Polyethylene

For the third week in a row spot Polyethylene prices eased slightly. Film processors have backed away from buying, reporting healthy inventory already on hand and citing only moderate demand for their finished goods. Although upstream resin inventories grew in September, they are still relatively light, but balanced off by unenthusiastic buying activity, both domestic and export. Resin producers have not overtly diminished their intent to increase October resin prices by 5c/lb

Market Update & Summary Oct 1th 2012:




Spot resin markets were mostly steady to a half-cent higher in moderate trading. Railcar offerings continue to run at a below average pace and resellers’ inventories are also on the light-side, those processors in need of spot material are reluctantly bidding up the market to get material. September resin contracts are seeing very little movement. Polyethylene contracts are mostly steady, although those buyers that only went up $.03/lb in August are paying $.02/lb more this month; industry-wide contracts are now up $.05/lb for Aug/Sept. It looks like PP contracts are increasing just $.01/lb in Sept, on the low side of expectations; PGP was initially nominated to increase $.025-.04/lb.
