PET.- Raw materials once again point to an increase in PET prices.
High freight rates, including the high cost of hiring containers (prices above 14,000 USD / FCL) are causing delays in the supply of raw materials and decreased imports of polymer commodities, including PET.
This situation in Europe is causing an imbalance between supply and demand, favoring price increases, especially in the spot market.
The evolution of the price of oil also marks an upward price trend.
