This will probably be something like the Sumitomo explosion back in the early 90s... that caused RAM prices to triple overnight, even though they had a 6 month supply of the materials sitting in a lot by the factory, and chip makers had 6~9 month supplies on hand, too.

Expect diaper prices to triple now.

Okay... Is one facility the sole provider of this chemical, which will have global repercussions on a competitive consumer product?

According to the link, no:

Nippon Shokubai is one of the world's biggest makers of acrylic acid, the main ingredient of a resin called SAP, which is used in diapers.

The plant produces about 20 percent of the world's SAP and 10 percent of global output of acrylic acid.

Operations at the plant are likely to be halted for a long time and other makers of SAP resins are operating on a full-production footing, leaving little room for back-up production, the Nikkei business daily said on Sunday.


However, I'm betting that prices are going to spike pretty hard on acrylic acid, if this joint was making a tenth of the world's supply--that stuff is a really fundamental chemical feedstock. There's going to be a lot of companies hard up for starting materials.

Japan invented the "Just-in-Time" supply chain. You could have predicted that diapers would be its downfall, because God has a sense of humor.
