A source from a Thai producer reported that they implemented increases on their PP and HDPE pipe (PE100) offers to Southeast Asian markets.

The producer raised their homo-PP raffia and injection prices by $40/ton when compared to last week, bringing their new offers to $1180-1200/ton CIF SEA, cash basis. “Our PP copolymer supply is a bit tight at the moment due to a mechanical issue at one of our production lines. We may resume our copolymer offers next week,” the source said.

For HDPE pipe (PE100), the producer issued an increase of $20/ton on their offers to the regional markets, bringing their new prices to $1350/ton CIF, cash. The source commented, “Buyers are not that willing to replenish their HDPE pipe stocks nowadays due to the crude oil volatility which cast a shadow over the current firm trend.”

The source also commented on their PS and ABS operations, stating, “Our GPPS supply is a bit tight as we are still running our styrene unit at a lower rate while we have comfortable availability for HIPS. Trading activities are quite slow in the regions’ PS markets this week while our offers currently stand at $1300/ton CIF for GPPS and at $1350/ton CIF for HIPS. Meanwhile, we are not giving any ABS offers to Southeast Asia at the moment as we are mostly concentrated on the European markets nowadays.”
