Thank you for joining us at the EPCA
A heartfelt gratitude to all of you who joined us at EPCA 2023, we are thrilled to have had the opportunity to connect with you, to have insightful discussions and productive meetings.
Discussions at the conference showed a consensus that our markets are currently coping with a very intense economic cycle that is echoing throughout the European petrochemical complex. Methacrylate chemistry is not immune to that. Only through an open and constructive dialogue with our partners, our industry is able to have a resilient and structural position in the European markets.
However, this year’s market environment is not crippled by the high uncertainty and volatility the industry was facing in the previous year. We have now carefully digested the irrational feedstock environment of 2022 and, as an industry, have calibrated capital structures under a new interest rate environment.
We look ahead with confidence as we continue to invest in our LiMA technology and expand our efforts on delivering a truly sustainable product to our end consumers, tailored to their respective requirements. We officially launched MERACRYL® proTerra MMA at EPCA and resiliently aim to support our partners, as we are all transitioning jointly towards a carbon neutral market.
„Besides the globally challenging situation, Röhm is and continues to be a solidly embedded partner in the global Methacrylate market. We believe in a strong future of our methacrylate business. Local production, security of supply, competitiveness and sustainable solutions are and will be Röhm’s future strengths”, stated Hans-Detlef Luginsland, Senior Vice President Bulk Monomers.
