PP offers to other markets of South Asia from Middle East sellers have surfaced at above the $1580/tonne CFR L/C sight levels. also reports that GPPS and HIPS contract prices in Europe in late January were assessed at euro 1360/tonne and euro1405/tonne FD North West Europe levels, respectively. These rates, although stable from the week before, did represent an increase of euro 30/tonne from December contract price settlements.
Also, PP suppliers in Europe reported that contract-price settlements for January came in at euro1275/tonne FD North West Europe levels for injection-grade materials, a gain over December settlements. ABS general-purpose and natural-grade contact prices in Europe ended in the last week of January unchanged from the week before at euro 1670/tonne FD North West Europe levels.
