ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decline in the prices resins in China. The decline in the demand for polyethylene (PE) is attributed to the low operating rate in downstream plants. The price of polypropylene (PP) declined in response to the supply increase of PP and the soft demand for PP in downstream sectors. The price drop of styrene monomer and the soft demand for polystyrene (PS) in downstream sectors have influenced producers to lower their prices.
