PP prices move higher on limited supplies in Indonesia
In the local market, a domestic PP producer made three consecutive upward adjustments on their prices, raising their offers for homo-PP injection and raffia by a cumulative amount of $80-90/ton. Their prices for other homo-PP grades were also up by $40/ton for film and coating, and by $50/ton for BOPP. The producer currently offers homo-PP raffia, injection, coating and BOPP at $1310/ton, and film at $1320-1330/ton, all on an FD Indonesia, cash basis.
Meanwhile, PP prices also witnessed some upward movement in the import market, with a major Southeast Asian producer announcing their March prices with increases of $90/ton for homo-PP and $60/ton for PP copolymer. The producer’s new prices currently stand at $1160/ton for homo-PP injection and raffia and at $1240/ton for PP block copolymer, all on a DAP Malaysia, cash basis, according to a trader. "Our supplier is feeling confident that more buyers are beginning to return to the market," the trader stated.

The converted said, "Supply is quite tight in Indonesia and we are waiting to receive new import offers before deciding on our next purchases.”
