A trader operating in Saudi Arabia reported that they received the new August PP, PE and PS prices from one of the local producers. According to him, the new prices indicate decreases from July levels, but he did not find the decrease amounts satisfactory at all.

“We were expecting larger decrease amounts given the large gap between the prices in Saudi Arabia and other markets such as Turkey and Southeast Asia. Following the decreases, overall demand has revived a bit while the fading lull of the Ramadan holiday also helped buying interest to improve. Coming to supply levels, we do not have a clear view for PE availability, but PP supplies appear to be fine,” he stated.

According to him, PE prices are down by SAR150-263/ton ($40-70/ton), PP prices are down by SAR300/ton ($80/ton) and GPPS and HIPS prices are down SAR375/ton ($100/ton) from the latest July levels they received.

The producer’s new HDPE film prices stand at SAR5063/ton ($1350/ton), HDPE b/m at SAR5176/ton ($1380/ton), LDPE and LLDPE c4 film at SAR5100/ton ($1360/ton), PP raffia and injection at SAR4913/ton ($1310/ton), GPPS injection at SAR5583/ton ($1489/ton) and HIPS injection at SAR5891/ton ($1571/ton) on an FD Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, cash basis.
