A source from Egypt’s one of PE producers, the Egyptian Ethylene and Derivatives Company (ETHYDCO), reported that they issued their March PE prices to the local market with decreases from their most recent February levels.

The producer elected to lower their local prices by EGP2400/ton ($148/ton) for LLLDPE film, by EGP500/ton ($31/ton) for HDPE film and EGP200/ton ($12/ton) for HDPE inj., bringing their new offers to EGP22600/ton ($1414/ton) for LLDPE film, to EGP21200/ton ($1326/ton) for HDPE film, to EGP21000/ton ($1314/ton) for b/m and to 20300/ton ($1270/ton) for HDPE inj., all on an ex-Alexandria, cash not including VAT basis. The official exchange rate is used for the US dollar calculations.

“We lowered our offers as prices dropped in the locally-held market from late January to late February amid the depreciating US dollar and we want preserve our competitive levels. In addition, demand remains slow and we are receiving limited inquires. We also have adequate stock levels and our deliveries will be smooth. Our operations at the plant are performing regularly. Our first line is currently producing LLDPE while our second line is producing HDPE pipe,” said the source.
