An end product manufacturer operating in Jordan reported receiving lower PE prices both from a major Saudi Arabian producer as well as an Emirati producer.

The buyer commented, “Prices remain on a softening note as trading activities are still sluggish. Although the new levels we received indicate decreases from the initial January levels, players still try to achieve lower deal levels. Meanwhile, the Emirati producer has already sold out their rather limited cargoes at competitive levels. Regarding our end product demand, we see no light at the end of the tunnel as our trade performs slowly.”

The buyer received $20-40/ton lower prices from a major Saudi producer, who now offers HDPE film at $1160/ton, LDPE film at $1170/ton and LLDPE film at $1180/ton on a CIP Amman, 90 days basis. Meanwhile, an Emirati producer’s HDPE film offers indicate $60/ton declines from early January levels at $1090/ton on a CIF Amman, 90 days basis.
