According to buyers in Thailand, local PVC producers lowered their prices in the face of slowing demand ahead of the rainy season.

A compounder reported that a domestic producer reduced their PVC prices by THB1500/ton ($45/ton), bringing their offers to THB31000/ton on an FD Thailand, cash basis ($928/ton). “We are not planning to purchase beyond our urgent needs as we believe that prices will witness further reductions in June,” the buyer commented.

A PVC pipe manufacturer was also offered PVC by another domestic producer at THB31000/ton FD, cash ($928/ton). He stated, “We received new prices with reductions from local producers. Demand for our end products is thin due to the approaching monsoon season while the economy is not strong, which is also hindering buying appetite. We feel that prices still have room to move lower in the near term.”
