The article presents updates on market trends in the chemical industry. Snug high density polyethylene supply has led to increases in February 2007 contracts averaging € 30/tonne. Linear low density polyethylene numbers moved up by an average €10-20/ tonne in a market environment supportive of hikes. Polypropylene contracts rose by €10-20/tonne. Prices were propelled by strong propylene values, with a tight market expected as a result of turnarounds.
