Polyethylene US Transcript
The weekly US polyethylene (PE) report covers eight grades of high density polyethylene (HDPE), linear low polyethylene (LLDPE) and low density polyethylene (LDPE).
Domestic price quotes in the report provide a reference for the US contract market.
Our methodology is to post net prices for small-volume buyers.
US contract discussions occur monthly, but the weekly report gives buyers an update on market sentiment leading up to the assessment of prices.
Export price quotes address the remaining 20–30% of US product that goes offshore.
The report also tracks ethylene trends, including major plant outages, contract settlements and spot-trading activity. The information from the report originates from producers, traders and buyers of PE.
Customers enjoy reading the US PE report because it provides accurate pricing, as well as international context and varied viewpoints to judge the direction of the market.
