According to players in Thailand, domestic PP and PE prices in the country posted further decreases in the face of persistently stagnant demand as buyers remain on the sidelines in anticipation of seeing lower levels.

A distributor stated, “Local producers’ most recent PP and PE decreases have failed to revive trading activities as buyers are sticking to the sidelines due to the ongoing softening trend while purchases are made on an as needed basis nowadays.”

A second distributor commented, “Demand remains sluggish as buyers are still postponing their purchases with the expectation of seeing further decreases while most players are now waiting for the OPEC meeting, which will be held on November 27, in order to have a clearer opinion regarding the direction of crude oil markets for the near term.”

Local prices in Thailand currently stand at THB47500-49500/ton ($1449-1510/ton) for homo-PP injection and raffia, THB48000-50000/ton ($1464-1525/ton) for PP film, THB49500-50500/ton ($1510-1541/ton) for LDPE film, HDPE film and blow moulding and at THB50000-51000/ton ($1525-1556/ton) for LLDPE film, all on an FD Thailand, cash equivalent basis.
