PMMA market sees moderated price increases. In April, European PMMA prices rose moderately, buffered by less upstream pressure, despite continued PMMA shortages driving prices up.

All PMMA grades, including high impact and extrusion types, experienced slight price increases. Market stability is expected to continue improving.

Short-term PMMA price increases are expected to slow. Improved Asian imports and stabilized upstream costs will likely lead to market equilibrium.

Despite minor seasonal increases, overall PMMA demand is weak. The automotive and construction sectors particularly show no significant recovery signs.

Emerging signs of supply chain improvement, especially in MMA, are noted. This could lead to more balanced market conditions in upcoming months.
