The BFM has negotiated on behalf of its members’ a weekly foam chemical price market report commentary.


The report looks at current prices and future market sentiment. These costs can be significant for upholstery and bed/mattress companies in particular. The new benefit compliments the existing material price tracking data.

See here for price database.

As an example, some highlights from the report ending the week 31st August 2018:

  • TDI – European Prices have fallen since June and are under pressure with low demand and lengthier supply since August.
  • Polyols – The European polyols market expectation for September is for it to be stable but year-on-year prices are slightly down and price sentiment shows a further tendency to fall
  • MDI - prices were stable but there are signs of upward pressures
