Weekly Commodity Price Report

Methodology & subscription details

We at myCEPPI are continuously analyzing and evaluating the Central and Eastern European polymer market prices and its trends. The collected information and conclusions are being summarized in the Weekly Commodity Price Report. The report gives you a subtle insight on what is happening on the market, supports deeper understanding of the reasons behind market movements and could confirm your thoughts when having doubts.

The WCPR is being published online until Monday morning. Usually that means that you have access to the freshest issue on Sunday evening already, endorsing you to start a week with more information. Every month on week 1-3. the main focus of the report is the price evaluation and on the 4. week it is published as a monthly forecast.

Regional and sub-regional price information

In the WCPR the Central and Eastern European (CE) price information is available on the level of country groups:

North Central Europe (NCE): Baltics States, Poland
Middle of Central Europe (MCE): Czech Republic. Slovak Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia
South Central Europe (SCE): Bulgaria, Serbia, Montenegro, Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Albania
Eastern Central Europe (ECE): Ukraine, Moldova
Central European Average (CE): Weighted average of sub-regional prices (weight: yearly demand)

Data providers and the provided data

Local resin manufacturers: FCA prices
Multinational resin producers: DDU/DDP prices
Traders, distributors: List prices, FCA
Local plastics converters: Purchasing prices, without discounts (middle size)

The prices might seem to be mixed in terms of parity, however these all mean a price typical on a certain market, the differences in parities result from the characteristics of the player concerned. The prices always refer to a full truck load (20-22.5 tons).

The meaning of the individual price information

There are 3 types of price information in our publications

Low prices (€): the lowest price found in the segment concerned during that week
