Like the Plastixx indices, the A- Plastixx indices are generated according to the principle of the "Paasche index". Each of the six indices mirrors the price movement of a group of plastics that are of key relevance for the particular market segment. The monthly index calculation is based on the average market prices of the materials in western Europe, weighted according to western European consumption volumes. This weighting is updated annually.
