A distributor operating in Saudi Arabia reported receiving new May PP and PE offers from a major Saudi producer with increases in line with expectations.

“The market lacks supplies and given the severe tightness, we were already expecting very large hike amounts from the producer. Meanwhile, another Saudi producer is undergoing a shutdown at their PP and PE plants and therefore, we do not expect any deliveries from them in May,” he said.

According to him, the local Saudi producer’s new May prices indicate SAR578-1013/ton ($154-270/ton) hikes for PE, SAR787/ton ($210/ton) increases for PP, SAR1153/ton ($307/ton) increases for PS and rollovers for PET.

The producer offers HDPE film at SAR4800/ton ($1280/ton), LDPE film at SAR5063/ton ($1350/ton), HDPE b/m at SAR4773/ton ($1273/ton), HDPE injection at SAR4763/ton ($1270/ton), LLDPE c4 injection at SAR4988/ton ($1330/ton), PP raffia and injection at SAR4950/ton ($1320/ton) GPPS injection at SAR6227/ton ($1660/ton), HIPS injection at SAR6535/ton ($1743/ton) and PET bottle at SAR4900/ton ($1307/ton), all on an FD Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, cash basis.
