Auto Industry

New auto sales is a leading indicator for availability of raw materials. When sales are high, both up stream and down stream materials are at a supply risk. However, when sales are low, the co-products/by-products are at a supply risk.

Co-products/By-products: At risk when autosales are low

Acetonitrile (by-product of acrylonitrile)
Ammonium Sulfate (by-product of nylon)
HCl (by-product of polyurethane/TDI and Titanium Hydroxide)
Iron sulfate (by product of Titanium Hydroxide)
Sodium Hydroxide (by product of PVC via Chlorine Gas)
