In Turkey, an increasing number of PP players report that prompt supplies have been tight for random copolymer grades since early April.

European import PPRC inj. prices are reported at €1450-1490/ton CIF Turkey, cash for different origins this week. Meanwhile, deals for a Central European origin were concluded at €1450/ton CPT, cash delivery by train.

An agent of a South European supplier confirmed, “We have very limited PP copolymer allocation while PPRC injection supply is particularly tight in the market.” A second trader also said that buyers are taking a wait and see stance but it is hard to secure material from producers.

South Korean PPRC inj. was offered at $1600/ton CIF Turkey, subject to 3.2% customs duty, cash.

In the locally-held market, on the way Middle Eastern and South Korean PPRC inj. materials are offered at $2000-2030/ton ex-warehouse Turkey, cash inc VAT. Last week’s $1950/ton level was not repeated so far this week. Some distributors commented that prompt materials could be offered with a premium compared to those figures.

Regarding PPRC pipe type 3, for which supply from Europe is said to be tight, the recent levels from the region are quoted at €1470-1480/ton CIF Turkey, cash no duty. Last week, various origins were initially offered for April at €1430-1450/ton with the same terms. A converter found these European offers too high to accept. “We feel that current levels are inflated because of tightness,” he opined.

South Korean PPRC pipe type 3 was given at $1520/ton CIF, subject to 3.2% customs duty, cash following prices at $1500/ton reported from pipe converters last week.
