The German PET market:
Converters boast full raw material inventories at the start of the season

09 May 2019 − 

The peak season for suppliers of bottles and preforms started at the end of April and is expected to last until the end of June if the weather patterns are normal.

The inventories are brimming during this peak period. While converters told EUWID that they had been able to meet their PET demand since January via European suppliers and that Asian imports were negligible, PET suppliers said that the market had relied on Asian volumes to avoid shortfalls these past months. 

PET had been readily available in April, according to respondents.

 This is an excerpt from EUWID's report on the German PET market. The EUWID Price Watch PET for April together with the complete report will be published in EUWID Packaging Markets 19/2019.
