The article predicts that the prevailing tightness in the global methyl methacrylate (MMA) monomer market could increase in 2007 and remain in place until 2008, according to a U.S. producer. The supply deficit may intensify, with maintenance outages that are scheduled at large-scale plants in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan in the coming months. The liquid crystal display (LCD) market is a key driver for the MMA industry.
