Kemira increases prices of polymers in EMEA as of March 8th, 2021

Kemira, a global chemicals company, announces an update on price increases for all polymer products in the EMEA region across all segments. This revised announcement replaces the information published on January 26th, 2021.

Recent weeks have seen continued increases in the cost of key raw materials driven by tight supply and strong demand in Europe and globally. Hence, additional price adjustments are needed to compensate for higher costs incurred.

The following, revised total price increases will apply as of March 8th, 2021 or as contract terms allow. 

Product line Price increase
Dry powder polymers + 11-15%
Emulsion polymers + 11-15%
Polyamines & other liquid polymers + 8-10%

Price increases will vary based on geographic region and will differ by product type and may be higher in selected areas.

Kemira continues to be committed as a long-standing supplier of high-quality products and solutions for the water intensive industries globally.
