PODCAST: US PP faces strong demand, tight feedstock supply

Author: Zachary Moore


HOUSTON (ICIS)--US polypropylene (PP) supplies remain extremely tight in the US, especially for copolymer grades, even though a number of hurricane-related outages have been resolved.

PP demand, meanwhile, has been strong in recent months as the US manufacturing sector has been in expansionary mode for the past several months.

Deputy Managing Editor and PP expert Zachary Moore discusses this and more in this podcast interview by Anna Matherne and Alex Snodgrass.
