The article reports on the price increase of epoxy resins in June 2006. Dow Chemical has already announced increases of €100-200/tonne from June, depending on contract. The increase is due to the rising feedstock costs, together with healthy demand. Crucially, the market is seen to be tightening, both in Europe and globally.
