Vicky Ellis


LONDON (ICIS)–Jumping freight rates, political elections and monsoons are all at play for June in various polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) markets around the world, so while it is potentially a calm month on the surface, there is a complex mix of factors to watch.

Senior editors for PE and PP, Nadim Salamoun and Ben Lake join senior editor manager Vicky Ellis to discuss the June outlook for Europe, Middle East, south Asia and Africa.

They also touch on May as a busy month for PE and PP, pointing listeners to ICIS coverage at APIC in Seoul and Italy’s plastic tax extension.
