Egypt’s EPC lifts up PVC prices for April

A source from one of Egypt’s PVC producers, EPC, noted that the producer issued increases of EGP800/ton ($90/ton) on their PVC k67-68 and k70 prices for the first half of April.

Now, the producer offers k67-68 at EGP8400/ton ($946/ton) and k70 at EGP8550/ton ($963/ton) on ex-Alexandria, cash excluding VAT basis.

“Our increase decision came in line with the globally firming trend. We also considered the good demand we see from the local market when lifting up our prices. Most buyers prefer to meet their needs locally in the face of increasing US dollar exchange rates against the Egyptian pound. Right now, we operate at full capacity and we have sufficient stocks to deliver to the market,” further added the source.

Prior to their increase announcement, an increase decision was already expected from the producer since their prices were more competitive when compared to the distribution market levels and to the other PVC producer TCI Sanmar’s prices.
