Price Transmission in Crude Oil Industry to Drive Market Growth

While oil price fall has left the crude oil industry staggering, the plastics industry is relaxing. The plastic industry is strongly influenced by crude oil prices, as the plastic is mainly derived from petroleum products. This is the reason when crude oil crashed, the cost of plastic production dropped significantly and triggered a blast in production and demand.

Primary plastic product producers have hiked their product-cost by Rs. 1,000 in tune with the fluctuation in crude oil prices. Price of materials such as HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene), LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene), LLDPE (Linear Low Density Polyethylene), and PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) have also led to crude oil price fall.

According to the analysts, cheap oil promotes production of new plastic products and it is now more cost effective than recycling the plastic.
