US MTBE finds competition for Latin American markets

With Justin Schneewind and Colleen Barry-Goodman

October 02, 2015 11:05:08 EST (5:54)

The US MTBE market has been shaken by some big news this year, and the fourth quarter could see an uptick of demand as South America heads into its summer. The US Gulf Coast MTBE market saw strong demand for MTBE for gasoline blending during the summer, as well as some competition from Asian product in the Latin American markets, as Justin Schneewind, senior pricing specialist, tells Colleen Barry-Goodman, managing editor for Americas petrochemicals, aromatics and solvents. They evaluate prices, export trends from the US, and whether Latin America can have sustained demand growth into Q4 and beyond.
