Standard Thermoplastics
POLYMER PRICES
Standard Thermoplastics Trend February 2018: Producers factor in feedstock cost increases to varying extents / Bigger rises with PVC and PP / Further hikes expected / Falling oil prices should ease situation a little
13.02.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Polypropylene January 2018: Cost increase transferred / Market trends tight / Significant boost for standards and compounds likely in February
05.02.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Polyethylene January 2018: Producers' demands find little favour / Market situation rarely allows more than rollover / Prices for LLD grades fall / Increased costs likely passed on in February
05.02.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Styrenics January 2018: Rollovers for PS and EPS / Moderate premiums on ABS / Solid demand at start of year / Strong increases likely in February / EPS players concerned
05.02.2018
POLYMER PRICES
PVC January 2018: Producers' demands mainly come to nothing / Lull in exports due to weak USD thwarts plans / Titanium dioxide driving up rigid compounds further / Increases in sight for February
02.02.2018
POLYMER PRICES
PET January 2018: Strong rollover / Asian imports thinning / Upward pressure intensifying / Increases expected in February
02.02.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Standard Thermoplastics Trend January 2018: Prices mainly following reference contracts for relevant feedstocks / Higher swings remain exception / Upward pressure having greatest effect on PP
15.01.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Polyethylene December 2017: Producers unable to pass on increased costs / Tactical buying neutralises hopes of hikes / Rollover dominates / Slight upward trend probable in January
04.01.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Polypropylene December 2017: Surprise surge for injection moulding / Film grade rolls over / Compounds follow propylene reference / Upward trend to continue in January
04.01.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Styrenics December 2017: Increasing costs again reversing price trend / Short supply of EPS and ABS persists / Only minor price movements likely in January
04.01.2018
POLYMER PRICES
PET December 2017: Small quantities catch up on price reductions / Trend otherwise increasingly upward / Imports thinning / January prices set to move sideways
03.01.2018
POLYMER PRICES
PVC December 2017: Notations mainly stagnating / Suppliers intend to recover margin losses in January / Threat from exports / Titanium dioxide providing upward push on PVC-U
03.01.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Standard Thermoplastics Trend December 2017: Stability predominates / At most only minor price hikes / Producers unable to factor in feedstock cost increases in full / Converters under no pressure to act
14.12.2017
POLYMER PRICES
Polyethylene November 2017: Price cuts dominate despite stable costs / Stock reductions, imports and problem-free production lines / Ethylene reference higher in December / Rollover nevertheless probable
05.12.2017
POLYMER PRICES
Polypropylene November 2017: Inventory drawdown rebates stimulate demand as intended / Cost pass-through may put upward pressure on December notations
05.12.2017
POLYMER PRICES
Styrenics November 2017: Prices yielding again / PS and ABS follow cost trend / Market tightness allows EPS suppliers to improve margins / Prices trending up in December
05.12.2017
POLYMER PRICES
PET November 2017: Noticeable reductions / Brisk import activity / Demand slumps / Margins shrink / Weakness likely to continue on into December
04.12.2017
POLYMER PRICES
PVC November 2017: Strikingly good demand keeps prices stable / Rollovers predominate / Margin expansions halted / Exceptional purchasing activity in December too / Slight upward movement possible
01.12.2017
POLYMER PRICES
Standard Thermoplastics Trend November 2017: General price reductions as expected / Trend to continue / Demand already beginning to ease / Converters will try to reverse producers' margin increases
13.11.2017
POLYMER PRICES
Polypropylene October 2017: Price rises reflect cost pass-through / Copo increases more modest / Notations will trend sideways in November
