A source from a Middle Eastern producer reported that they announced their October PE prices to Southeast Asian markets with rollovers from September. The producer maintained their October shipment PE offers at $1200/ton for HDPE film and blow moulding and at $1180/ton for LLDPE film, all on a CIF SEA, cash basis.

“Demand from Southeast Asia is not likely to be bright for October as regional producers’ offers are more competitive thanks to lower costs while Middle Eastern suppliers are reluctant to give further decreases as they think that they already lowered their prices significantly in the past months. We hope to see a rebound in prices for the coming month. However, many buyers taking a cautious stance and are expecting to receive discounts,” the source commented.

Last week, players in Southeast Asia reported that initial October PE prices from Middle Eastern producers were announced with increases of around $30-50/ton from September. Firmer prices were attributed to higher spot ethylene costs and some supply limitations.
