Tanzanian trader: Saudi producer’s PP supplies tight
“Usually, May and June are the peak season for many PP applications. However, in order to be ready for the peak season, buyers usually start looking for cargoes in March and April so that they can start their manufacturing before the run up in demand. However, since PP supplies are tight, there is a bit of a panicky feeling amongst buyers, who are looking for alternative PP suppliers,” he commented.
The trader offers Saudi LDPE film (light duty) and LLDPE film with $20/ton increases from February at $1250/ton on CFR Dar es Salam, United Republic of Tanzania, 90 days deferred payment basis. Meanwhile, he also offers HDPE film and blow moulding at $1250/ton and HDPE injection at $1260/ton with the same terms.
