CIF India assessment for butyl acrylate is now available in the ICIS Asia acrylic acid acrylate ester report

20 June 2016


Demand for butyl acrylate, mainly used in paints and coatings, is increasing following the growth of India’s infrastructure and construction sectors.

As production capacities remain huge in Asia for acrylic acid and acrylate esters, there will be more spot liquidity for cargoes into net-importing countries such as India, as various Asian producers try to sell cargoes into these countries.” says Paul Lim, author of the Asia acrylic acid and acrylate ester report.

With a market mainly driven by imported butyl acrylates cargoes, India has now emerged as a key country leading growth in Asian acrylic acid and acrylate esters.

ICIS has enhanced its Asian acrylic acid and pricing report by adding a butyl-acrylate CIF India (bulk) assessment to complement its coverage of the India markets.
