Ethanolamines supply in Asia was mixed for the third quarter, amid fluctuations in upstream markets. China’s preliminary announcement for antidumping duties (ADD) on imports was seen as a key factor affecting trade flow. More cargoes from affected suppliers were shifted away from China, raising spot availability for other parts of Asia. In China, manufacturers opted to moderate production in view of filled inventories and low offtake. Rising ethylene oxide (EO) costs also translated to squeezed margins locally.
Nylon 6,6 demand has been firm mainly stemming from the ongoing tightness in supply. For nylon 6, demand has not been as strong, especially during the summer time slowdown during the holiday period. There was some doubt surrounding the strength of demand in the automotive sector but opinions are varied. The current political and macroeconomic landscape is also painting an uncertain picture of the markets. Substitution trends away from using nylon 6,6 to using more readily available nylon 6 material has been highlighted but this is not widespread.
