The German commodity plastics market:
Demand from the packaging industry rising

02 Apr 2020 − 

The coronavirus pandemic had a varied impact on the market for standard commodity plastics in March.

Demand from the packaging industry had for instance increased because converters wanted to build up more stock. However the lively demand was also fuelled by lower prices. Furthermore, the market was adversely affected by supply chain uncertainties within Europe. The strong decline in demand across the automotive sector was becoming increasingly apparent.

This is an excerpt from EUWID's monthly report on the German commodity plastics market. The EUWID Price Watch for March together with the complete report are published in EUWID Packaging Markets 7/2020.
