PC prices increase €105-140/mt in December, according to GC Intelligence market analysis. The upward trend continues for polycarbonate (PC) prices.
Producers facing good demand, supply disruptions, and higher costs, are gradually passing the big increases announced recently.
The spike in gas prices after the summer pushed up electricity prices. The higher energy costs in turn acted as a catalyst influencing producers to announce increases of up to €650/mt in November.
Buyers have for now avoided the entire announced increases. But producers have been firm to move prices up substantially during the course of a few months, and for the most part they are succeeding.
