The article reports on the surge of butanediol prices in China after the Chinese New Year holidays. The author said that the surge was caused by renewed buying interest and tightness. Buyers re-entered the market to find that there were limited cargoes available after weeks of reduced purchasing prior the holiday season. The tight supply was caused by reduced imports due to production problems in Taiwan and the Middle East.
