Polyethylene
Polyethylene trading was notably lighter than it was during the past several weeks. There was a little lull in producer offerings this week, but not enough to alter market sentiment, which remains slightly negative from this price point. There was previously a good flurry of activity as some processors had run their inventories down and had to restock.

Polypropylene

The Polypropylene market slowed from its active pace and trading volume was only considered about average. PP production was finally reduced in September, largely due to planned and unplanned reactor maintenance; we are just now starting to see a lighter flow of railcar material. While overall resin availability remains ample, processors continue to pick away at resellers’ aged inventories, which have been the lowest priced material in the market
