I. ECEBD-CPS
Our company, ECEBD is the leading marketing consultant company in the field of plastics industry within the Central and Eastern European region. We can quote most leading plastics manufacturing and compounding firms as well as resin manufacturers among customers. The information contained in our ChemIT plastics processing database is accessible to these firms.

The obvious and dynamic development of the plastic converting industry in Central and Eastern Europe, expanding by 8-9% annually warranted the development of a plastic raw material price monitoring system in the region, reflecting local prices, which provide the stakeholders with weekly updated price information. 

This offers an unmatched possibility for the market players and for the end-users to get acquainted with the price levels prevailing in a given country, so that converters could optimize their raw material purchasing costs using these benchmark values on the one hand, and raw material manufacturers could observe and determine the relevant prices and development tendencies on the given market on the other hand.

We firmly believe that our service provides the necessary level of information for both converters and resin manufacturers, and it makes easier the daily business for them.

II. Our service
We provide price information collected from the following countries:

  • Hungary
  • Czech Republic
  • Slovakia
  • Poland
  • Romania
  • Serbia and Montenegro
  • Slovenia
  • Bulgaria
  • Croatia
  • Ukraine
  • Baltic States (3 countries)

Resins involved in the monitoring system include first polyolefins in 2006, with the following grades:

Price information is provided of these resin types weekly (every Monday at am 9:00 CET), including the typical average, minima and maxima of the previous week, per country and per resin type and the name of it’s supplier.

III. Method of data collection
350-500 plastics converters participate in the information collection and research activity from the listed countries. When selecting the sample we paid due attention to achieve a representative coverage for each country and for each resin type.
 
Collected data are published in an aggregate manner so that data of individual firms never appear. We assume a legally binding responsibility to handle all data confidentially and never make them available in any detailed form to any third party.

If a plastic converter firm registers and signs an agreement with us, in return for a weekly 5 minutes (telephone based )information collection procedure we provide a free access to the price monitoring results collected in the given country.

The service is available to anyone until May 31th 2006. Thereafter it remains free only for our contracted partners, for others it will be accessible in return for an annual payment (cps@ecebd.com). Please indicate your possible intention to participate in supplying the data, as the number of participant firms is strictly limited.
