In Thailand and Malaysia, local PVC prices have posted some decreases in line with weaker upstream costs and slower market activities.

A source from a Thai producer reported that they have implemented a decrease of THB500-1000/ton ($15-30/ton) on their local PVC prices. The source stated, “We are planning to receive buyers’ response to our new prices before deciding our next move. Decreasing upstream costs are encouraging buyers to ask for additional discounts.” The producer is currently offering PVC at THB33500/ton ($1034/ton) FD Thailand, cash.

A converter in Malaysia reported that they were offered local PVC cargoes at MYR3400/ton ($1036/ton) FD Malaysia, cash. He commented, “Domestic PVC prices have fallen around MYR50/ton ($15/ton). Demand is sluggish and our end product business is not showing any sign of real improvement. We are not feeling optimistic regarding the near-term outlook.”

In Asia, spot VCM prices have decreased $5/ton on the week to be quoted at around $880/ton on a CFR Asia basis, the lowest level since May, according to data from ChemOrbis Price Wizard.
