A source from a Chinese acetylene based PVC producer reported that they have implemented an increase on their local prices on the back of improved demand.

The producer raised their local prices by CNY150-200/ton ($24-32/ton), bringing their new offers to CNY5650/ton ex-warehouse China, cash including VAT basis ($790/ton without VAT). “We are able to conclude deals at this level as demand in the local market has improved recently. For April, we are feeling optimistic regarding the demand outlook,” the source stated.

The source added that they also raised their export prices by $20/ton to $810/ton FOB China, cash due to firmer global trends. He commented, “We are currently observing our Southeast Asian customers’ responses to our higher levels. Availability for US and Japanese origins are not that much nowadays owing to maintenance shutdowns. Hence, we are expecting to see a firm trend over the near term.”

A trader based in Hangzhou, meanwhile, reported that local acetylene based prices have increased around CNY100-200/ton ($16-32/ton) compared to last week while conventional PVC prices were also up by around CNY50-100/ton ($8-16/ton). He stated, “Ethylene based PVC supplies are regular and we believe that local prices will remain firm over the short term. Meanwhile, the gap between conventional based PVC and acetylene based PVC has started to narrow due to the relatively bigger gains recorded in acetylene based prices.”

The trader currently offers ethylene based PVC at CNY6050/ton ex-warehouse China, cash inc VAT basis ($846/ton without VAT) while their prices for acetylene based PVC stand at CNY5700-5800/ton with the same terms ($797-811/ton without VAT).
