ABSTRACT
The article reports on the growth outlook for the European phenolic resins sector as of June 12, 2006. According to David Price of Hexion Speciality Chemicals, total market growth until 2009 was likely to be below general economic growth levels with the only increase seen in the insulation sector. Innovation and aggressive marketing would also be necessary to improve business, including the use of phenol in fuel additives. Global acetone prices meanwhile, were expected to remain depressed in the near term. INSET: PHENYL FAMILY.
