The article offers an analysis of the trends in the Asian fibers market, with focus on acrylonitrile (ACN), monoethylene glycol (MEG), purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and caprolactam. ACN prices rose steadily in March 2007 as a result of tight supply and strong demand from the Chinese market. MEG and PET prices have slightly changed between December 2006 and February 2007.
