South African players receive May import and local PE prices

A trader operating in South Africa reported that a major Saudi producer lifted their HDPE and LLDPE film prices to the country by $140/ton for May to a single level of $1520/ton CFR South Africa, 90 days deferred payment basis.

Meanwhile, the trader also received new May PE prices from local producers with ZAR800/ton ($67/ton) hikes. Accordingly, Safripol’s HDPE film prices stand at ZAR17650/ton ($1302/ton w/o VAT) on FD Johannesburg, South Africa, cash inc 14% VAT basis while Sasol’s LDPE film prices stand at ZAR16850/ton ($1243/ton w/o VAT) and their LLDPE film prices are at ZAR17150/ton ($1265/ton w/o VAT) with the same terms.

“Both import and local prices indicate increases from April. The Saudi producer’s May supplies are very tight while Sasol’s LDPE film supplies are relatively more comfortable when compared with last month. Meanwhile, we are waiting for another Saudi Arabian producer’s offers, but we have not heard them yet. This particular producer’s allocations have been very tight during the previous months. On another note, demand remains restricted to buyers’ needs while supply constraints also cause buyers to refrain from restocking cargoes.”
