Stretch Film Prices Falling in December 2015

Image
LLDPE - CATCH A FALLING KNIFE ‘’Although prices are falling, cheaper resin will be offered, processors still need material to run and the lead time for delivery requires ongoing purchases.’’



HYPERACTIVE LLDPE "resin markets continued their streak of hyperactivity; the flow of fresh railcars has been rapid and falling prices are encouraging processors to procure material.

RESIN DECLINES ‘’PE contracts decreased $.03/lb in Nov and should see a decline of $.04-.05/lb this month; barring an unforeseen event, they will likely find further pressure in the first quarter."

BUY WISELY "While processors are clearly enjoying the cheaper resin prices, they are still wisely buying material as needed and to assure the continuity of supply during the sometimes challenging last week of Dec and first couple weeks of the New Year."

COSTS FALLING "The major energy markets continued to collapse in historic fashion." "Ethylene prices continued to unravel;"

Sigma Plastics General Price Increase (Read letter)

AEP General Price Increase (Read letter)

IPG Intertape General Price Increase (Read letter)

"With spot Ethylene dropping in relative freefall, domestic processors are looking for a share of the savings; perhaps that ever elusive price decrease might finally come through in November. The last decrease was $.02/lb back in November 2012, there has since been $.21/lb of increases, the most recent was $.03/lb this September."

"US resin producers have maintained their pricing power and domestic resin selling prices have only been descending slowly."

EXPECT LLDPE TO FALL SOON "It is likely that the Polyethylene market will recoil a little in the coming week as sales pressure is relieved at the beginning of the month."

Printwiz - New from Quick Pak Inc

What is Printwiz: Printwiz is a hand-held print on demand tape gun that allows plain tape to become printed tape. 

The unique and patented printing mechanism in the Printwiz dispenser places the image to be printed onto the adhesive side of the tape. 

This avoids smearing as well as the normally
necessary drying time of the ink for the imprint and as the imprint is captured between the film of the tape and the corrugated carton, the image is absorbed and transferred into the corrugated creating
security tape.

The Printwiz dispenser also helps create brand recognition for the product, can be used for coding or dating, storage instructions, locations and identification, and is lightweight, easy to
use, and economical and needs no operator training.

Hasn't this been tried before: Yes, but what makes the Printwiz system different is that we are transferring the print onto the adhesive side of the tape. This exclusive and protected method avoids all the proble…

E ACTIVE "Ethylene trading was extremely active"

PE SLIDES "The spot Polyethylene market came under pressure as sellers with groups of railcars hit the market searching for buyers ahead of month-end. Average Polyethylene prices slid $.01/lb"

EXPECT PE TO FALL SOON "It is likely that the Polyethylene market will recoil a little in the coming week as sales pressure is relieved at the beginning of the month."

MARKET NEWS October.
LLDPE Resin – Plastic industry analysts are reporting PE resin pricing flat for October (no change). 
Trade Reporter October 2014 Dow Chemical earned 72 cents per share for the third quarter, 4 cents above estimates, with revenue above consensus as well. Dow was helped by higher sales in plastics and performance materials. Business News October 2014
"Polyethylene shed $.01/lb in slow and nervous trading. PE demand fell silent as sharply lower energy and feedstock prices had buyers sensing lower resin prices ahead. There was a modest increase in resin availability this past week; LDPE and LLDPE film grades have become easier to source. However, Polyethylene reactor issues have kept overall resin supplies fairly tight"

"resin trading practically screeched to a halt; massive volatility in world equity and energy prices created uncertainty in the resin markets and sent buyers to the sidelines."
