The article reports on the concern raised by most producers over anticipated increases in prices of maleic anhydride (MA) in Europe in the third quarter of 2007. It notes that most producers in the market cited increased feedstock prices as the factor that contributes to the trend. According to one producer, a growth of 7 to 8 percent on maleic contracts during the quarter would be realistic, given current feedstock levels.
