The German commodity plastics market:
Demand still a little reticent in May

06 Jun 2019 − 

Demand for standard commodity plastics eased further in mid-May compared to April.

PVC seems to be the exception because demand here is being supported significantly by the robust construction industry.

On the whole the mood among suppliers remains positive for the second quarter, even if some, for instance compounders, are dissatisfied with demand. The slowing economy, Brexit and the trade conflict with the US are having a negative impact on business.

This is an excerpt from EUWID's monthly report on the German commodity plastics market. The EUWID Price Watch for May together with the complete report will be published in EUWID Packaging Markets 12/2019.
