Sellers in China’s export PVC market report that acetylene based PVC prices have recently moved above ethylene based PVC. Low supply levels, firmer futures, higher coal prices and environmental inspections contributed to the firming PVC trend in the country.

A Shanghai based trader noted, “Export prices for acetylene based PVC posted additional increases from last week and producers are focusing on selling to the local market rather than exports.”

Another trader also stated, “It is hard to sell acetylene based PVC nowadays as they are standing at higher levels than ethylene based PVC.”

In China, acetylene based PVC prices are currently reported at $850-890/ton FOB China, cash while ethylene based PVC prices are standing at $860-880/ton with the same terms.
