ABSTRACT
The article reports on the increase in freely negotiated phthalic anhydride contracts in Europe in April 2007. Rising raw material costs and a spate of supply issues have seen the majority of contracts climb €50 to 90/tonne. Buyers on freely negotiated contracts that settled at the €50/tonne mark say they expect to be hit by further hikes, over and above any raw material cost increases, in May 2007. Also behind the price hikes were the planned and unplanned outages in March and April.
