Further PS decreases from Taiwanese producer to China, SE Asia

A source from a Taiwanese producer reported that they applied further decreases on their PS offers to China and Southeast Asia when compared to last week in the face of persistently weak demand as well as weak energy and upstream markets. The producer has been steadily decreasing its PS offers to the region for the past two months.

The producer decreased its PS offers this week by $40-50/ton for GPPS and by $20-30/ton for HIPS respectively to $1200/ton and to $1300/ton on CIF China/SEA, cash basis.

A source from the producer commented, “We are still open to give $20-30/ton discounts from our offer levels. Demand remains weak as customers either place lower bids or stay on the sidelines. Although their inventories are low, buyers may not purchase much in the days ahead as May-July is the low season. As a result of the current market conditions, we will shut our HIPS line at the end of this month for 2-3 weeks.”
