In Kenya, more import Middle Eastern offers have started to surface in the market this week while the fresh offers are being announced with increases, in line with expectations.

Previously, a major Saudi Arabian producer had approached the Kenyan market with April PP and PE price hikes while more converters reported receiving new offers from different Saudi producers as of today.

Looking at the overall increase amounts so far, the new offers indicate $80-105/ton increases for PE and $80-100/ton increases for PP, according to the players.

Overall import Middle Eastern prices stand at $1270/ton for HDPE and LLDPE film and at $1290/ton for LDPE film, $1050-1060/ton for PP raffia and injection, $1080/ton for PP film and fibre on CFR Mombasa, Kenya, 90 days deferred payment basis.

There are different views on general supply levels in the market. Some players highlight the limited Middle Eastern supplies, which support sellers on their firm offer levels, while some report that supplies are not that problematic and are in line with the current demand. End product demand, meanwhile, generally is deemed as normal, according to the players in the country.
