Daily Chemical Reaction


Cooking for Recovery, Eating Disordered; Caustic Soda & Propylene Thoughts; Other Industry Items

Key Points:

  • We provide our takeaways from following multiple corporate releases (Covestro, Enterprise Products, Sherwin Williams, Shin-Etsu & Worley).
  • We discuss caustic soda and propylene pricing, and we see any 2Q US contract price support in these two products as likely to be short-lived.
  • Other items of note today range from oil-and-gas commentary, to supply-chain items of note, to declining new ship orders amid trade uncertainties
