The German PET market:
High temperatures fuel demand amid difficult supply situation

03 Sep 2018 − 

Converters have no grounds to relax just yet regarding the supply situation of PET.

As EUWID discovered, demand significantly exceeded supply in August. Purchasing has been high for months thanks to the warm spring and hot summer.

Prices have stabilised or increased only moderately since July following the massive hikes of May and June. Suppliers of preforms and bottles boasted good deliveries for the past months.


 This is an excerpt from EUWID's bimonthly report on the German PET market. The EUWID Price Watch PET for August together with the complete report is published in EUWID Packaging Markets 18/2018.
