In Egypt, a source from the local producer SIDPEC said that the producer hasve resumed production at its plant as of January 29 following an unexpected failure on January 17.

Following the restart of the plant, the producer revealed their new February offers with slight hikes from January, issuing an increase of EGP300/ton ($16/ton) compared with the previous month.

“Our costs have increased; hence we had to reflect the increases on our prices. However, the increase amounts were kept limited by the weakness in demand amidst the ongoing cash flow problems and high prices. We are making our deliveries to the market smoothly now and this week, we will be supplying HDPE film grade to the market from our HDPE film and b/m swing line,” reported the source.

The producer’s new February offers are standing at EGP21500/ton ($1132/ton) for film, at EGP21800/ton ($1147/ton) for blow moulding and at EGP21300/ton ($1121/ton) for injection, all on ex-Alexandria, 60 days deferred payment excluding VAT basis.
