Vietnam PP and PE markets buckle under stalling demand and excess import supplies
by Shibu Itty Kuttickal
Suppressed demand has kept PP and PE markets in Vietnam bearish, with buyers out only for immediate requirements, taking prices to new lows for more than two years. Import supplies from the US and re-exports from China are also denting hopes for a revival in market sentiment...

Demand stifles price recovery across petchem chain, outweighing supply cutbacks
by Esra Ersöz
Petchem producers, stuck between the precipitous climb in energy costs and a steep decline in demand, have been forced to lower run rates around the globe, particularly since June. Although this has resulted in an unprecedented cutback in the petrochemical supply chain, any price recovery has proved short-lived so far, as underlying demand is fundamentally not there...

About ChemOrbis Polyethylene (PE) prices and Plastics News

Polyethylene (PE) is a product group produced by the conversion of ethylene monomer through a process of polymerization. Polyethylene (PE) is the world's most common plastic in use today. It is divided into three groups: Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE), High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE)

Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is used in greenhouse covering materials, stretch and shrink films while Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) is mostly used in packaging and plastic bags. High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), on the other hand, is further divided into film, injection, blow molding and pipe grades and it is used in a variety of products and applications. HDPE film is used in the manufacture of bags and HDPE injection is used in the manufacture of fruit crates. HDPE blow molding is used in the manufacture of cleaning and cosmetic bottles while HDPE pipe is used in infrastructure applications.

When looked at the most important buyer and supplier countries in the Polyethylene (PE) market, the USA tops the list of net PE exporters as it accounts for over 20% of the world’s total PE exports. Although far behind the USA’s share, Singapore, Canada and Belgium follow in the list. China yet again ranks as the biggest importer, accounting for more than 30% of the world’s total PE imports as of 2020. China is followed by relatively smaller markets, such as Turkey, Italy and Vietnam.
