Report summary

This Insight explains how risk management companies are now regularly providing polypropylene (PP) fixed price swaps and physical PP railcar sales contracts to consumers. The impact of recent increases in PP fixed price swap activity has resulted in higher-than-expected Polymer Grade Propylene prices over the past two months. This is due to the fact that sellers of the fixed price PP swaps are also buying physical propylene and CME futures contracts as a hedge against their PP sales.
