Plastics, resins & HDPE report: December 2017
The PVC market has mostly recovered from the hurricane season. The typical slowing demand during the winter months and stabilized pricing has led PVC manufacturers to begin discounting again, which should continue in the coming months prior to spring. Availability is good and likely to continue during the next few months.
The HDPE resin market has found footing with the hurricane season coming to a close. Basically, all resin producers are back on line, and the supply chain has been rendered whole. Pipe prices are believed to remain stable through the month and lead times have normalized.
