The German commodity plastics market:
Prices fall amid rising supply in June

28 Jun 2021 − 

The market for standard thermoplastics experienced a gradual trend reversal in June.

The poor supply situation of the past months across all types of plastic was described as less critical by the majority of the EUWID respondents. Supply had improved markedly for polyethylene as well as styrene plastics. "Prices are under pressure and softening," said one market expert, referring to markedly rising import volumes.

Despite the improved supply of plastics, however, not all converters were able to relax just yet.
