After the market rebounded, the sustainability of high price transactions was not strong.

Supply and demand side:

As of April 17th, the production capacity utilization rate of isooctyl acrylate enterprises remained low, the on-site spot supply had decreased, and the pressure on enterprise shipments was relatively small; From a demand perspective, there had been an increase in downstream terminal demand, with actual orders mainly negotiated.

Market outlook

It is expected that the market for isooctyl acrylate will stabilize next week, and some manufacturers are still in the equipment maintenance season. The impact of raw materials on isooctyl acrylate will strengthen, and downstream weak demand may deepen. Meanwhile, the inventory of isooctyl acrylate enterprises is relatively low, and the quotation may remain high, indicating a stable overall market operation.
