Another Taiwanese producer lifts PS prices to Asia

A source from a Taiwanese producer reported that they applied increases on their PS offers to China and Southeast Asia given firmer styrene and butadiene prices.

The producer lifted their prices by $5/ton for GPPS and by $50-55/ton for HIPS when compared to last week, concluding GPPS deals at their offer levels of $1410/ton on a CIF China/SEA, cash basis. For HIPS, they concluded deals with a $10/ton discount from their offer levels at $1470/ton with the same terms.

The source commented, “Demand is not good and buyers are sidelined ahead of the holidays. We generally sell 7,000 tons of PS every month, but this month our sales were limited to 5,000 tons. For the near term, we expect prices to remain on a firm trend and not to show any significant drops due to rising raw material costs.”
