The German commodity plastics market:
Pressure on prices persists during July

11 Aug 2017 − 

As they had in June, the prices of all standard commodity plastics - except PS – dropped in July.

The quotes are following the lead of the upstream product contract prices.

The mark-downs were often more pronounced for LDPE and HDPE than for LLDPE. PP followed the course of propylene.

The PS hikes range below the mark-ups of the monomer. PVC suppliers passed on about half the ethylene adjustment.
