Acrylonitrile prices in Asian markets were stable to higher on the week as demand resurged while supply was likely to reduce as Secco will shut its 260,000 ton a year plant for a month beginning 15 August while Taekwang moved turnaround earlier to 24 July.

In US, acrylonitrile assessment had increased steadily since 22 March but recorded its first week-on-week decline since 16 February. Buyers did not appear willing to pay more, but sellers have sought higher due to firm production costs. Acrylonitrile export assessment slipped US$10 a ton FOB USG.

In Europe, acrylonitrile prices were held firm at possible ceiling on sustained Asian demand while there was marginal effect on demand from UK referendum.
