Kemira has announced price increases for all polymers globally in the industry and water, pulp and paper, and the oil and gas businesses.
Price increases will vary based on geographic region and will differ by product type and may be higher in selected areas.
The following increases will become effective immediately or as contract terms allow:
Dry powder polymers will increase by 10-15%, emulsion polymers will increase by 8-15%, other liquid polymers will increase by 10-20%.
The company said: “As global demand continues to rebound post-Covid, the supply of key raw materials remains heavily constrained.
“The supply-demand balance is significantly increasing the cost of raw materials, logistics, packaging, and utilities.”
