What A Difference A Year Makes! Will Acrylonitrile Overcapacity Be Seen Again?
Changes have been seen in the acrylonitrile industry in recent months. A number of new capacity announcements in China is raising the question of the market balance in 2019/2020. If too much capacity is added, average utilisation rates could fall dramatically again. Even recently, the forecast was for a tightening market through 2020 due to limited new capacity coupled to steady demand growth from all derivatives (except acrylicfibre). The recent announcements have changed the outlook.
Operating rates of acrylonitrile plants have been creeping up following five depressed years caused by capacity being added ahead of demand. Operating rates are expected to approach 90% in 2018, but timing of new capacity startups in the 2019-2021 is key for the industry.
Will the significant new capacity planned in China be built and depress operating rates again, or will capacity come onstream at the right time to support the market?
The Acrylonitrile, Derivatives and Fibres Conference 2017 will address these key issues, as well as:
- How will the ABS/SAN market develop? Will the impressive growth continue?
- What are the prospects for acrylic fibre? Is there any upside?
- What are the drivers of strong growth from acrylamide?
- What are the prospects for nylon 66 and its raw materials? Will acrylonitrile based adiponitrile capacity be added?
- Is there optimism still surrounding carbon fibre?
- How will the smaller acrylonitrile derivatives fare in the next years?
