January CDI report estimates flat for LLDPE, LDPE, and HDPE. PVC up $.03 and PP up $.05.

A couple of interesting points:

• CDI is now forecasting a $.06 “annual average increase in PE contract prices for 2014”.

• Export opportunities are keeping domestic supply tight.

The February 1st resin increase is looking all the more likely to go thru.

Resin Price Increase for Feb 2014!

Market Update & Summary Jan 10th, 2014


Happy New Year. I would like to thank each of you for a successful 2013 and I look forward to continuing our success and growth in 2014.

Attached are 4 resin letters from our suppliers announcing a resin price increase for February 1st. The likelihood of this increase going through is anybody's guess, but I don't believe resin prices will be dropping and we are preparing for a possible February / March price increase. I will keep you posted on further increase updates.

Many customers have depleted inventory to bare-bone levels in preparation for year end as well as possible lower prices. I recommend building your inventory levels back up while lead times are manageable.

Thank you for your continued support and business.

Polyethylene business better

LLDPE talk of a fresh increase is just that "PE flat again in December; there is not a conforming industry wide price increase for January, but a number of producers nominated a fresh $.04/lb for February."
