In US, ACN spot plunged from over a two-year high amid thin trading and on expectation that April propylene contract price could drop. However, no export cargo was available. Acrylonitrile export price fell from over a two-year high, assessed US$40 a ton FOB USG down on the week.

In Europe, ACN spot supply remained absent and prices remained unmoved.
