In China, a distributor reported that they concluded a deal for acetylene based PVC with a discount of CNY100/ton ($16/ton) at CNY5600/ton ex-warehouse China, cash including VAT ($781/ton without VAT).

He commented, “Acetylene based PVC sellers are trying to reduce their offers gradually in order to restore competitiveness relative to ethylene based PVC prices. However, most buyers still prefer ethylene based cargoes, which are standing at more attractive levels due to plunging energy and upstream costs. We expect to see further softening in the market ahead of the approaching Chinese New Year holidays.”

According to data from ChemOrbis Price Index, ethylene based PVC prices have regained their premium over acetylene based PVC cargoes after being traded $25-30/ton below acetylene based prices for about two weeks. The price gap between the two products is now standing at around $45/ton.
