The article reports that buyers conceded to the recent European bisphenol A (BPA) settlement hikes due to the limited availability and the strong pull on supply from Asia. Buyers argued though that the increases are not justified in view of the February 2007 benzene settlement, which was down by €98/tonne from January 2007, at €722/ tonne. The European BPA market is expected to tighten further, due to raw material shortages.
