AKRON, OHIO - Plastics News On the Web's newly implemented subscriber zone now offers extensive historical resin pricing data. Users of this new feature will be able to select one of the 75 or so offered grades, define the time frame of interest, and pull up a table indicating low, high and average U.S. market prices for that resin, and the dates when we indicated they changed in the market. Such searches also will yield a graph tracking that resin's price history (see sample below).
In most cases, our data goes back to Plastics News' launch date of March 6, 1989.
Soon, we plan also to offer graphs that compare price histories of multiple grades of competitive or comparable resins.
