Standard Thermoplastics
POLYMER PRICES
Standard Thermoplastics Trend October 2017: Polyolefins producers find it difficult to improve margins / Costs are factored in for the most part / Demand subdued / Little fresh impetus on horizon
13.10.2017
POLYMER PRICES
Polyethylene September 2017: Many producers push through margin increases / US hurricane and transport problems in Germany's Rhine Valley result in supply restrictions / Trends expected to weaken slightly in October
05.10.2017
POLYMER PRICES

05.10.2017
POLYMER PRICES
Styrenics September 2017: Skyrocketing styrene costs trigger three-digit premiums / Still largely strong demand / EPS supply running short / Price correction expected in October
05.10.2017
POLYMER PRICES
PET September 2017: Price rises exceed cost increases again / Confused market fuels nervousness / Producers in financial difficulties / Spot business drives notations / Demand slows
02.10.2017
POLYMER PRICES
PVC September 2017: Passing on costs is the norm / Disproportionate rise in rigid blends due to additives / Flexible compounds benefit from easing of short plasticiser supply / Trends continuing
02.10.2017
POLYMER PRICES
Standard Thermoplastics Trend September 2017: Prices rise on a broad front / Producers pass on their increased costs / Biggest rises with PS and EPS / Demand picks up significantly after holiday season
14.09.2017
POLYMER PRICES
Polypropylene August 2017: Rollover dominates / Some very low prices pulled upward / Palpable price hikes likely in September / Rising costs and extreme tightness in North America
05.09.2017
POLYMER PRICES
Styrenics August 2017: Only minor price changes / Slight reductions on PS and ABS and slight premiums on EPS due to supply tightness / Sharp price increase on all materials in September
05.09.2017
POLYMER PRICES
Polyethylene August 2017: Notations oscillate around a rollover / Pipe grades fall slightly / Considerable turbulence probable in September / Increase in reference price rendered insignificant by catastrophic storm in US
04.09.2017
POLYMER PRICES
PVC August 2017: Stability predominated during this quiet holiday month / September could prove to be turbulent / Impact of catastrophe in Houston should provide a boost
04.09.2017
POLYMER PRICES
PET August 2017: Prices still rising / Wider spread in evidence / Tight market situation allowing margin increases for producers / September still on upward trend / Impact of US hurricane unpredictable
04.09.2017

PVC July 2017: Cost reductions generally passed on / Titanium dioxide appears over the worst / Ongoing scarcity of plasticisers / PVC pastes still faring well / August notations tending sideways
03.08.2017
POLYMER PRICES
Styrenics July 2017: Further premiums on PS and EPS / Butadiene's sharp drop puts pressure on ABS notations / Availability often limited despite holiday season / Slight reductions foreseeable in August
03.08.2017
POLYMER PRICES
PET July 2017: Producers up their margins through price hikes despite falling costs / Imports thin on the ground / Demand driven by hot weather / August calmer but still under pressure
02.08.2017
POLYMER PRICES
Standard Thermoplastics Trend July 2017: Situation dictated by feedstock costs / Polyolefins price cuts / Order stops aim to put the brakes on / Styrenics rise / Building materials boosted by strong demand
14.07.2017
POLYMER PRICES
Polyethylene June 2017: Price cuts mostly much bigger than the fall in costs / Film grades under particularly acute pressure because of oversupply / More reductions in July / Will there be a trend turnaround before the end of the month?
