Standard Thermoplastics
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
PET January 2019: Further reductions on the European market / Cost side still weak / Sufficient availability of imports / No trend reversal expected in February
01.02.2019
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
04.01.2019
POLYMER PRICES
PET December 2018: Price reductions predominate again / Smaller transactions increasingly stable / January could see further reductions
03.01.2019
POLYMER PRICES
PVC December 2018: Ethylene price reduction not passed on in full / Production restrictions shore up prices / Robust demand for the season / Further price falls expected in the new year
03.01.2019
POLYMER PRICES
Standard Thermoplastics Trend December 2018: Hefty price cuts with all polymers after triple-digit fall in olefin and SM reference prices / Producers nevertheless improve margins
14.12.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Polyethylene November 2018: Falling ethylene reference sets trend / Most notations show moderate decline / Following ethylene crash, December should see substantial price cuts
05.12.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Polypropylene November 2018: Production outages trigger rollover / C3 fall factored in for homo injection moulding / Prices will sink noticeably in December
05.12.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Styrenics November 2018: Large discounts after SM reference nosedives / Cost reduction only partly transferred for PS and EPS / Occasional bottlenecks / Slump will continue in December
05.12.2018
POLYMER PRICES
PET November 2018: Downward thrust in notations gaining pace / Asian imports flowing back onto the market / Further corrections of the exceptional highs expected in December
04.12.2018
POLYMER PRICES
PVC November 2018: Prices roll over or slightly fall / C2 reduction cannot be factored in across the market / Availability still limited / Large cut in the ethylene reference for December leads to expectations of price cuts
04.12.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Standard Thermoplastics Trend November 2018: Minor reductions with polyolefins / Styrenics take triple-digit plunge / Occasional supply restrictions with PVC and PP
14.11.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Polypropylene October 2018: Sluggish demand curbs cost pass-through / Minor upturn for standard grades / Flat curve for compounds / Automotive weakness likely to persist
