The prices of acrylonitrile (ACN) surged up in global markets during the last fortnight ending January 31, 2014, compared to the previous fortnight ending January 15.
 
In Asian markets, acrylonitrile prices increased due to limited product availability coupled with firm feedstock prices.

In Far East Asia, too, acrylonitrile prices showed a trend similar to Southeast Asian markets, and on February 8, 2014, ACN prices were assessed at $2000/ton in both Southeast and Far East Asian markets.
 
In the US market, acrylonitrile prices inched up by 1.89 percent in the last fortnight to $1885/ton, as compared to $1850/ton in the previous fortnight, due to firm energy market.
