Taiwanese major announces new PVC prices to Asia

A Taiwanese major has announced their new PVC prices to Asia, with a producer source commenting that the company has yet to fix a shipping date for their new offers.

"We are currently negotiating with our customers and our prices are showing some variation depending on the customer and the volume of purchase. Buyers are generally purchasing in smaller lots now. Although prices are down, we believe that we will be able to improve our market share this month as acetylene based PVC exports from China are no longer competitive and we also expect American producers to reduce their export allocations to the region as they will need to agree to steep reductions to remain competitive compared with Asian origins," a producer source commented.

The producer’s new prices stand at $790-810/ton to China, $780-800/ton to Southeast Asia and at $820-830/ton to India, all on a CIF/CFR, cash basis. Compared with the producer’s most recently reported offers for December shipment, the new prices represent decreases of $75-85/ton to India, $110-130/ton to China and $130/ton to SEA.
