Recent Polymer Price Reports
Composites/GRP November 2019
Resins surprisingly stable / Heftier rebates likely in December / Glass fibre prices on the shaky side
Engineering Thermoplastics November 2019
Downward drift continues / Notations crumble, but not in one fell swoop / No interruption to market weakness / Price pressure expected to dominate in December
Polyethylene November 2019
Fall in feedstock reference price determines the reductions / Nearly all products follow suit / Film grades suffer from poor demand / Rollover likely in December despite slightly firmer ethylene price
Polypropylene November 2019
Lower reference has repercussions along the chain / Demand remains weak / Players may take half of December off
Styrenics November 2019
Prices continue to fall / Some reductions for PS and EPS exceed styrene cost decline / Oversupply dominates market / Further decreases likely
PVC November 2019
Ethylene reference sets the price span / Pro rata reductions have to be passed on / No margin improvement for producers / Depressed situation in the very short working month of December
Base Petrochemicals, Aromatics and Feedstocks
November/December 2019
PET November 2019
Erosion of notations continues unabated / Oversupply boosted by imports / Price pressure continuing on into December

New categories for petrochemicals

The important role petrochemical feedstocks and other starting materials play in price developments for polymers is becoming increasingly evident. To reflect this, PIE is now tracking and publishing both contract and monthly average spot prices for the most important petrochemicals. In addition, we will analyse the volatility of spot prices as well as the level of supply and demand.

Separate tables for Feedstocks (ethylene, propylene, styrene, paraxylene) and Base Chemicals / Aromatics (oil, naphtha, benzene) will bring market developments into the spotlight.
