Updated to Q3 2021
The supply of nylon 6 and nylon 6,6 will remain tight in Q3 as the availability of various upstream material will remain limited until refineries ramp up their operating rates. Force majeures are ongoing in the nylon 6, upstream capro and nylon 6,6 supply chains, where a severe shortage of feedstock ADN and tight ADA supply will continue to have a negative effect on output.
Stable demand is expected in Q3. August is traditionally a slow month when parts of Europe halt production, but this year could be different as coronavirus restrictions are lifted. In addition, as supply has been persistently below demand in the last few months, stock levels are low across the supply chain. As a result, there could be more restocking than in a typical trading year.
