Stretch film pricing today 8.28.2012

The order rate in advance of this (August) price increase is extremely heavy and further increases could be coming. Lead times have extended out on most items and are now as follows: Please plan accordingly, especially with pre-stretched hand film. Thanks for your continued business and support. Blown hand/machine film: 2 weeks Cast hand/machine film: 6 weeks Pre-stretched hand film: 6 weeks


U.S. Stretch Film Producer August 2012



We are going up $.05 on all products, except prestretched where we are going up $.06. This matches what others are doing. Expect further increases as likely and the resulting impact on lead times. Stay tuned.

Polyethylene prices are packing on pennies, 1-2 more of them this past week. All grades are considered tight. With Ethylene prices sprinting higher and Tropical Storm Isaac impacting the Gulf, there is no surprise that producers are standing firm on the 5c/lb August increase.

Polyethylene


Spot Polyethylene prices pressed higher, with gains up to $.01/lb seen – HDPE was the strongest segment of the market. Polyethylene producers have a $.05/lb increase on the table for August, and while one producer relaxed their stance to just $.03/lb, no one else seems to be following suit. PE producers as a group are sitting on their lightest resin inventories of the year, this coupled with good exports and rapidly rising spot Ethylene costs.   More info on this is available from:

LLDPE Stretch Film Pricing

Polyethylene prices moving higher. Overall material availability remains constrained; producer's inventories are down, limiting supplies. The low flow of offerings witnessed the past couple of weeks is typical considering the first of two $.05/lb price increases on the table.

Trade Reports August 2012



Due to rising feedstock costs, low inventories, and improving global and domestic market demand, our resin suppliers have informed us of their intentions to implement a previously announced resin increase effective August 1st. In addition to this August increase, our suppliers have also announced another increase of $.03 to $.05 for September 1st, which we will monitor and address at a later date. In addition to this latest resin increase we have absorbed rising costs in freight, additives, packaging, labor, utilities, insurance, etc. that now we must pass on.
