The German commodity plastics market:
Demand below expectations in September

04 Oct 2021 − 

Contrary to expectations, demand for standard commodity plastics did not go through the roof in September, which is traditionally a strong month for sales.

Compared to August, a noticeable upturn could be observed, but converters mostly bought "as required" and did not order more than the necessary quantities. The supply had improved noticeably for almost all standard thermoplastics in recent months. The only exception was the primary PVC market.

All companies surveyed by EUWID were equally affected by the logistics difficulties within Europe.

⇒ This is an excerpt from EUWID's monthly report on the German commodity plastics market. The EUWID Price Watch for September together with the complete report will be published in EUWID Packaging Markets 20/2021.
