Players in Tunisia and Algeria: Polyolefin demand improving
A converter operating in Tunisia commented, “Supplies are still comfortable, but we have started to notice some upward movement in buying interest.”
Meanwhile, a converter operating in Algeria stated, “Supply levels are very comfortable in the Algerian market and demand has been performing well. We are anticipating further improvements in demand given the approaching high season for injection products. On another note, our European suppliers’ allocations are very limited and therefore prices for this origin are relatively higher when compared to Middle Eastern cargoes.”
