ABSTRACT
The article presents an outlook for the methyl methacrylate industry (MMA). The MMA market has grown significantly since 2004, a year that producers say was marked by growth in consumption across all market segments worldwide, to about 2.7 million m.t. in 2006. Prices in the U.S. have increased nearly every quarter since early 2004, gaining a total of 25 cts-30 cts/lb in the U.S. In North America and Europe, a total of about 240,000 m.t./year of new capacity has been planned for the next few years.
