Home Latest News & Insights PC PRICES SET TO ROLLOVER IN JANUARY 2024

GC Intelligence (London) – PC prices set to rollover. In the European polycarbonate sector, prices appear poised to maintain their current levels, with indications suggesting a rollover from December into January.

Attempts by suppliers to implement price increases have been largely thwarted. This is due to oversupply, fierce competition among sellers, and tepid demand.

While there have been minor price hikes, these were primarily limited to smaller accounts and did not represent a broader market trend.

Disruptions in the Suez Canal are introducing a new dimension to market dynamics. These are leading to increased costs for exporters to Europe, resulting in higher prices for imported polycarbonate.

This shift could potentially provide European suppliers with leverage to push for price increases in the future.

However, as of now, the overall polycarbonate pricing in Europe seems set to stay consistent with December levels.
