LLDPE Pricing News

Commodity resin prices were mostly steady to a tad higher; trading activity improved and widespec availability increased. For the most part, Generic Prime railcars remain elusive, although some material began to appear at the end of the week. Polyethylene contracts are mostly flat in September; however, those processors that only went up $.03/lb in Aug will add $.02/lb this month, bringing the market up $.05/lb industry wide for Aug/Sept. Aug Polypropylene contracts followed monomer down $.015/lb, but will reverse in Sept and jump $.025-.04/lb.

Stretch Film Pricing

As a result of rising feedstock costs, increased global demand, and reduced inventories our resin producers have informed us that the previously announced price increase will implement on September 1st. Several grades of polyethylene resin remain under tight supply conditions.

Read Announcements (AEP) (Paragon)
Based on the September 1st PE increase we will implement a 6% increase for standard grade products and a 7% increase on premium products effective with all orders placed on or after October 1. 2012. All orders must call for immediate delivery.

Due to tight resin availability and extended lead times we will strictly limit our customer’s orders in September to a quantity equal to one month of theft average historical six months purchases. Your Sales Representative will inform you of your average purchases over the preceding six months. In addition, we reserve the right to accept or decline orders for any reason.

Polyethylene prices continued higher, amid tight supplies and soaring spot feedstock costs. Supply restrictions will further enhance producers' pricing power as they look to add to the $.03 - .05/lb increase earned for August contracts. Most producers nominated another $.05/lb for September, with one producer again at $.03/lb and another waiting until October to implement their nickel.

Resin and stretch film pricing

The commodity resin markets continued to rise and spot offerings dwindled to very low levels into month-end. Polyethylene and Polypropylene prices both added a penny, driven by already tight supplies along the Petrochemical chain which were further restricted by Hurricane Isaac. Although the storm passed through the Gulf without causing much reported damage to plants, most Crude Oil and Natural Gas platforms were shut in and several Petrochemical complexes also closed or ran at reduced output levels.

The vast majority of these facilities have now resumed or are in the process of returning to normal production. August PE contracts were up $.03 - .05/lb depending on producer, while PP contracts slid $.015/lb. There are price increases nominated for both materials for September.
