Seller slashes PP, PE prices to Kenya, Tanzania

A seller reported that they have lowered their PP and PE offers for August shipments to the Kenyan and Tanzanian markets this week. The seller is offering on behalf of a Middle East major who has conceded to decreases of $60-80/ton compared to July.

The seller commented, “Our supplier was holding offers firm and applying a ‘take it or leave it’ policy, but this week they have agreed to discounts.” He also noted that the producer had been in line with other Middle Eastern offers at the start of August, but that lower prices were seen later in the month as the markets came under pressure from competitive Asian origins.

Offers for Middle Eastern HDPE film are at $1400/ton, HDPE bm at $1410/ton, LDPE film at $1410-1440/ton, and LLDPE c4 film at $1380-1400/ton. Offers are based on CFR Mombasa, Kenya, 90 days and CFR Dar es Salam, United Republic of Tanzania.

For PP, the trader offers raffia grade at $1230/ton, PPBC injection at $1280-1350/ton and PPRC injection at $1400-1460/ton with the same terms.

Asian offers remain competitive, however, as the trader also offers Malaysian PP raffia and injection at $1150/ton with the same terms.
