09.11.2021
POLYMER PRICES
North America September 2021: Tension eases with polyolefins and PS / PVC firmer again / C2 production cut after explosion / Shortage of compounds props up engineering thermoplastic prices
07.10.2021
POLYMER PRICES
North America August 2021: Prices mixed despite Hurricane Ida / Production downtimes drive up standard thermoplastics in particular / ABS, PC and polyamides move sideways / Market hopes for a breath of fresh air in September
09.09.2021
POLYMER PRICES
North America July 2021: Prices largely firmer / Exceptions are PVC, PS / Allocations and FMs still common / Price increases more or less set for August
06.08.2021
POLYMER PRICES
North America June 2021: Polyolefin and PVC prices rise again / Pressure eases for styrenics / Most engineering thermoplastics largely firmer / Tight supply situation expected to bring further increases in July
12.07.2021
POLYMER PRICES
North America May 2021: Notations race from one high to the next / Product shortages everywhere / Numerous forces majeures still in place / Benzene price gives reason for hope / Only PS situation likely to improve in June
09.06.2021
POLYMER PRICES
North America April 2021: Mammoth price increases dominate the picture / Converters despair over record costs / Benzene price explodes / High costs and low inventories point to new record demands for May
07.05.2021
POLYMER PRICES
North America March 2021: Prices race from one high to the next / Shortage of material leads to stoppages in processing / Slight easing of the situation with PP / Further increases on the cards for April
09.04.2021
POLYMER PRICES
North America February 2021: Dramatic shortages spark price explosion / Winter storms on Gulf of Mexico bring production to standstill / Producers often unable to meet demand / Relief unlikely
10.03.2021
POLYMER PRICES
North America January 2021: Unceasing upward movement in all segments / Rising feedstock prices and supply bottlenecks reinforce the trend / Slight easing of the situation expected in February
10.02.2021
POLYMER PRICES
North America December 2020: High feedstock prices, tight supply situation and recovery tendency in plastics processing combine to drive up prices / Significant increases with few exceptions / Tension unlikely to ease
