For the Quarter Ending June 2023


North America


For the Quarter ending June 2023, Ethylene Acrylic Elastomer (AEM) prices showed a consistent increase in the USA market, driven by the strong market performance of the automotive industry. Concerns about the impact of rising interest rates on consumer spending remained high, but recent data suggests that consumers were comfortable spending large sums of money. The automotive industry faced acute semiconductor shortages in the first half of the year amid supply concerns that delayed mass assembly until the situation stabilized in the second half of the year. The combination of better supply and rising consumer demand led to strong growth into the second fiscal quarter. External factors such as the bankruptcy of two large financial institutions in the last quarter of the year had a negative effect on the second quarter of the year, but a temporary suspension of the national debt ceiling prevented a recession. The consumer price index in the United States increased by 0.1% in May after a significant rise in April. Consequently, the assessed price of Ethylene Acrylic Elastomer (AEM) MV 16.5-18.5 was USD 14100/MT FOB USGC in June.




Ethylene acrylic elastomer prices were initially stagnant in Asian markets but started to rise in the second half of Q2 2023. Ethylene Acrylic Elastomer (AEM) prices have continued their upward trend in recent months amid the ever-increasing demands of the downstream automotive industry in the Indian market. Additionally, dealers were being manipulated to raise prices even higher as inventories in the region dwindled due to rising consumer spending rates. In addition, as the region's Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) continues to rise and the demand for electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) continues to grow, foreign investors are expected to enter the market to strengthen the auto industry further of investments are attracted to the region. In the Indian market, ethylene acrylic elastomer (AEM) prices rose in June, supported by expensive imports, and increased downstream demand. India, an import-driven market, relies on US exports to meet the demand for AEM, and as its AEM prices in the US market soared, Indian suppliers sourced their products at higher prices. According to the Federation of Automobile Dealers Associations (FADA), Indian auto retail sales rose 10% in June compared to the same month last year. As the Indian automotive industry performed well in the market, the consumption of AEMs increased, which ultimately led to increased demand. Hence, the assessed price of Ethylene Acrylic Elastomer (AEM) MV 16.5-18.5 was USD 15246.26/MT CFR JNPT in India in June 2023.
