LDPE prices rising in Russia

January 19/2010
MOSCOW (MRC) -- Prices for low-density polyethylene (LDPE) continue to rise in Russia. During the first week of the year, polyethylene became more than RUB2.000/mt more expensive according to MRC analysts.

Prices for Tomskneftekhims LDPE went up seriously at the beginning of the last week. Prices for polyethylene of other Russian producers had risen by the middle of the week, as well. Kazanorgsyntezs 158th grade moved at RUB46.50047.000/mt, including VAT, FCA Kazan.


Ufaorgsyntezs polyethylene was offered at RUB43.50044.500/mt, including VAT, FCA Ufa. Domestic prices in the Russian market went up because of high exports and growing world prices.


Earlier in January, LDPE prices in Asia and Western Europe went up on average by USD100-120/mt, compared to December, in view of several factors including continuously growing ethylene prices. As a result, by mid-January LDPE prices had climbed at EUR1.000/mt in Europe, and USD1.4501.500/mt in Asia. Taking into account such high polyethylene prices in Asia it is more payable for Russian producers to export. In December, exports exceeded 28 kt, including more than 22.2 kt to China.
