In Saudi Arabia, a major local producer revealed their new February PP, PVC, PE, PS and PET prices to the local market. The producers issued rollovers to slight decreases of SAR38/ton ($10/ton) for PE while they issued larger drops of SAR112/ton ($30/ton) on their homo-PP prices. The producer also revealed their February PS prices with SAR38/ton ($10/ton) cuts.

The producer’s prices stand at SAR4013/ton ($1070/ton) for HDPE film, SAR4125/ton ($1100/ton) for HDPE blow moulding, SAR4200/ton ($1120/ton) for HDPE injection, SAR4125/ton ($1100/ton) for LDPE film, SAR4050/ton ($1080/ton) for LLDPE film, SAR3263/ton ($870/ton) for PP raffia and injection, SAR4200/ton ($1120/ton) for GPPS inj., SAR4500/ton ($1200/ton) for HIPS inj., SAR3255/ton ($868/ton) for PET bottle and SAR3000/ton ($800/ton) for PVC k67-68 on an FD Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, cash basis.

A converter operating in Jeddah commented on the new announcements, saying, “We see slightly improved demand for our end products and market sentiment has been slowly improving. Meanwhile, availability is comfortable.”

Meanwhile, a distributor stated, “Demand is still quiet and supplies are limited. However, due to quiet buying interest, supply levels are not considered to be tight. Buyers are still cautious about making fresh purchases as energy markets are fluctuating. Meanwhile, local producers appear to be limiting their deliveries to the market since January as they try to maintain the current market levels.”
