resin pricing from quick pak inc

Resin processors (film producers) , well-stocked with inventory, are resisting efforts to secure the $.03/lb balance of the $.06/lb price increase partially implemented in February. Demand, both domestic and export, was slower in Feb than some had anticipated contributing to the swell in inventories. Ample resin availability at reasonable market prices is easing buyers’ concerns about prices rising further,for now.

Resin prices today from quick pak inc

Polyethylene prices pushed a penny higher, but it was not a very impressive showing considering that $.03 -.10/lb of price increases are on the table. Although it is still early in the month, market conditions might challenge the current price increases initiative, especially beyond the $.03/lb balance remaining from February.
Trade Analyst March 2012

At the moment it seems that Polyethylene resin producers will be hard-pressed to increase contracts beyond the $.03/lb remaining on the Feb increase, which is also not a slam dunk. Film processors are working down hefty inventories accumulated from aggressive purchases before the increases.

Resin pricing from quick pak inc

Polyethylene prices pushed higher, but it was not a very impressive showing considering that $.03 -.10/lb of price increases are on the table. After three months of strong buying, which added to film producer resin inventories ahead of first quarter price increases, domestic demand pulled back sharply in February -

Rresin Pricing by Quick Pak Inc

Market Update & Summary March 9th 2012:


LLDPE: Resin producers announce 'split' price increase half now half later, film converters follow suit. April 1 increase also on the table in unprecedented spate of resin price hikes (AEP) (Sigma) (Paragon) (Amtopp) (Berry) (Intertape) (Western Plastics)

The Dow Chemical Company - Polyethylene Price Notification Effective April 1, 2012 US
February Petrochemical Prices Surge 10% on High Oil Prices, Tight Supply Prices in the $3-trillion-plus global petrochemicals marketplace climbed 10% in February.

Trade News March 2012


In a letter dated February 2nd, we had announced our intentions to implement a film increase of 7% on February 27th to cover the February $.06 resin increase. The market has since adjusted to a “split implementation” of $.03 effective February 1st, with the other $.03 to be implemented on March 1st. Please keep in mind that there is also a $.07 resin increase on the table for April 1st and this increase will be addressed at a later time...
US Stretch Film Producer March 2012




In response to the “split implementation”. Sigma Plastics announces the following: Sigma’s previously announced 7% film increase will be amended to 4% effective with orders placed February. 27th. In response to the pending March 1st resin increase, all new orders received on or after March 26th will be priced at a 4% increase...
US Stretch Film Producer March 2012



We understand the stress and difficulty associated with these increases. However, the resin suppliers seem to have multiple increase attempts pending, regardless of market place dynamics. We cannot speculate on the strength or weakness of these announcements. That leaves us with no choice but to announce a corresponding film increase. To not announce now will only cause rushed implementation later with foreshortened lead times and limited availability of some items ...
US Stretch Film Producer March 2012


Natural-gas drillers have been using hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” and other technology to develop gas in shale fields from Texas to Pennsylvania. The new sources have driven the price from a high of more than $13 per million British thermal units in 2008 to as low as $2.23 on Jan. 23. Gas futures closed at $2.55 on the New York Mercantile Exchange last week. Natural gas is used to produce LLDPE resin in the U.S.
