A source from an Indonesian producer reported that they reduced their domestic prices for PP and PE at the start of the week.

The source stated that they lowered their PE prices by $20/ton for LLDPE and by $30/ton for HDPE while their PP prices are down by $30/ton for homo-PP raffia and injection and by $70/ton for PP block copolymer. The producer, meanwhile, maintained their homo-PP film, coating and BOPP prices.

The producer’s PE prices currently stand at $1230/ton for LLDPE film, at $1330/ton for LLDPE injection, at $1240/ton for HDPE film and blow moulding, at $1220/ton for HDPE injection and at $1260/ton for HDPE pipe (PE100), all on an FD Indonesia, cash basis. Their PP prices are at $1270/ton for PP block copolymer, at $1260/ton PP random copolymer, at $1220/ton for PP coating and BOPP, at $1140/ton for homo-PP raffia and injection and at $1210/ton for homo-PP film with the same terms.

“Demand is still not strong as buyers continue to purchase on a needs only basis while new import prices are being announced with decreases. We had been hoping that the recent strengthening in spot propylene costs would help support PP prices, but ongoing decreases in the import market are maintaining downward pressure on the local market,” the source commented.
