Tunisian buyer: Middle Eastern PE 100 supplies tight

A converter operating in Tunisia reported that they have received up to €100/ton hikes for April PP and up to €50/ton hikes for April PE prices.

“PP and PE prices have increased from last month while we anticipate the increasing trend to continue into May. However, since we have previously made some large purchases at more competitive levels, we are refraining from making fresh purchases these days. We currently rely on our existing stocks, especially for PP. However, for PE, we might purchase some cargoes. In general, we deem supply levels as comfortable since we can obtain our needs without any problems. However, this is not the case for PE 100 cargoes. We struggle to secure PE 100 from our Middle Eastern suppliers while our European suppliers’ PE 100 prices are too high to accept,” commented the buyer.

The buyer received Middle Eastern PP raffia and injection at €1120/ton, HDPE injection at €1300/ton, LDPE film at €1180/ton and HDPE pipe (PE100) at €1240/ton on a CIF Tunis, Tunisia, 90 days deferred payment basis.
