In Egypt, one of the local PVC producers, EPC, revealed their new October PVC prices with increases of EGP100/ton ($13/ton) for the first half of the month.

The producer now offers k67-68 at EGP7100/ton ($907/ton) and k70 at EGP7250/ton ($926/ton) on an ex-Alexandria, cash not including VAT basis.

A source from the producer commented, “We lifted our prices in line with improved demand in the local market since most players have been avoiding importing PVC given the new regulations at customs as well as increasing prices for US cargoes. Many prefer to meet their needs locally and we run our plant at full capacity. Regarding exports, we are not planning to export any cargoes this month as we are able to obtain better margins in our own local market. Meanwhile, players seem to accept our increase amount since it is found reasonable.”
