LATEST NEWS: US LLDPE breaks below $1000 CFR threshold in Turkey

A few converters in Turkey reported receiving more competitive import LLDPE c4 film prices for US cargos from last week. Accordingly, prices have broken below the $1000/ton threshold on the low end as offers emerged at $980/ton CFR Turkey, subject to 6.5% customs duty, cash.

Activity for PE has been subdued amid Ramadan lull and economic uncertainties in the country during the recent weeks, while LLDPE supply was considered adequate.

“US PE offers have been under pressure given the narrow gap between them and Middle Eastern origins. Their long delivery terms also curtailed their competitive power in the import market as buyers are unwilling to secure long distance cargos,” commented players.

Earlier in May, US LLDPE film offers were quoted at $1020-1030/ton with the same terms before prices touched $1000/ton at the start of this week. Middle Eastern LLDPE prices were reported between $1030-1060/ton subject to 6.5% duty earlier this month, meanwhile.
