Polymer Prices Standard Thermoplastics

POLYMER PRICES
Standard Thermoplastics Trend September 2019: Reductions move PE and PVC prices towards cost target / PP producers improve their margins / Styrenics follow SM reference upwards
12.09.2019
POLYMER PRICES

04.09.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Polyethylene August 2019: Weak rollovers dominate despite small cost hike / Business a bit livelier but still slow / Lower ethylene reference for September points to price cuts

03.07.2019
POLYMER PRICES
PVC June 2019: Rollovers predominate on European market / No bottlenecks despite production curtailments / Exports on the increase / Declining costs and weak demand mean prices expected to fall
02.07.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Standard Thermoplastics Trend June 2019: Pressure on prices constantly rising / Polyolefins and PVC nevertheless remain stable in first third of month / Styrenics plummet along with SM / Subdued demand dominates the scene
14.06.2019
POLYMER PRICES

05.06.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Polypropylene May 2019: Producers make slight margin gains / Little impetus to buy / Automotive slump still dogs compounds / Signs point to weak rollover in June
05.06.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Styrenics May 2019: Prices rise slightly again / Processors order only essential volumes / Suppliers lessened hikes during the month / Significant price correction expected in June
05.06.2019
POLYMER PRICES
PVC May 2019: Producers only succeed in upping margins slightly / Maintenance season not causing significant bottlenecks so far / Producer asking prices not necessarily going to be pushed through in June either
04.06.2019
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
