LLDPE: Stretch Wrap Demand Up On Improving Business Outlook

Resin producers issue new 5 cpp price increase for October with no agreement on implementation. Order books look better on reports of depleted Distributor inventories.

Due to continuing rising feedstock costs, all polyethylene resin suppliers have successfully implemented a $.04/lb increase effective September 1, 2009. As a result of these raw material increases, we will implement a 6% price increase on all orders received on or after October 1, 2009 and on shipments effective October 15, 2009. All orders received prior to October 1, 2009 must call for immediate shipment. We reserve the right to accept or deny orders and will limit acceptance to normal order levels based on historical sales. In addition to the September 1 price increase, all resin suppliers have announced a $.04/lb increase effective October 1, 2009. We will keep you posted on this and be sure to communicate any developments.

LLDPE Pricing

PE prices were steady this week but trading was relatively quiet. Several participants said that a 4 cpp contract price increase proposed in September was largely implemented. Producers have issued a 5 cpp contract price increase for October, but no agreement on implementation has been reached yet.

LLDPE: Stretch Wrap Demand Improves On Industrial Production Jump
C.D.I. September resin up 4 cents/lb. Film price increases loom.Distributor restocking 'takes off' on swelling order books and depleted inventories.

A PE market analyst commented that the September PE price hike seemed to come out of nowhere. "The drivers that would have helped it get through are already gone,". "There's little domestic demand and almost no buying in Asia. But [PE makers] stuck to their guns and said "Go buy from someone else, then." North American PE prices now have climbed an average of 17 cents per pound in 2009. That works out to an increase of almost 30 percent, based on average selling prices for dairy blow molding grades of high density PE. The increases came after prices plummeted in the fourth quarter of 2008, as prices for oil and natural gas tanked and demand evaporated as the impact of global recession kicked in.
