According to players in China, import PE prices witnessed additional decreases of around $10/ton at the start of this week owing to lower upstream costs and lackluster demand.

A trader operating in Shanghai reported, “PE prices continue to follow a softer path in China as buyers are sticking to the sidelines in anticipation of seeing lower levels.” A second trader based in Guangzhou added, “Sentiment is weak given declining futures prices. We are taking a cautious stance and are delaying our purchases for now.”

In China, overall import PE prices currently stand at $1270-1350/ton for LDPE film, at $1190-1260/ton for LLDPE film and at $1270-1320/ton for HDPE film, all on a CIF, cash equivalent basis.

Meanwhile, data from ChemOrbis Price Index shows that import LDPE and HDPE film prices on a CIF China basis are currently standing at their lowest levels since the end of March while import LLDPE film prices with the same terms have declined to their lowest levels since mid-February.
