INEOS Olefins & Polymers revises pricing policy for July
INEOS Olefins and Polymers Europe has today revised its pricing policy for July, limiting any further polymer price decrease to no more than 70€/t against the C2, C3 monomer decreases of 170€/t.
This has been done in light of what Ineos considers to be an overcorrection in polymer pricing through May/June and the rapid escalation in oil/naphtha pricing currently underway.
INEOS will undertake this policy with immediate effect.
