A source from a Taiwanese PVC producer stated that CPC’s upcoming cracker maintenance will have an impact on regional PVC supplies in the upcoming months.

According to market sources, Taiwan’s CPC is planning to shut its No. 6 steam cracker at Linyuan on February 13, 2017 for maintenance. The cracker is expected to remain shut until April 10. The cracker has a production capacity of 720,000 tons/year of ethylene.

The source said, “Taiwan’s CPC will go under maintenance in February for almost two months. Therefore, we think that this will influence a major Taiwanese PVC producer’s supplies for the upcoming months as well.”
