PC price see gradual increases. In April, European polycarbonate (PC) prices experienced minor increases due to a seasonal uptick in demand and tightening supply chains.

The sheet extrusion sector particularly felt the impact of rising freight costs and transport disruptions, leading to noticeable price hikes.

With ongoing supply shortages, price forecasts have been revised upward for extrusion grades, anticipating continued trends into summer.

Although there was a modest improvement in demand within the extrusion market, other sectors like automotive and construction remained sluggish.

Operational disruptions at more than one production facility in Europe exacerbated supply issues, particularly affecting availability in the already strained extrusion sector.
