The German polyamide market:
Price hikes in November for PA 6 for packaging applications

07 Dec 2020 − 

The market for PA 6 for packaging applications was once again characterised by a lot of movement towards the end of the year.

The force majeure declaration by a major European raw material supplier, who had had difficulties in restarting the production of caprolactam after maintenance work, severely limited the supply of PA 6 in Europe in November. "We are completely sold out and can't meet the current order backlog," said an EUWID respondent. Hardly any additional volumes were sold aside from the agreed allocations. It had also become more difficult to meet delivery times, as containers and trucks were reportedly in short supply.
