11.01.2023
POLYMER PRICES
North America November 2022: General market weakness pushes most prices down / Only PE, PS, engineering thermoplastics see occasional rollover / Downward pressure to remain until end of year
07.12.2022
UPDATE - POLYMER PRICES
North America October 2022: Weak demand, high stock levels put prices under pressure / Only PE moves sideways / Rising interest rates depress consumer behaviour / Further price reductions expected in November
09.11.2022
POLYMER PRICES
North America September 2022: Price declines for feedstocks, base polymers, compounds / Cooler economy, rising interest rates slow purchasing / More reductions in October
12.10.2022
POLYMER PRICES
North America August 2022: Polymer prices plummet / Trend turnaround for PS, PA 6 / Falling feedstock costs, weak market base to push prices lower
14.09.2022
POLYMER PRICES
North America July 2022: Most prices decline, but styrene-based thermoplastics see major hikes / Weak demand, full inventories / Benzene market calmer / Price reductions on the cards for August
17.08.2022
POLYMER PRICES
North America June 2022: Many large price reductions, except for styrene-based plastics / Demand slows in view of rising prices and interest rates / Poor prospects for upcoming months
13.07.2022
POLYMER PRICES
North America May 2022: PE, PVC move sideways as PP nosedives / Precarious time for styrene drives up PS, PA 6 / Consumer demand slumps on high inflation / June expected mostly weaker
09.06.2022
POLYMER PRICES
North America April 2022: Reports of significant increases except for polyolefins / Polyamides in particular are picking up / Inflation and rising interest rates are likely to put pressure on demand / Further inflation in May
11.05.2022
POLYMER PRICES
North America March 2022: Growing production costs raise prices / Tensions high / War, logistics and manufacturing issues set to fuel April hikes
08.04.2022
POLYMER PRICES
North America February 2022: Prices in all segments roll over or rise / Situation dominated by logistical problems, shortages of additives and the war / Wide-ranging hikes expected in March
