The German used disposable PET bottles market:
Prices for clear flakes increase in February

05 Mar 2021 − 

German PET recyclers reported an increase in demand for clear flakes in February.

Demand from nearly all sectors increased because the primary resin has become more expensive again and supply has tightened. As expected, prices for clear flakes increased over the course of the month, while only minimal hikes could be made for coloured flakes where it was possible at all. Recyclers told EUWID that they expected the upward trend for clear flakes to continue through March.

While business on the sales side was generally very satisfactory for recyclers at the moment, securing an adequate supply of used bottles had become problematic.

This is an excerpt from EUWID's monthly report on the German market for used disposable PET bottles. The EUWID Price Watch for February together with the complete report will be published in EUWID Packaging Markets 5/2021.
