PIE Price Trend Analysis for plastics procurement
Find the right timing.

Polymer markets are inherently volatile, and prices reflect the everyday changes in economic developments, the arrival of new suppliers, political changes and financial speculations.

The price of polymers like polyethylene, polypropylene and polystyrene is influenced by about 20 different factors.

Feedstock suppliers have very little time to assess the future market development and decide on the best time to buy. But how can you find the right timing?

PIE’s Price Trend Analysis for plastics procurement is based on a unique concept developed by Wolf Polymere Solutions. A one of a kind analysis, it enables an early prediction of price changes and a market turnaround, and points the way to future trends.

In so doing, the Price Trend Analysis provides you with clear recommendations on the best timing to buy and sell polymers.
