The article reports on the methyl methacrylate (MMA) market as of May 2006. After a 2006 first quarter blighted by oversupply, MMA sellers are now seeing an improvement in market dynamics. Contracts in Europe rolled over in second quarter, but there is some speculation that by the third quarter there may be some potential for a price increase, particularly if the market becomes shorter globally. MMA producers have been pressured by rising feedstocks, and are keen to improve margins.
