Players report ample HDPE b/m supplies in Turkey

In Turkey, the locally-held PE market entered May on a soft note due to discouraging buying interest. This week, PE distributors continue to give some discounts to entice demand, except for LDPE g03-5 grade, for which supply is considered to be quite tight. Meanwhile, HDPE blow moulding is said to be under more pressure given ample supplies for this product.

The prevailing price levels for prompt HDPE blow moulding broke below $1500/ton on the low end following speculations for lower prices during last week. The range currently stands at $1450-1550/ton ex-warehouse Turkey, cash inc VAT, down $60/ton on the low end from last week.

In the import market, traders also have prompt Iranian HDPE blow moulding (BL3) cargos at their bounded-warehouses to offer. These materials are priced between $1140-1200/ton FCA Turkey, subject to 6.5% customs duty, cash. The level is down $20-30/ton week over week, meanwhile.

A trader who tried to offer some material at the high end admitted, “We revised down our HDPE b/m price by $30-50/ton this week. However, we continue to face very poor demand even after our price cut.” Another player said, “Some distributors brought large tonnages of HDPE blow moulding from Iran in the previous months and it seems that they are now trying to pare down their stocks.”
