Due to continued significant increases in costs, IGM Resins is announcing price increases on its Omnirad, Esacure and Omnipol photoinitiator portfolio.

Key drivers for these increases are the impact of the global shortage of key raw materials for the production of photoinitiators and the increase in energy and transportation costs over the last months, impacting IGM’s costs position. The increases will be effective as of November 1st and will vary per product per region.

IGM Resins says it continues to focus on providing security of supply to its customers around the world. Specifically, its site in Mortara, Italy, the only photoinitiator production site in Europe and the largest outside of China, is already almost China-independent at the level of both first- and second-tier raw materials and will be fully China-independent by January 2022. In addition, while IGM Resins’ new, state-of-the-art Anqing production site in China is not currently impacted by local regulatory controls, IGM Resins is working with its partners to undertake further strong risk and mitigation planning.
