LONDON (ICIS)--European methyl methacrylate (MMA) supply is easing and prices softening after two years of supply constraints.

Melissa Hurley interviews Katherine Sale on the expectations and drivers for the rest of 2018, examining global maintenance shutdowns and the impact of new capacities on trade flows.
