qatar, which exerted downward pressure on spot pricing.
Demand traditionally softens towards the end of the fourth quarter, with levels in October and November steady. Players start to manage end-of-year inventory, with consumption lower because of this. Many downstream businesses close over the Christmas period, which reduces demand in December.
