Listen: Weaker Asian currencies, regional economies seen to limit polymer price rebound

Polypropylene demand typically peaks in August and September, while the fourth quarter is a strong one for polyethylene. But with various macroeconomic issues hounding Asia, trade sources say rebound in polymer prices may be limited in the remaining months of 2015. In this podcast, Platts managing editor Ng Bao Ying is joined by editors Heng Hui and Yi-Jeng Huang in looking at how China's yuan devaluation and feedstock prices have affected polymer prices. They also discuss possible trends towards the end of the year, particularly in an environment of weaker economies and currencies.
