In Kenya, a film products converter reported receiving new October PP and PE prices with increases from a major Saudi Arabian producer.

“The Saudi producer’s new offers are reasonably higher by around $20/ton from September. However, in Kenya, players are still suffering from the generally weak economic conditions which have been worsened by the depreciation of the local currency, which has fallen by around 20% against the US dollar. Since demand remains slow, we prefer not to make large purchases. We prefer to meet our needs until the market gains some sort of stability.”

The buyer received HDPE film, LDPE film and LLDPE film at $1300/ton and PP film at $1170/ton on a CFR Mombasa, Kenya, 90 days basis.
