The increase would be in addition to all previous price-increase announcements, Equistar said in the letter.

The letter said they would increase their August polypropylene prices by the change in polymer-grade propylene pricing for the month from July 2020.

PGP contracts settled June 29 at 26.5 cents/lb, moving up 5 cents/lb ($110/mt) from the May PGP price of 21.50 cents/lb.

The increase to the US June polymer-grade propylene contract price was in line with market expectations of a price increase.

The settlement marks the first price increase since September 2019, S&P Global Platts data showed.

PGP contract prices remain at an 11-year low and were last lower January 2009 at 22 cents/lb, according to Platts data.
