In the caustic soda (NaOH) market, manufacturers have announced a price increase for deliveries from October 2019.
According to representatives of the NaOH industry, the trend of the past quarters of decreasing prices is not expected to continue in the fourth quarter. They anticipate a balanced demand and supply sitation on the NaOH market in the coming weeks and months. Reduced import volumes will contribute to this, say players talking to EUWID. Buyers expect minor price adjustments or a rollover as a result of the current negotiations.
