Traders in Southeast Asia report that they are receiving an increasing number of coal based homo-PP offers from China at competitive levels. The emergence of coal based PP in Southeast Asia indicates that Chinese sellers are seeking export opportunities due to sufficient supplies in their own domestic market.

A trader operating in Vietnam reported that they received an offer for Chinese coal based PP raffia and injection at a competitive level of $1250/ton CIF, cash. “We are now evaluating this offer as we find it competitive relative to Middle Eastern prices. Demand is slower in the local market while supplies remain sufficient. Hence, we are planning to wait for a while before deciding on our next purchase,” he commented.

Another trader based in Malaysia reported that they have some Chinese coal based homo-PP materials. The trader said that they are able to sell these cargos to Vietnam as Vietnamese buyers are finding the quality of the material acceptable. The trader added that they are also trying to improve their penetration of the Malaysian and Indonesian markets. The trader is offering Chinese homo-PP at $1250/ton CIF SEA, cash.

In Southeast Asia, overall import homo-PP raffia and injection prices are currently reported at $1250-1380/ton on a CIF SEA, cash equivalent basis.
