The German PET market:
Demand softens, contract prices continue to yield

11 Nov 2019 − 

After the months of August and September enjoyed positive weather which boosted business in the beverage industry, demand for virgin PET grades softened at the beginning of the fourth quarter.

The yielding demand was customary and owed to the season. The companies were not registering any volume losses over economic developments.

In August and September the prices of some upstream materials yielded further, which was reflected in the contract prices for virgin PET.
