Outages Raise Acrylate Monomer Prices Again

Andy Extance – Feb 7, 2011

Acrylate adhesive producers found their raw material needs frustrated again in the second half of 2010 as more monomer manufacturing outages reared their ugly head. Unfortunately there is likely to be yet more bad news, as industry analysts are predicting ongoing supply constraints and continued high prices in 2011 – but acrylate formulators are not alone in this. How much prices rise for raw materials needed by different adhesive materials systems will differ as the economic recovery continues. That variation in turn will determine how competitive the companies that are specialising in these different adhesive systems will be – and therefore is something that all adhesive producers should be watching keenly as we proceed through the year.
