A major Saudi Arabian producer announced their February PP and PE prices to the Southeast Asian market with sizeable decreases of $100/ton for homo-PP, $120/ton for BOPP, $50/ton for PP block copolymer, $40-60/ton for LLDPE film and $60-70/ton for HDPE film.

The producer’s new prices for February stand at $1050/ton for homo-PP raffia, injection and BOPP, at $1180/ton for PP block copolymer, at $1140/ton for LLDPE film and at $1150/ton for HDPE film, all on a CIF SEA, cash basis.

A source from the producer stated, “We hope to conclude deals at our initial levels but we may consider giving some discounts to serious buyers. Demand has shown some improvements in the nearby Chinese market and we expect this to provide some support for prices in Southeast Asia.”

A Southeast Asian trader who reported receiving new February prices from the Saudi producer stated, “We think that the producer’s new levels are not workable in the regional markets, where most buyers are looking for levels below $1100/ton CIF, cash.”
