Trinseo announces price increases in October on ABS, SAN and PS, according to a note on the company’s website.
The increases on spot and contracts will be effective from 1 October, 2021.
General purpose polystyrene (PS) and high impact polystyrene (HIPS) will increase €55/mt.
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) will increase €60/mt.
And Styrene Acrylonitrile (SAN) will increase €45/mt.
Trinseo is a global materials company and manufacturer of plastics and latex binders.
Meanwhile, the latest GC Intelligence market analysis suggests conditions remain volatile in the styrenics markets.
ABS is still critically short, with production issues adding further pressure on an already tight market.
SAN supply is in better shape, but the European market is far away from being awash with volumes.
And the PS market, having improved in the summer, has become tight again due to production issues.
