Price Reporting – Overview of Polymers, Feedstocks and Indices

PIE offers 100 different polymers, feedstocks and indices for your individual price analyses. Unless otherwise stated, the data refer to the average price based on western European contracts. The prices are based on information obtained from processors, distributors, traders and producers.

There are a number of comparative and analytical tools with which price analyses can be made:

  • MyPrices: Create your own personal website with individualized reports and e-mail alerts
  • Price Details: Detailed overview of a specific type (price, change, range, market situation, etc.), including outlook and reference prices
  • Chart Generator: Create charts and comparative illustrations using up to five different feedstocks

Plastixx Price Indices
PIE’s offer also includes the “Plastixx” polymer price index, illustrating the price development of plastics in western Europe. While the Plastixx index contains the most important thermoplastics, “Plastixx ST” represents the price development of standard thermoplastics, while “Plastixx TT” focuses on engineering thermoplastics.

In addition, six “A-Plastixx” indices show the price development of a specific group of plastics predominantly used in a particular market segment, including packaging, construction, automotive and E&E.
Methodology for pricing and data evaluation
How are PIE’s polymer prices generated?

Prices are based on information obtained by PIE from plastics converters, distributors, traders and producers. They are the outcome of an online survey (panel) and complemented and weighted by detailed telephone interviews.

PIE boasts the plastics industry’s largest network of contacts. More than 600 regular panel participants in Europe ensure that our coverage is close to the market beat.
