Styrenics July 2020: Hikes mostly remain below the cost transfer / Demand is much reduced / Maintenance plans could lead to allocations / Slight price increases in August
05.08.2020
POLYMER PRICES
PVC July 2020: Ethylene hike provides a lift / Strong demand for profiles plus production cutbacks triggers small supply shortages / Additional volumes not generally available
04.08.2020
POLYMER PRICES
Standard thermoplastics trend July 2020: Notations rising / Price hikes often exceed feedstock cost increases / Demand restrained as a result / Imports boost supply
13.07.2020
POLYMER PRICES
Polyethylene June 2020: Ethylene increase rarely factored in full into polymers / Demand below expectations / Production cutbacks still the norm / Upward trend in July
03.07.2020
POLYMER PRICES
Polypropylene June 2020: Prices curve upwards again / Propylene rise not all passed on to copo and compounds buyers / Soft automotive demand / More hikes in July

POLYMER PRICES
Styrenics June 2020: Prices pick up again / Often no full cost transfer / Further hikes expected in July
03.07.2020
POLYMER PRICES
PVC June 2020: Notations moving upward again / End of the price decline to date / All costs generally passed on / Demand picking up / Further increases foreseeable for July
02.07.2020
POLYMER PRICES
Standard thermoplastics trend June 2020: Prices climbing up on a broad front / Increases mostly smaller than the monomer rise / Converters quiet after pre-buying in May / Demand is subdued
12.06.2020
POLYMER PRICES
Polyethylene May 2020: Situation gradually returning to normal / Unscheduled outages impact supply / Demand presents a mixed picture / Price rises expected in June after ethylene increase
04.06.2020
POLYMER PRICES
Polypropylene May 2020: Notations continue downward / Automotive demand still weak / Change of direction in June
04.06.2020
POLYMER PRICES
Styrenics May 2020: Prices bottoming out / Speculation on a trend reversal stimulates demand / Demand remains marked by Covid-19 crisis / Higher notations in June
04.06.2020
POLYMER PRICES
PVC May 2020: Notations still under pressure / Cost reductions mostly passed on in full / Prices likely to turn upwards again in June
03.06.2020
POLYMER PRICES
Standard thermoplastics trend May 2020: With PE, most producers factor in half the C2 reduction / Battle for price cuts heats up / Industrial packaging on tough road back to normality
14.05.2020
POLYMER PRICES
Polyethylene April 2020: Order activity varies / Producers consider controlling supply / More price cuts expected in May after cost of ethylene drops again
06.05.2020
POLYMER PRICES
Polypropylene April 2020: Triple-digit rebates across the board / Coronavirus hits automotive demand / Compounding lines shut / More rebates likely in May
06.05.2020
POLYMER PRICES
Styrenics April 2020: Prices continue to plummet / Partial transfer of cost reductions / Softening in the course of the month / Coronavirus crisis shapes demand / Smaller discounts expected in May
06.05.2020
POLYMER PRICES
PVC April 2020: Notations fall after cost of ethylene plunges / Producers hang on to margin component / Further price reductions expected in May
