Prices of Volume Resins Drop--Except for PE

The downward trajectory appears to be continuing into the first quarter for most resin prices, though PE and possibly PP may remain somewhat stable.

Commodity Resins

Prices Flat for PE; Down for PP, PS, PVC; Up for PET

Prices for both polyolefins and PS seemed to be bottoming out as production rates were lowered.

Commodity Resins

Resin Prices Still Dropping

This downward trajectory is expected to continue, primarily due to slowed demand, lower feedstock costs and adequate-to-ample supplies.  

Engineering Resins

Prices of Volume Resins Drop

Price relief is expected to continue through the fourth quarter for nine major commodity and engineering resins, driven by widespread supply/demand imbalances.  

Commodity Resins

Prices of All Five Commodity Resins Drop

Factors include slowed demand, more than ample supplier inventories, and lower feedstock costs.

Commodity Resins

Still an Up-and-Down Picture for Commodity Resin Prices

Supply/demand imbalances or sharply rising feedstock costs account for the mixed pricing trajectory for the five biggest-volume resins.  

Commodity Resins

Volume Resin Prices Move in Different Directions

PE, PP, PVC, and ABS prices slump, while PS, PET, PC, and nylons 6 and 66 prices rise.

Mixed Pricing Outlook for Commodity Resins for Spring 2022

Prices of PE, PS may have peaked; they were slightly down for PP and PET, up for PVC.  

Commodity Resins

Price Hikes Could Moderate in 2Q

Except for polyolefins, a prices of volume resins could hit a breather in the second quarter.

Engineering Resins

Prices Rising for Most Volume Resins

With the possible exception of PVC, high energy and feedstock costs exacerbated by Russia’s war on Ukraine were leading resin prices higher.    

Commodity Resins

Prices Firm for Polyolefins, PS and PET

PVC prices have the weakest outlook among commodity resins.

Commodity Resins

Prices Drop for Polyolefins and PET

Projected trajectory is downward for polyolefins, flat to upward for PVC, PS, and PET  

Commodity Resins

Mixed Pricing Outlook for Volume Resins

The direction is down for polyolefins and up for nearly all others.

Commodity Resins

Some Price Relief for Commodity Resins

Prices lower for polyolefins and flat to slightly higher for PS, PVC and PET.

Commodity Resins

PE, PP, PS Prices Heading Down

There could be significant price corrections for some resins as supply outpaces demand.

Mixed Pricing Outlook for Commodity Resins for Q4 2021

Up, down or flat--tabs for different resins head in different directions.

Commodity Resins

Prices Up for All Five Commodity Resins

There’s hope for flat or lower prices for each of these resins in the fourth quarter.

Commodity Resins

Polyolefins Prices Still Rising

Upward pricing for polyolefins continues due to supply/demand imbalance but a potential flat-to-downward trajectory is seen for PVC, PET and PS.

Will Prices Stabilize for Commodity Resins?

Demand outpacing supply, and petrochemical price hikes, have supported higher tabs for volume commodity resins. But moderating trends could flatten or even depress the price curve.

Commodity Resins

Commodity Resin Prices Keep on Climbing

Dips in PP and PET tabs proved temporary, as supply/demand imbalances elevate prices and restrict supplies of all five commodity resins. PS hikes are especially brutal.

Commodity Resins

Commodity Resin Prices Rise, But PP Falls

Supply constraints continue to be a key factor in further resin price increases.

Engineering Resins

PP Prices Jump 33¢. Other Volume Resins Up, Too

The extraordinary Gulf Coast winter storm contributed to demand exceeding supply for nearly all resins. PP prices reacted most dramatically.

Commodity Resins

Prices Still Rising for Volume Resins

Global supply constraints on feedstocks and some resins, along with strong demand, are driving continued increases.

Commodity Resins

Volume Resin Prices Keep Rising

Constrained supplies, higher feedstock costs, and continued strong demand fuel ongoing price hikes.
