Türkiye’s PP market signals stabilization on supply limitations
by Merve Madakbaşı
Import PPH prices seem to have snapped a two-month downfall as diminishing import supply came to the fore again.

Bearish run for PE persists in Italy and West Europe
by Manolya Tufan
May marked the second consecutive month of PE drops in Italy and West Europe, with initial offers indicating decreases of up to €60/ton as opposed to meagre rollover attempts in some cases.

China’s post-holiday PP, PE outlook clouded by bearish factors
by Thi Huong Nguyen
Pre-holiday PP and PE markets in China have remained on a cautiously firm footing in line with support from intensive maintenance turnarounds and high costs.
