Notes on these reports
Contrary to Europe and North America, polymer is traded on a daily basis in China. PIE works together with a seasoned Chinese expert, who observes the ongoing price developments in the country’s leading polymer trading centres. Since plastic is traded daily, the prices are a reliable reflection of the actual market trends.

Taking currency fluctuations into account, PIE then translates and aggregates this data, and enriches it with qualitative reports from our expert about current market developments in China.
