Polymer buyers in Latin America ask how low prices can go

July 24, 2015 (5:28 mins)



Prices for polymers in Latin America have drifted lower recently, and it's a stressful time to be a seller in the markets at the moment. Emmanuel Gallegos, who covers Latin American polymer markets, talks with Chris Ferrell, who covers US polymer markets, about why buyers in Latin America are waiting for even lower polymer prices, how Brazil's economy is influencing its export market for polyethylene and polypropylene, and where prices may go in the future.
