The article offers an outlook of the styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) market in Europe for the fourth quarter of 2006. SBR contracts look set to rise on the back of high feedstock costs and tight supply. Sellers are targeting a €100/ton ($127) hike on the third quarter settlement, and although buyers say that such a rise is unrealistic, they concede that increases will be seen. Consumers admit that they are likely to agree to an increase of €40-60/ton.
