This article focuses on the sentiment of the U.S. market on polyethylene terephthalate (PET). PET prices looked set to stay firm on the back of surging demand from the U. S. and stable feedstock costs. It added that it expected PET prices to remain above US$1150/tonne fob Asia for October as the PET plants in the US that were affected by Hurricane Katrina would need at least a month to resume full operations and increase inventory levels.
