Taiwanese ABS supplier steps back on June prices in Turkey

In Turkey, Taiwanese ABS prices are now reported at $1700/ton for natural and $1850/ton for white grade CIF Turkey, subject to 6.5% customs duty, cash. The recent levels indicate $50/ton drops with respect to initial offers for June shipment cargos, which were revealed with rollovers from May.

A trader reported seeing slower demand for his ABS materials this week. “The general elections in Turkey are approaching and this has pushed players to the sidelines. Plus, it seems supply is not as limited as the previous weeks,” he said.

Another source of downward pressure comes from falling spot styrene prices in Asia. Styrene costs decreased by around $55/ton week over week to be reported at around $1255/ton FOB South Korea.

In addition, sentiment remains weak in China’s import ABS market with import Taiwanese ABS cargoes being priced lower at $1635-1700/ton CFR China, cash equivalent basis.
