There is still some length in the market.
Polycarbonate (PC) prices rolled over in September in Europe, according to GC Intelligence market analysis.
Sellers were aiming to achieve increases on the back of better demand and tighter supply.
Demand is increasing as most market segments are recovering.
At the same time, current and planned turnarounds are tightening supply.
However, there was still enough length in the market in September to ensure another price rollover.
Some upside pressure is building and it is possible that some buyers will have to accept higher prices in the next few weeks.
But the current increase in coronavirus infections across Europe have certainly increased downside risks for the rest of 2020.
