TRINSEO SEEKS PRICE INCREASES FOR SAN AND ABS

January 11, 2023

Trinseo seeks price increases for SAN and ABS in January versus December following the triple-digit increase in the styrene contract price.

Trinseo seeks price increases of €35/mt for its acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS). While for styrene acrylonitrile (SAN), the company is targeting an increase of €50/mt.

The increase most certainly aims to offset the increase in the raw material styrene monomer price.

In January, the styrene contract price increased by €115/mt, following a surprise increase further upstream of €145/mt on benzene.
