Standard Thermoplastics
POLYMER PRICES
Standard Trend April 2018: PE and styrenics under pressure / PP, PVC and EVA producers pass on part of higher costs / Expectations of revival in demand during the month
13.04.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Polyethylene March 2018: Producers pass on most of cost reduction / First LLDPE imports from US put pressure on prices / Slight uptrend likely in April due to rise in ethylene reference
05.04.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Polypropylene March 2018: Cost relief broadly passed on / Sufficient supply / Converters' buying tactics shred producers' margins / Firm rollover likely in April
05.04.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Styrenics March 2018: Increased SM costs further drive up prices / New all-time high for EPS / Price expectations limit demand / Significant reductions expected for April
05.04.2018
POLYMER PRICES
PET March 2018: Moderate improvements possible in producer margins / Asian exports heading more towards North America / Few offers in Europe / First season peak now over / Balanced momentum in April
04.04.2018
POLYMER PRICES
PVC March 2018: Marginal declines in base grades and rigid compounds / High price of plasticiser pushes up plasticised compounds / Pastes stay at same level / Slight upward trend in April
04.04.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Standard Thermoplastics Trend March 2018: LDPE under price pressure / Maintenance turnarounds and scarce imports support other polyolefins / Higher styrene reference drives up PS and EPS / Buyers hold back in hope for price cuts in Q2
13.03.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Polyethylene February 2018: Producers mostly succeed in passing on cost increases / High stock levels reduce customers' need to buy / Falling costs create space for price cuts in March
05.03.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Polypropylene February 2018: Price hikes exceed producer cost rise / Outages narrow supply / Impetus for upswing weakens / Sideways movement likely
05.03.2018
POLYMER PRICES
Styrenics February 2018: Three-digit premiums on PS and EPS / Significant SM cost increase fuels notations / High price level dampens demand / Continued upward momentum in March
05.03.2018
POLYMER PRICES
PET February 2018: Slight increases in Europe / Clear upswing in the US / Prices picking up in Asia too / Rising seasonal demand could push up notations more clearly in March
02.03.2018
POLYMER PRICES
PVC February 2018: Producers win only small margin improvements with base grades / Rigid compounds again move up at above-average rate / Upward pressure likely to continue in March
02.03.2018
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
