Stretch film pricing

Prices for polyethylene move higher. Rising costs earlier in the year for ethylene, the key chemical use to make polyethylene, are behind the firmer price for the plastic. U.S. polyethylene prices rose 5.7% during the first quarter of 2013. Ethylene itself saw its prices jump by nearly 30% between early December and late January, threatening the profitability of certain plastics' manufacture. Polyethylene is so widely used in the manufacture of packaging, consumer goods and industrial stretchfilm that it is considered by many to be as ubiquitous as fuel.

Polyethylene


Spot Polyethylene prices started the week firmer, but ended steady and with a negative bias. Sentiment weakened as monomer markets fell and one PE producer postponed their $.04/lb price increase until March; others have yet to follow, but some competitive offers are reportedly being met. Generic Prime railcars have been slow to show, but we anticipate better spot availability ahead.

The Industrial Packaging segment designs and manufactures steel, plastic, and paper products used for bundling, shipping, and protecting transported goods.

Market Update & Summary February 12th, 2013:


Polyethylene asking prices moved higher this past week, but when material actually changed hands,

prices were mostly steady to just a tad higher. Producers are looking to add to their $.05/lb January

gains through the implementation of another $.04/lb increase in Feb, although they are meeting steep

resistance from processors. While Generic Prime railcars are available, we have not yet experienced a

flat out spot purchase reflecting the full Feb increase. Orders are more often being placed at the up 4

price, with the caveat that the increase will be rebated if it doesn't hold industry-wide. South American

and European Polyethylene interest waned as US prices increased; however, International traders are

anticipating resurgence in activity after the Chinese New Year.



February ushered in a new round of price increases, buyers have heard this tune before, but at this point

there is just not a whole lot they can do about it. The writin…
