Import PVC sees limited buying interest in Europe

As local PVC deals are being concluded with rollovers to small increases for July in Europe, import offers continue to enter the market. Even though some of these non-European cargoes are offering a competitive edge, buying interest isn’t considered to be strong due to the summer lull.

In Italy, US k70 was dealt at €860/ton DDP, including 6.5% customs duty, 60 days. This deal level is stable compared to last week when a buyer reported receiving July offers for the same material with rollovers from June. Another buyer was offered US k70 at a quite competitive level of €800/ton on a DDP basis last week, but this level wasn’t repeated.

A converter in Germany, however, was offered US k58 at €800/ton DDP, including 6.5% customs duty, 60 days deferred payment this week, which is an indication that US PVC offers at the €800/ton threshold haven’t fully disappeared from the market.

For Mexican cargoes, a compounder in Italy received k58 offers with rollovers from June at €830/ton DDP, 60 days. Last week, some offers and done deals were reported for Mexican origins with late August delivery at €780/ton for k67 and at €790/ton for k58, k64-65 and k70 on a CIF, 60 days deferred payment basis. These levels, which are unchanged from June, come to around €825/ton for k67 and to €835/ton for specialty grades when adjusted to a DDP basis.
