Polymer Prices Standard Thermoplastics

POLYMER PRICES
Standard Thermoplastics Trend May 2019: Producers' hopes of significant margin gains are not fulfilled / Demand remains too subdued for large increases
14.05.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Polypropylene April 2019: Producers' gains modest / Demand still soft after Easter / Auto weakness brakes compounds / Cost rise will pull prices up in May
06.05.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Polyethylene April 2019: Producers manage to halt margin decline / Reports of first margin increases too / Signs point upward for May due to rising costs, dwindling supply and livelier demand
06.05.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Styrenics April 2019: Prices continue uptrend / Margins slightly below cost change / Subdued demand for PS and ABS / Slight increases likely in May
06.05.2019
POLYMER PRICES
PVC April 2019: Pro-rata ethylene reference passed on in most cases / Sufficient quantities available despite isolated production bottlenecks / Cost development points to a rise in May
03.05.2019
TURKEY
Spot prices rise in first quarter / Plastics imports increase at the start of 2019 / Currency weakness unsettles markets / Subdued polymers consumption in 2018 due to recession
18.04.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Standard Thermoplastics Trend April 2019: Prices rise further / Higher monomer costs are main driver / Unscheduled plant outages bring additional upward thrust to polyolefins
12.04.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Polyethylene March 2019: Price hikes largely confined to passing on of costs / Supply and demand generally balanced / Uptrend will increase in April due to maintenance work
03.04.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Polypropylene March 2019: Weak demand curbs price momentum / Cost movement remains yardstick / Moderate rises likely in April
03.04.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Styrenics March 2019: Prices continue uptrend / Hikes often below cost increases / Processors increasingly fall back to inventories / Further price increases likely
03.04.2019
POLYMER PRICES
PVC March 2019: Rather subdued demand hinders producers' margin wishes / Signs pointing to a rise in April
01.04.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Standard Thermoplastics Trend March 2019: Producers hope for improvement in margins following C2 cost increase / PE and PVC consumers respond by holding back on buying / Subdued demand caps PP increases / Styrenics firmer
13.03.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Polypropylene February 2019: Producers' hikes falter / Slack demand leads to weak rollover / Increases hardly avoidable in March
05.03.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Polyethylene February 2019: Complete lack of stimulus / Rollover dominates the picture / Price increases probable in March
05.03.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Styrenics February 2019: Prices bottom out / Slight increases for polystyrene / Processors stock up inventories / Players expect bull market to begin in March
05.03.2019
POLYMER PRICES
PVC February 2019: Most contracts settled at rollovers / Production curtailments not causing any major upheavals / Call-offs normal despite the low season / Increases predicted for March
04.03.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Standard Thermoplastics Trend February 2019: Polyolefins and PVC see stability / Increases for polystyrene / Demand largely normal / Adequate availability for most materials / Supply shortage with PS
12.02.2019
CORRECTION - POLYMER PRICES
Styrenics January 2019: EPS and ABS fall only slightly / Even smaller discounts on PS / Inventories being replenished / Buying opportunities in February / New grade in PIE reports – grey EPS insulation
05.02.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Polyethylene January 2019: Cost reduction generally factored in / A few producers manage to retain part of it / Demand picks up slowly in the new year / With stable costs in February, situation expected to gradually return to normal
05.02.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Polypropylene January 2019: Producers improve margins / End markets still weak / Outages and Brexit stimulate ordering / Moderate hikes in February
05.02.2019
POLYMER PRICES
PVC January 2019: High-volume purchases reflect reduction in C2 costs / Demand robust for the season / No restrictions on production / Rollover expected for February
04.02.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Standard Thermoplastics Trend January 2019: Notations continue to crumble / Many producers unwilling to factor in cost reductions in full / Stabilisation in sight despite uncertain demand situation
15.01.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Polyethylene December 2018: Producers manage to hang on to some of the cost reduction / First step towards margin improvement successful / Costs again decrease in January / Further reductions possible
04.01.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Polypropylene December 2018: Producers improve margins / Cost relief not passed on in full / FMs tighten supply / January will see falling prices
04.01.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Styrenics December 2018: Prices still in full downswing / Further triple-digit discounts / Producers pass on cost reductions only partly / Short production month severely limits demand
