In the United Arab Emirates, new November prices have started to emerge both in the import and local markets.

The local Emirati producer issued $40-50/ton increases on their HDPE and LLDPE film offers at $1160-1170/ton and at $1220/ton, respectively, while they issued rollovers on their PP raffia and injection prices at $1020/ton on FD Dubai, United Arab Emirates, cash basis.

A trader commented, “Despite the rollover they issued on their PP prices, the local producer lifted their PE prices because their PE offers were very low during October.” According to him, overall demand continues to remain weak in the country.

Meanwhile, another trader reported receiving new November PE prices from a major Saudi Arabian producer with $50-80/ton increases. According to him, the producer lifted their HDPE film offers by $80/ton to $1330/ton while they raised their LDPE and LLDPE film offers by $50/ton to $1290/ton on CIF Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 90 days deferred payment basis.

“We think that overall demand is not that bad and is improving to some degree. Buyers will want to secure some cargoes before the year end. Regarding supplies, no availability issues are felt,” he commented.
