LONDON (ICIS)--Tightness in the European virgin PET market has driven prices up, but it is not clear whether supply will lengthen after the planned March maintenance turnarounds.

In the competing R-PET market, lack of product and strong demand also influenced some March negotiations, with preparations for the peak summer season ahead.

ICIS senior editor Caroline Murray and markets reporter Pavle Popovic discuss this and other talking points ahead of the ICIS PET Value Chain conference.
