Import ABS prices break above $2000/ton threshold in China

China’s import ABS market opened the post-Chinese New Year holiday period on a bullish note as expected amidst strong upstream costs.

Import ABS prices broke above the $2000/ton threshold for the first time since October 2014, with a Taiwanese producer implementing a visible increase of $150/ton on their offers following the end of the holiday. The producer’s new offers stand at $2060/ton CIF China, cash.

A trader based in China attributed the producer’s hike decision to their limited allocation for ABS as well as firming styrene prices.

Spot styrene prices on an FOB South Korea basis surged by around $155/ton on a weekly basis to be quoted at $1550/ton at the end of last week. Meanwhile, spot butadiene prices were unchanged from a week earlier at $3070/ton CFR China.
