A source from a Southeast Asian producer reported that they have reduced their PS prices to the regional markets by $40-50/ton from last week. The producer’s new offers are standing at $1600/ton for GPPS injection and at $1650/ton for HIPS injection, both on a CIF SEA, cash basis. The source said, “The market remains quiet. We are running our plant at full capacity.”

Meanwhile, an agent of a Taiwanese producer also reported that their supplier has lowered PS prices to the regional markets by $10/ton for GPPS to $1570/ton and by $30/ton for HIPS to $1620-1630/ton, all on a CIF SEA, cash basis. The distributor commented, “Prices are down as demand is still sluggish while upstream markets are not supporting the sellers’ hands. We are not feeling optimistic about the near-term outlook and expecting to see some further reductions.”
