According to players in Malaysia, a domestic producer announced their December PP and PE prices to the local market with decreases. The producer reduced their prices by MYR380/ton ($90/ton) for homo-PP, by MYR230/ton ($54/ton) for LDPE and HDPE and by MYR100/ton ($23/ton) for LLDPE film.

The producer’s December PE prices stand at MRY5160/ton ($1216/ton) for LDPE film, at MYR5410/ton ($1275/ton) for LDPE injection, at MYR5300/ton ($1249/ton) for LLDPE c4 film, at MYR5120/ton ($1206/ton) for HDPE film and at MYR5190/ton ($1223/ton) for HDPE blow moulding and injection, all on an FD Malaysia, cash basis.

For PP, the producer’s prices stand at MYR4190/ton ($987/ton) for raffia and injection and at MYR4340-4390/ton ($1022-1034/ton) for PP film, all on an FD Malaysia, cash basis.

A converter who received these offers from the producer commented, “Demand remains weak in Malaysia in line with the ongoing depreciation of the ringgit against the dollar. We are planning to secure our regular quantities for December.”

Another converter also stated, “We believe that prices still have room for additional decreases for the coming term. Hence, we are cautiously purchasing according to our immediate needs nowadays.”
