Taiwanese producer lifts PS prices to Asia

A source from a Taiwanese producer reported that they applied increases on their PS offers to China and Southeast Asia due to firmer styrene and butadiene prices.

The producer lifted their prices by $25-30/ton for GPPS and by $5/ton for HIPS when compared to last week. The producer stands firm on their GPPS offers, concluding deals at their offer levels of $1405-1410/ton on a CIF China/SEA, cash basis for GPPS. For HIPS, they concluded deals with a $10-20/ton discount at $1410-1415/ton with the same terms.

A producer source commented, “Demand for GPPS is still better than HIPS. However, we have already suggested to our customers to buy HIPS now as most of the producers are likely to raise their offers significantly after Chinese New Year given surging butadiene costs.”
