This follows a month-long market consultation that started on April 22.

The majority of feedback received by Fastmarkets during the consultation period indicated agreement with discontinuation of these prices.

Over the past year, liquidity has been low in these sectors, and market participants have told Fastmarkets that these markets are currently not priced on a spot basis but through long-term contracts. Fastmarkets will continue to monitor these markets.

The last assessments were published on May 7 and no further assessments will be made.

All historical data relating to these prices prior to their suspension will remain available in the pricing section of the Fastmarkets website.

If you are affected by this price discontinuation, please contact Please add the subject heading ‘FAO: Alice Mason/Justin Yang, re: CPC, FRP and extrusion prices.’
