The article focuses on the outlook by Isidro Quirogo, vice president for the base plastics division of Dow Chemical Co. in Europe, for the European polyethylene (PE) market. As Europe's polyolefin producers push through modest increases in May numbers, Quirogo says that market fundamentals look firm this year, with no significant new capacity scheduled and demand growth reasonably good. He says PE offtake grew 4% in 2005 across the region and demand at the end-user level is still decent.
