Trinseo announces price decreases for acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), according to a note on its website.
The announcement states that the decrease of €20/mt will be effective from 1 October 2022.
At the same time, Trinseo announced an increase of €60/mt for its PC/ABS.
The announcements come against a backdrop of weak demand and competitive imports in Europe, particularly for ABS.
However, soaring energy costs are placing pressure not only on ABS but on all polymers. In some cases this is leading to increases, despite the weak demand.
