The German commodity plastics market:
Supply shortage again determines prices

31 May 2021 − 

In view of the shortage of raw materials and the high demand from the packaging industry, as well as from almost all other sectors, prices on the market for standard commodity plastics were once again trending upwards.

Numerous cases of force majeure persisted in May, and there were also new reports of production disruptions for polyolefins and PVC. Manufacturers raised plastic prices in line with those of the upstream products, albeit to a smaller degree than in previ-ous months.

⇒ 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 11/2021.
