bluconnection review 2018 and outlook 2019


  • 2018 was dominated by short supply of indigo due to temporary shutdowns and relocation activities of indigo suppliers.
  • continued price increases throughout 2018 exceeded our prediction.
  • present trend indicates price levels exceeding 10.00 usd/kg until march 2019.
  • we expect supply situation to improve by the second quarter of 2019.
  • with improved supply situation prices may stabilize or soften.
  • until further notice we work with a planning horizon of one month for both quantity and price.
  • we do not compromise our high environmental, safety & health standards. we continue to work in all areas of our company to improve further and to provide highest quality, cost – efficient and most environmentally friendly products.

we are confident to manage the challenges ahead and make 2019 a rewarding year for all of us.
