Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) Market Prices, Forecasts, and Analysis

Market Update

April 2022

In April, the war in Ukraine has continued to push up the price of raw materials and other costs. The price of ammonia has increased considerably because of the high gas prices, and the price of acetone is apparently also going up.

Logistic disruptions and high transport costs have also been supporting prices. Road transport costs have increased because of a scarcity of drivers due to the war and covid infections, and because of the increasing fuel prices.

Shipping costs remain high with little prospect of decreasing, a view reinforced by the current rise in covid infections in China which threatens further disruptions at ports in the region. Meanwhile, the higher gas prices were also pushing up electricity prices, adding another burden on costs.

The price of high impact PMMA increased €560/mt, injection moulding increased €420/mt, and extrusion €250/mt. Several buyers were able to negotiate lower increases, but none managed to secure rollovers.

As energy prices are stabilising at high levels, there is a chance that the current upside will level off, but the market may have to wait longer for decreases.
