The German commodity plastics market:
Stable prices for polyolefins and PVC

06 Sep 2018 − 

Supply and demand for standard commodity plastics were on the whole balanced in August.

Deliveries of polyolefins and PVC were seasonally moderate.

As EUWID discovered, the prices of polyethylene, polypropylene and PVC largely remained at July levels, effectively emulating upstream product movements.

PS also followed the lead of the monomer fetching an additional €20/t. Anticipated hikes have to a certain degree boosted order levels for this plastic.
