Polymer Prices Standard Thermoplastics

POLYMER PRICES
Standard thermoplastics at the beginning of September: Rises take hold on a broad front / PE and PVC up sharply, PP advances slowly / PS producers at last improve margins / EPS situation still dramatic
18.09.2006
POLYMER PRICES

19.01.2006
POLYMER PRICES
Standard thermoplastics in December: All notations lighter / PVC fares better than most polymers / Plentiful supplies exert pressure on prices / Suspenseful start to the New Year expected
05.01.2006
POLYMER PRICES
Standard thermoplastics in November: PVC rises again / PP still stable / PE softer / PS and EPS significantly lower / Producers will find it difficult to hold current price levels in December
15.12.2005
POLYMER PRICES
Standard thermoplastics at the beginning of December / PVC with rollover / PE, PS and EPS lose considerable ground / PP also weak / Inventories high and demand slack
15.12.2005
POLYMER PRICES
Standard thermoplastics at the beginning of November: Supply situation begins to normalise / PVC up again / Polyolefins stabilise at high level / PS and EPS tend slightly downward
17.11.2005
POLYMER PRICES
Standard thermoplastics in October: Polyolefin notations rise by a historic amount / PVC adds around EUR 100/t / PS and EPS rise more moderately / Announcements of further price increases
03.11.2005
POLYMER PRICES
Standard thermoplastics at the beginning of October: Markets tighter due to supply bottlenecks / Exorbitant price increases now the rule rather than the exception / No relaxation yet in sight
20.10.2005
POLYMER PRICES
Standard thermoplastics in September: Tight supply drives up prices for all commodities / Priority for converters is to secure supplies rather than negotiate on prices / Increases for October
06.10.2005
POLYMER PRICES
