Local PVC prices move lower in Thailand

Players in Thailand report that local producers implemented decreases on their domestic PVC prices in the face of persistently slow demand.

A PVC pipe manufacturer reported that two different local producers reduced their PVC offers by THB1500/ton ($42/ton), bringing their new levels to THB29500/ton ($818/ton) on an FD Thailand, cash basis. The converter commented, “We were expecting to see smaller decreases from local producers given the depreciation of Thai baht against the US dollar. Demand for our end products remains weak as the rainy season is still in place in the southern part of the country.”

A distributor added, “Demand in Thailand remains sluggish. Hence, local producers may try to limit their allocations.”

Meanwhile, a source from a local producer stated, “Demand is not showing any signs of real improvement for the short term. However, we feel that sentiment may start to shift in October as most of our customers have been delaying their purchases for some time and they will need to return to market to replenish soon. On the other hand, thin demand and lower upstream costs continue to exert downward pressure on the PVC market.”
