Only the contract prices of pure rLDPE grades were still under pressure in June. rHDPE injection moulding grades were also declining slightly, while rPE tube prices could gain marginally thanks to the ongoing construction season. As for rPP, homo materials trended a bit stronger than their copo counterparts did, while rPET prices could benefit enough from the beverage season to see some moderate premiums.
Market players are not expecting any significant price changes in the weeks to come. Pure rLDPE grades are likely to experience further pressure from the primary market, especially as the upcoming holiday season dampens demand. By contrast, seasonal effects are still supporting rPE tube and rRET prices.
