A distributor reported that they reduced their local PP and PE prices to Indonesia due to slow demand as well as weaker upstream markets.

The distributor cut their homo-PP film and injection prices by $40-50/ton to $1800/ton and $1740/ton, respectively, both on FD Indonesia, cash basis. Their local raffia prices are standing at $1700/ton with the same terms.

For PE products, the distributor revised their offers downward by $30-40/ton to $1640-1650/ton for LDPE film, to $1670/ton for LLDPE film and to $1670-1680/ton for HDPE film, injection and blow moulding, all on FD Indonesia cash basis.

He commented, “Local demand is not strong nowadays while the upstream markets are continuously weakening. Hence, we reduced our offers in order to speed up our sales. For the near term, we expect to see some further reductions.”

In Indonesia, local PE prices are currently reported at $1640-1650/ton for LDPE film, at $1670-1730/ton for LLDPE film and at $1670-1700/ton for HDPE film while the current PP prices are standing at $1680-1730/ton for raffia, at $1800/ton for homo-PP film and at $1740-1810/ton for homo-PP injection, all on FD Indonesia, cash equivalent basis.
