A source from a Middle Eastern producer reported that they revealed their PE prices for February to Southeast Asian markets.

The producer raised its HDPE prices by $10/ton when compared to their latest levels, bringing their new offers to $1150/ton for HDPE blow moulding and HDPE film, all on a CIF SEA, cash basis. Meanwhile, the producer elected to keep their LLDPE film offers stable at $1200/ton with the same terms.

A source from the producer reported that they initially tried to offer LLDPE with a $10/ton increase as well, but did not see any buying interest. Evaluating regional markets, the source commented, “Buying activities slowed down in Vietnam while demand is doing okay in Malaysia and Indonesia. We think the PE market will remain on a stable to firmer note after the Chinese New Year holidays. Prices cannot increase much since low supplies and weak demand from endusers will counterbalance each other.”
