According to players in India, offers for Chinese acetylene based PVC have reemerged after a prolonged period of absence. Import prices for acetylene based PVC had last been reported in India in October 2014.

A trader based in China said that they are offering acetylene based PVC at $780-800/ton CIF India, cash, subject to $123/ton anti-dumping duty. “We are receiving a good number of inquiries from Indian buyers in spite of the high anti-dumping duty. We are currently negotiating with some customers and hope to be able to conclude some deals soon,” the trader commented.

A pipe and fitting manufacturer stated, “We have recently resumed purchasing Chinese acetylene based PVC, despite the high anti-dumping duties, as supply is limited in the local market. We purchased Taiwanese PVC at $900/ton CIF, cash this week, but we are currently looking for other offers as we want to secure more cargoes out of concerns that prices will continue to rise in the coming weeks.

Offers for mainstream PVC origins currently stand at $850-900/ton CIF India, cash equivalent basis while offers for Chinese acetylene based PVC stand at $780-800/ton with the same terms.
