Some resin buyers have finally had an opportunity to catch their breath. The roller coaster ride of volatile polyethylene prices of the past few years smoothed out during the second half of 2013.

But resin markets are complex and changes are coming that could make the ride bumpy again.

Plastics News' Senior Reporter Frank Esposito offers in-depth analysis of the polyethylene market plus much more in the January Resin Report. The report is now available for free download.

The Resin Report includes a story about why the export market is booming to the extent that the chemical industry added jobs in 2013 for the first time in 13 years.

There is also an enlightening Question and Answer feature with David Barry, a senior editor with PetroChemWire LLC.

The report contains these pricing overviews: Polypropylene, commodity resins, PVC, Polyethylene, PET, Polystyrene and resin exports.

You will also get volatility trends and tables for PP, HDPE, PS and PET. There are also quarterly price trends for several key resins.

The reports will be available through a paid subscription and individual sale starting in late February, but you can download the 20-page January report for free.

Note: Your email address will be shared with the sponsor if the report is downloaded.
