The article reports on the market for commodity chemicals. Speculation among European butadiene buyers ahead of third quarter contract negotiations favours keeping prices below €900 per tonne free delivered in northwest Europe, with targets heard as low as €850 per tonne. The market remained balanced throughout the peak spring season for production outages, undermining sellers' expectations that supply would tighten considerably in the second quarter.
