05 Oct Silicone shortage puts pressure on manufacturers
Ongoing supply issues for raw silicone products from China are putting pressure on manufacturers and distributors.
Industry analysts say there is no end in sight for the supply shortages at least until the end of 2019. And that could spell bad news for end customers with prices of silicone-based products set to rise in coming months.
Fortunately for EPE customers, although we’re seeing longer lead times for suppliers to deliver silicone-based products, we have good stocks of Purosil silicone hose in our Bibra Lake warehouse so have been able to keep price increases to a minimum.
