Our methodology and your advantages as a price reporter
Martin Bäcker
Head of Polymer Prices

Dear reader,

Plastics Information Europe (PIE) is a neutral information medium, with price indices that are used in contract negotiations. To be a reliable source of price information, PIE uses a two-pillar methodology that allows PIE to map prices and developments in line with the market. 

What is our two-pillar methodology?

For more than two decades, the first pillar has been a dedicated electronic reporting system that key market players participate in by entering their actual market prices. This information is then analysed using statistical methods. The second pillar consists of regular telephone interviews with industry contacts, in order to stay informed about both the current market situation and future developments. To ensure neutrality, we speak with suppliers and customers alike: processors, producers, compounders, recyclers, distributors, systems producers and retailers. 

3 advantages as a price reporter:

  • Weekly updates on Feedstocks / Aromatics spot prices
  • Exclusive access to market details before publication through direct contact with our experts
  • 30% discount on a KI Group product* of your choice

The identity and entries of a participant are not visible to others. We vouch for the security of your data!

Make the most of your opportunity in the next survey and contribute your views on market developments.

Yours sincerely

Martin Bäcker
Head of Polymer Prices
