Egypt’s SIDPEC reveals May PE prices with hikes

A source from Egypt’s HDPE producer SIDPEC reported that their new May prices are EGP800/ton ($105/ton) higher than their April prices.

SIDPEC now offers HDPE film at EGP12800/ton ($1678/ton), HDPE blow moulding at EGP12900/ton ($1691/ton) and HDPE injection at EGP12700-12900/ton ($1665-1691/ton) on ex-Alexandria, cash excluding VAT basis.

“When considering the globally increasing prices, our hike amount can be deemed as reasonable. However, it is still early to judge the demand as our hike announcement came at the end of last week. At the moment, we run our plant at full capacity for both our production lines while we will be delivering HDPE film to the market this week,” commented the source.

Prior to SIDPEC’s increase announcement, it was highlighted in the most recent ChemOrbis Egypt PE Polymer Digest that the local producer was under upward pressure both from the higher import market levels as well as the firmer prices in the distribution market.
