The article presents updates related to the polymer market. Although polymer producers are coming up against increasing pressure to lower prices in line with softer crude, October numbers remained steady, with some relatively modest price erosion. The snug availability of some products, such as high density polyethylene, polypropylene and polyvinyl chloride, has contributed to this stability, but November could see prices dip, although sellers are generally targeting rollover positions.
