Updated to Q2 2021
Providing demand remains stable, market will continue to be tight on nylon 6 and 6,6 and could become even tighter than in Q1 as another unexpected production outage emerged at the turn of the quarters, with BASF declaring force majeure on low viscosity nylon 6 grades from Antwerp, Belgium site following a fire. Moreover, feedstock availability continues to be tight due to reduced operating rates at refineries during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The outlook for demand in Q2 is pointing to ongoing strength, with order books reportedly stretching as far as May and, in the case of more specialised grades, buyers were already heard to be looking as far ahead as June. There continues to be some uncertainty on the back of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and shortage of various chemicals is a concern, but an overall market sentiment is positive.
