The German polyamide market:
Prices trending upward for PA 6

22 Feb 2021 − 

Availability of PA 6 for packaging applications was considerably limited in January.

The poor supply situation for the upstream products caprolactam and benzene due to maintenance work and unscheduled production stoppages had an impact on granulate production. Nevertheless, delivery times were generally within the customary range. PA 6 demand for food packaging was consistently high at the beginning of the year in the wake of the coronavirus lockdown.
