The article reports on the increase of phenol/acetone production in Europe in 2007. The production capacity will possibly increase by nineteen percent. There is growing speculation about whether domestic and export markets will take the new volumes or whether increased output could lead to oversupply. Buyers are confident that pricing will be based more on lengthy supply rather than expensive upstream costs.
