Southeast Asian producers raise PS offers

PS producers in Southeast Asia applied increases on their offers this week. Following the hike intentions of a Taiwanese producer revealed early in the week, Southeast Asian producers followed suit on the back of higher styrene costs in Asia.

A Singaporean producer lifted its offers by $50-60/ton to $1230/ton for GPPS and $1260/ton for HIPS, CIF SEA, cash. A company source said, “We lifted our offers due to our higher styrene costs. The other regional producer’s price hikes also helped our firmer stance.”

A Thai producer, meanwhile, held its GPPS offers stable and raised HIPS offers by $30-50/ton. “HIPS demand was relatively better than GPPS and we applied different amounts of increase depending on the market,” a company source said. The producer’s new offer levels for GPPS were at $1180/ton and $1230-1250/ton CIF SEA, cash.

A Malaysian producer also lifted its HIPS offers by $20/ton to $1250/ton with the same terms.

The new offer levels are yet to find acceptance as no deal was reported at the time of press.
