Market players informed that the raw material prices are increasing still daily, but exporters started giving offers for exports again; however, they offer primarily for prompt shipments and small quantities.

There are considerable differences in price offers on a supplier basis.

It is also stated that some exporters cancelled their contracts made at much lower prices at the beginning of the Season.

The raw material prices fluctuate between 45-50 TL/kg nowadays, and it seems that the storm has calmed down slightly since the traders have sufficient raw material on their stocks in the meantime.
