The article presents information related to maleic anhydride (MA) market. MA prices have seen a rapid rise, following supply shortages, which have left industry stocks extremely low. More than half of MA goes into unsaturated polyester resins, found in building panels and vehicle bodies. Industry sources predict that the market will remain tight, at least for the remainder of the third quarter of 2006, and there is talk of more hikes along the line.
