October 2022 Price Changes
Resin in all regions (North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia, Southeast Asia) were mostly lower once again in October. This is the continuation of a trend which began in late May. There has been no catalyst for price increases in the second half of 2022 to this point. And there are no Atlantic hurricanes forecasted for early November so the situation should continue.
