New offers for domestic PP are reported at US$1430/ton for homo-PP injection and raffia and at US$1470/ton for PP film, all on an FD Indonesia, cash basis, with a distributor reporting that they have already concluded some deals at ten dollars below the new producer price level.
In the PE market, sellers reported increasing their prices by US$50-70/ton for LLDPE film and by US$10-50/ton for HDPE film this week, with new offers for domestic cargoes currently being reported at US$1520-1550/ton for LLDPE film and at US$1440-1480/ton for HDPE film, all on an FD Indonesia, cash equivalent basis, with some done deals reported at the high end of the range.
